The Trans March
June 22 at 3:30pm, March at 7:00pm
The largest transgender celebration in history!
The Fourth Annual Trans March will take place Friday June 22nd in Dolores Park, San Francisco. Live bands, transgender and gender-variant activists, political speakers, drag kings, and musicians will perform from 3:30 pm till 7 pm, and the March itself will begin at 7 pm. Performances in Dolores Park will continue after the March until 9 pm.
The Trans March is a grassroots, community-building political event, welcoming transgender, genderqueer, intersex, and all genders of people, as well as allies. It is a demonstration of trans visibility, celebrating the growth of a gender movement. The purpose of this event is to:
1. Demonstrate that the violence and discrimination directed against the transgender community will not be tolerated.
2. Celebrate the struggles of the trans community for respect, acceptance, and civil rights.
3. Build a supportive, unified trans community by bringing together diverse genders, ages, ethnic backgrounds along with our allies.
Last year’s historic Trans March brought together an estimated 7,000-8,000 people for an amazing community-driven grassroots demonstration on the weekend of LGBT Pride. Featured speakers and artists on our Dolores Park sound stage included punk/glam-rocker Shawna Virago, the Momma’s Boyz drag king ensemble, Transgender In Prison project director Alex Lee, celebrated transman hip-hop artist Katastrophe, all-transwoman rock band Lipstick Conspiracy, intersex activist and performance writer Thea Hillman, elected officials such as State Assemblyman Mark Leno who have championed Transgender civil rights issues, and many others. This year’s event is expected to attract over 10,000 transgender people and allies.
