This week, trans community members from Queens, including members of our Trans Immigrant Project, came together at our 10th Annual #TransLatinxMarch in Corona Plaza. Together we shared our stories of resilience and the importance of our demands in the fight for trans liberation.
This year, trans community members demanded that the city, state, and federal governments pass long overdue legislation to ensure respect and dignity for all. We called for dismantling NYPD vice units that disproportionately target and criminalize trans women of color, decriminalizing sex work in the state, and passing a pathway to citizenship at the federal level for all undocumented people.
The #TransLatinxMarch began 10 years ago as a small community march to demand an end to employment discrimination, and has grown to be a major annual event that has focused on demanding an end to transphobic violence, fighting to stop the criminalization and detention of trans people, and more.
Thank you for all your support over the years! Check out some photos from our powerful event below.
