Transgender and Sex Workers Advocates Rally to End the Violence

Tuesday, April 25th was New York’s first ever Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Non-Binary, and Intersex Advocacy Day at the State Capitol. Groups such as New Pride Agenda, NY Transgender Advocacy, Make the Road, Housing Works, and LGBT Center NYC rallied in support of various bills, including the Stop Violence In The Sex Trades Act; Safe Haven For Trans Youth & Families; and The Gender Identity Respect, Dignity, and Safety Act (GIRDS). The group also wanted to increased state budget funding to expand the Lorena Borjas Transgender & Non-Binary Wellness & Equity Fund. We hear Make the Road NY, NY Transgender Advocacy, Assemblymembers Harvey Epstein and Deborah Glick, and Senator Brad Hoylman. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
