March 31st was Transgender Day of Visibility and kicked off more than a week of events around the country focused on awareness of the successes of the Trans* communities. From Trans*Hack Chicago and The Trans 100 list unveiling, to events right here in San Diego County.
Some of the highlights:
Tonight at The Center in Hillcrest is Trans Day of Empowerment 6-9pm.
Monday starts a full week of visibility at SDSU with events every day including a flag raising, panel, and film screening – check it out at http://www.facebook.com/events/240028162849386
The Transgender Leadership Summit takes place April 11-13.
And of course we are holding the Genderqueer San Diego meetup this Sunday, April 6th. As always, you are welcome to bring in any questions or topics that you want to discuss. Allies and anyone who wants to be part of the conversation are always welcome.
April is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Check out the work that Center for Community Solutions is doing on prevention and intervention of sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse at www.ccssd.org
