Thousands of trans people take to the streets for first-ever National Trans Visibility March

Thousands of trans people and their allies came together for the National Trans Visibility March in Washington DC on September 28 in support of equal rights for the trans community and to demand justice for the trans people who have been murdered in the US.

The first-ever National Transgender Visibility March saw as many as 3,000 people march from Freedom Plaza in downtown DC, where the event began with a two-hour rally, to a street four blocks away from the US Capitol.

Speakers included Pose actress Angelica Ross and the president of the Human Rights Campaign, Alphonso David.

Many of those marching carried signs saying “Trans Lives Matter” and told the Washington Blade they were marching for the rights of trans people and the lives of black trans women.
