Thousands of people filled Dolores Park and marched down Market Street on Friday as part of the 16th annual Trans March.
Held on the Friday of Pride weekend since 2004, the Trans March is billed as the largest trans Pride event in San Francisco and one of the largest in the world. Daytime festivities included a resource fair, family area and musical and dance performances at Dolores Park, all leading up to a march down Market Street toward Taylor and Turk streets in honor of the 1966 riot at Compton's Cafeteria led by transgender women.
"We have so much to celebrate, and it’s important to be out here in celebration with community and allies," said Sister Golda Lox of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, "(but) also it's a place for us to rise up against the still many things we need to fight for and towards with community and love."
