Philly Trans March 2017
October 7, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us October 7, 2017, for the 7th annual Philly Trans March!
Philly Trans March is not only a rally and demonstration, but also a revolutionary movement. Open to people of all gender identities, expressions, and experiences, Philly Trans March welcomes everyone to join in this MARCH TOWARDS EQUITY AND LIBERATION. Join us as we STAND UP & FIGHT BACK against the hate, social injustice, and inequality faced by Trans and Gender non-conforming communities.
Issues such as hate violence, specifically against Trans Women of Color, and the lack of official concern, oppressive healthcare policies, media misgendering, financial and housing insecurity, police brutality, workplace policies and employment discrimination, and the lack of resources for t/gv/gq/gnc youth and elders, are just a few of the concerns being voiced upon in this year’s March.
PTM is also a CELEBRATION of the triumphs we have experienced in our city and the unique resources Philadelphia offers to our community. With an aim to increase Trans, GV, GQ and GNC visibility and to uplift our voices, the Philly Trans March is an affirmation of our beauty, strength, and diversity. Organized by members of Philly’s Trans and Gender non-conforming communities and accomplices, this endeavor is committed to creating a safer, more inclusive environment for everyone.
