San Francisco City Hall has been lit in Trans flag colours to mark Trans Awareness Month.
Earlier this month, people from across the City joined Mayor, London Breed, Senator Scott Wiener and Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, at a ceremony held at City Hall, where the Trans flag was raised, as part of efforts to celebrate the local Trans community.
“In San Francisco, we celebrate our diversity.
“Despite transphobic and bigoted efforts around the country to dismantle the rights of trans people, our trans community will never be erased.
“We are committed to continuing our investments in the trans community, providing support through policies and programs, and maintaining our unyielding commitment to equal rights for all.”Mayor of San Francisco, London Breed
San Francisco has long been an important hub for America’s LGBTI community. It was home to the first openly gay elected official in California, Harvey Milk. Milk served on the city’s Board of Supervisors from 1977 until his assassination a year later.
