March & Vigil Tony Mcdade
A vigil and march was organized by Transinclusive Group, Ujima, FedFam4Life and New Florida Majority for Tony McDade following a police killing of an unarmed trans man in Florida’s State Capital city on May 27.
Over 100 protesters, clad in masks and holding picket signs, arrived at Huizenga park on a summery Sunday afternoon.
Tony McDade, a 38-year-old trans-African American man, was gunned down by the police at the Leon Arms apartment complex in Tallahassee, Florida.
Dictionary.com defines prom as a formal dance, ideally one held by a class in high school or college at the end of a year. This year that definition will take on a totally different meaning thanks to the Transinclusive Group.
They are taking the lead by creating the first ever LGBT TransInclusive Prom; the event will take place on August 26, at the Roadway Inn located in Fort Lauderdale. Getting dressed, looking fierce, and dancing to Beyoncé in high heels is exactly what the doctor ordered, considering what the trans community has been through as of late.
