Brooklyn Liberation March Brings Attention to Trans Youth

For a second consecutive year, a large crowd of people donning white shirts marched in the historic Brooklyn Liberation demonstration — and this time the focus was placed squarely on transgender youth. The June 13 event kicked off at Brooklyn Museum before continuing through the streets of Brooklyn, where folks set out match the energy that was on display one year ago. The spotlight on trans youth seemed inevitable during a year when State Legislatures across the nation have sought to ban trans youth from participating in sports, curtail healthcare rights, and reactivate campaigns to impose transphobic bathroom policies. Last year’s record levels of deadly violence against transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary individuals carried into this year, with more than two dozen individuals suffering violent deaths so far in 2021.
