This morning, I proudly accepted the International Transgender Day of Visibility proclamation awarded by the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors on behalf of the South Bay TDOV team.
Beforehand, we had – remarkably, for the second time – raised the transgender pride flag outside of the county building. The small ceremony that featured several local speakers, including a representative from the recent LGBTQ health assessment as well as Supervisor Ken Yeager, Director of the Office of LGBTQ Affairs Maribel Martinez, and myself.
Expect to see more links and photos as they come in! I was interviewed by the local news, so maybe we’ll get a link to that too.
There are many people locally who are involved in transgender issues, lawyers and doctors, politicians and lifestyle coaches. Thank you all for showing Trans Pride.
