This year, it was standing room only. Because I am working to be an ally, I stood off to the side. There were people with much better cameras, anyway.

In 2017, we have good scholarship that tells us that Transgender Women of Color are Murdered Much More Often, via American Journal of Public Health

Thank you Mayor Muriel Bowser (@MayorBowser), Chief of Police Peter Newsham, (@ChiefNewsham), and Sgt. Jessica Hawkins, of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Liaison Unit (LGBTLU) | mpdc for being present, protecting us, and reaffirming Washington, DC’s commitment and existence as the most protective of human rights in the United States. It’s why we came here.
