St. Petersburg Trans Rally Event

By Charlotte Robinson, November 01, 2018
LGBTQ advocates & allies are rallying together on Sunday November 4th in St. Petersburg, Florida responding to the Trump Administration’s latest disturbing plans to rollback important rights & protections for transgender & gender non-conforming people. The 'We Won't Be Erased' Transgender Rally of Support will take place at Williams Park 350 2nd Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL at 11A EST. Speaking at the event will be Taylor TeMonet Burts, Aaron Phoenix, Vanessa Valenziano Nichols, Samira Obeid, Nadine Smith Equality Florida, Ashley Rhodes-Courter, Kiala Emmons Metro Wellness & Community Centers, Gina Driscoll St Pete City Council Member, Esmé Rodríguez Equality Florida, Nathan Bruemmer, ALSO Youth & more. The Trump Administration has made it a priority to target our transgender & gender non-conforming community with overt discriminatory policies through the transgender military ban, rescinding school guidance for trans youth & excluding LGBTQ people from the 2020 census. In Florida & across the nation we know how these types of dehumanizing policies can lead to an increase in discrimination & violence against our transgender community. This year since February five black transgender women have been brutally murdered in Florida representing nearly a quarter of all reported anti-transgender murders in the entire nation so far this year. Equality Florida, TransAction Florida & ALSO Youth are calling on the community to come together to denounce these discriminatory policies by the Trump Administration & to tell elected officials to speak out against the rise of anti-transgender hate & violence & to stand in solidarity with the transgender & gender non-conforming community.
