Transgender Day of Visibility Recap
Mahalo again to all those from the community who joined us on March 29 for sign waving at the state capitol. Well over 100 attended, including state Representatives Adrian Tam, Amy Perruso, Jackson Sayama, and Jeannè Kapela, and state Senators Chris Lee and Laura Acasio. On March 31, over six dozen people joined us online for “Stories of Strength,” including a presentation from HHHRC LGB&T Youth Houseless Case Manager Maddison Moliga.
President Biden again issued a proclamation to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility this year, challenging the wave of anti-trans legislation across the nation: “In the past year, hundreds of anti-transgender bills in States were proposed across America, most of them targeting transgender kids. The onslaught has continued this year. These bills are wrong.”
President Biden further added, “Transgender people are some of the bravest Americans I know, and our Nation and the world are stronger, more vibrant, and more prosperous because of them. To transgender Americans of all ages, I want you to know that you are so brave. You belong. I have your back.”
