Trans Atlantans and their allies rallied, chanted and took to the streets during Pride on Saturday as part of the annual Trans March.
The event included stops at both Pride stages inside Piedmont Park before stepping off at the Charles Allen Drive entrance. From there, the marches moved west on 10th Street to Peachtree Street before returning to the park on 14th Street. Rally speakers included Tracee McDaniel, a Pride parade grand marshal, and trans activists Raquel Willis and Mickyel Bradford.
In August, nearly 100 LGBT activists rallied outside a MARTA station in downtown Atlanta to call attention to an epidemic of anti-trans violence.
