March to honor Black Trans Lives that have been lost.
June 28th, 2020 is the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which is widely regarded as the beginning of the Gay Liberation Movement in the US. All rights LGTBQ+ people have now are because of the actions taken by Marsha P Johnson, a Black trans woman, and Stormé DeLarverie, a Black butch lesbian. On this day, we will be honoring all the Black queer people, and especially Black trans women, who have given us our contemporary rights today.
In line with the national demands from BLM, there will be a focus on defunding the police. We must look at divesting from policing and investing into our communities. We are working on a list of demands that will be released.
The march from Four Tree and Traip Academy may not be accessible for people who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids due to hills, but the route into Portsmouth will be. We welcome folks to meet us at either side of Memorial Bridge, about 20 minutes after the march kicks off. We are also looking for ASL Interpreters and will update this page as that unfolds. If you know anyone interested in helping out, please DM us! There will be loud noises during this march.
