Come join the Castro demonstration celebrating Black History month to affirm and celebrate the lives of Black LGBTQ people.
San Francisco's recent increase in violence against transgender women with the deaths of Anastasia and Taja de Jesus and the anti-black racism of local establishments like Toad Hall have led us to take collective action.
We are planning for community building, music, performances, and brief community leaders' speeches. Following the celebration, we will have a moment of silence for our fallen family members as we march in solidarity down Castro street to Toad Hall to declare that all #BlackLivesMatter. Afterwards, we will continue the dialogue and community building at The Mix.
We invite you to join a celebration! We invite you to build community! We invite you to find safe spaces for us! Help us call out Castro and celebrate black queer and trans lives in our community. #CalloutCastro #TransLivesMatter #BlackLivesMatter
During the event, we ask that you please abstain from using any and all substances. We want everyone to be present for this movement, both physically and mentally.
