135 people came out on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Boston to honor LGBT movement icon Harvey Milk on what would have been his 80th birthday. The commemoration at the Massachusetts State House centered on equal rights for Transgender Americans, and winning passage of the Trans Civil Rights Bill, H. 1728 pending before the Massachusetts legislature. Signs and chants rang out a message of “Trans rights now!” and “Hey hey, ho ho, transphobia’s got to go,” as a succession of speakers demanded action on H. 1728 before the close of the 2009-2010 legislative session at the end of July.
