More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
GLAAD Endorses the 6th Annual Trans Day of Action
Friday, June 25th marks the 6th Annual Trans Day of Action in New York City. This year's march, organized by the Audre Lorde Project, steps off at City Hall Park at 4pm and returns to the park at 7pm.
According to the statement on ALP's website:
"On June 25 2010, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color and allies will take to the streets of NYC once again and demand justice to let the world know, that the rebellion is not over and we will continue fighting for justice, raising our voices until we are heard. We call on all activist and organizers for justice, both local and organizations around the country and world to endorse this call to action and to build contingents to march in solidarity together."
If you would like to organize a contingent of five or more people, please contact Jennifer at email@example.com or call 718-596-0342 x 32, so that your contingent may be listed on Trans Day of Action materials.
