Why We March
This Saturday, October 8th, marks the 6th annual Philly Trans* March, which will kick off at 3:00 p.m. at Thomas Paine Plaza, 1401 JFK Blvd, just across from City Hall.
The sole purpose of the Philly Trans* March is to inspire all trans and gender non-conforming people to realize a world where they are safe, loved, and empowered. We strive to create a space for our diverse communities to unite and achieve the social justice and equality that each of us deserves.
Philly Trans* March is not only a demonstration, but rather a movement. It is a celebration of triumphs we have experienced in our city and a protest against the hate, social injustice, and inequality faced by trans*, gender variant, gender queer and gender non-conforming communities. We march to increase visibility and to gain equality for those communities.
Sisterly LOVE has participated in the Philly Trans* March every year for the last four years. On Saturday, October 8th we will march with our Trans sisters and brothers, gender variant, gender queer and gender non-conforming folks, activists and organizations who all come together to push for transgender justice, recognizing that we are stronger by working together. We invite you to join us.
