Trans youth having fun outside the white house as a sign of protest


LGBT activists in Washington D.C. held a dance party outside of the White House to celebrate the diversity and acceptance of young transgender people. Demonstrators supported pride flags and rainbow suspenders as they danced to Beyoncé and Michael Jackson to protest against Donald Trump’s revoking of the rights of transgender school students. Activists were inspired to hold the event after the Trump administration rolled back protections for trans students that were set out under President Obama. Werk for Peace, the Transgender Women of Colour Collective and Empowering the Transgender Community all organised the event that took note of the dance-demonstration held outside of Mike Pence’s home. Organisers wanted to celebrate young trans people and trans people of colour, while also making a statement against anti-trans policies including North Carolina’s HB2. “Any attack on our young people will not be ignored or go unchallenged. In formidable opposition, we will take to the White House to WERK it OUT for our liberation,” it said on the Facebook event page.
