First Annual #March4TransEquality on Washington, D.C. to be held
during Weekend of Solidarity and Celebration September 28, 2019
NEW YORK, May 2019 — Members of the transgender, gender non-conforming and non-binary communities (TGNC/NB) will be taking a major stand against hate and discrimination when they rally in the Nation’s Capital for the first ever National Trans Visibility March (NTVM) on Washington, D.C., September 28, 2019. The march rally will start at 10:00am at Freedom Plaza followed by the march at 11:00am in the Nation’s Capital. The National Trans Visibility March Ambassadors from Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Memphis, New York and San Francisco will lead the charge partnering with national and local allies calling for the passing of the Equality Act, which includes equal rights, fair housing, financial equity, healthcare equality and physical safety.
The National Trans Visibility March is of critical importance at this time. With the Equality Act of 2019 being threatened by the Senate and the trans military ban implementation, there is a need to mobilize America to recognize and fight for the rights of TGNC/NB people. Although the current administration has intentionally rolled back efforts to prevent inclusion of transgender communities in the US census, individuals from the TGNC/NB communities have mobilized and issued a call to action to dismantle the social structures that have oppressed and disenfranchised the TGNC/NB community.
The #March4TransEquality weekend will begin Friday night September 27, 2019 with the Torch Award Ceremony honoring TGNC/NB leaders for their more than 15 years of national service. The ceremony will take place at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA.
Registration for the National Trans Visibility March is suggested, but not required. Donations from all in any amount are welcome. Donations of at least $25 will receive a National Trans Visibility March t-shirt and other items. The Torch Awards are a separate, ticketed event. For more information, register for the NTVM or purchase tickets to The Torch Awards please go to transmarchondc.org. Make your pledge today with the National Transgender Community and become a partner in the first visible #March4TransEquality historic movement to come to our nation’s capital!
