Oakland, CA—February 2, 2015 – Oakland-based Transgender Law Center has been nominated to be this year’s San Francisco LGBT Pride Community Organizational Grand Marshal. Last week the San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride celebration committee and its board of directors announced the list of nominees for the public’s choice for Individual Community Grand Marshal and Organizational Community Grand Marshal.
“We are extremely humbled by the nomination to be this year’s Community Organizational Grand Marshal” said Kris Hayashi, Executive Director. “Transgender Law Center is especially grateful to be nominated this year in light of the many groundbreaking victories we’ve accomplished in the Bay Area and beyond including the passing of the School Success and Opportunity Act in K-12 schools and litigating for federal protections against employment discrimination based on gender identity or expression under Title VII.”
Transgender Law Center since its founding in San Francisco in 2002 has been changing laws, policies and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression.
“It will be a great honor for Transgender Law Center to represent the trans and gender nonconforming community at SF Pride this year. It’s the first time that Transgender Law Center has been nominated, and this means a lot to our staff and volunteers who help up to 2,500 people each year,” said Masen Davis, former Executive Director and one of the candidates for Individual Community Grand Marshal for the 2015 SF Pride Parade.
Voting for this year’s SF Pride Organizational Grand Marshal and Individual Grand Marshal starts today and will be open thru March 2, 2015. #SFPrideGrandMarshalVote #VoteTransLawCenter #VoteMasen
