It was great to see the Trans, Two-Spirit, and Genderqueer Liberation and Celebration March in East Vancouver on Friday evening (August 1).
Hundreds of people marched up Commercial Drive, chanting slogans and wielding protest signs.
One sign read "Fuck gender roles" while another said "Be who you are!"
Earlier this week, Shoshannah Izsak, one of the organizers of the march, told the Georgia Straight the event was "both a protest for trans rights and a celebration of trans people".
Today (August 2), the 11th annual Vancouver Dyke March and Festival comes to Commercial Drive.
The march will begin at McSpadden Park at noon and head to the fest at Grandview Park.
