New for this year is a particularly timely addition. Georgia Equality will speak to participants in the Trans March about voting resources specifically for transgender or gender non-conforming individuals.
“We are very excited to have that partnership in such an important election year,” Green-Fergerson said.
Sign-making materials for both the Trans March and the Dyke March are available near the Charles Allen Gate on Saturday.
Pride organizers are also planning a Dyke and Trans March dance party with DJ Speakerfoxxx after the Dyke March on Saturday evening.
About 150 people gathered for the Trans March in 2011 and Green-Fergerson would love to exceed those numbers this year. The event has grown every year since its inception.
The Trans March is sponsored by the Lloyd E. Russell Foundation.
