Transgender Activists Host Rally Against Transphobia in Jackson Heights After String of Attacks

The activists joined members of the organization Make the Road New York at Manuel De Dios Unanue Triangle (83rd Street and Roosevelt Avenue) to bring attention to six incidents in which a trans or gender non-conforming person was assaulted in Queens or Brooklyn over the last two weeks.

Jennifer, a trans woman from Queens who didn’t provide her last name, spoke about how she was assaulted over the weekend as she waited for a taxi with friends.
