State-wide transgender organizations gather for summit – By Kenneth Harvey, Editorial Intern

Last weekend, the state-wide transgender community gathered for San Diego’s 4th Annual Transgender Leadership Summit.

Equality California, Transgender Law Center, along with more than 20 community-based organizations presented the three-day affair, hosted by the University of California San Diego.

The event was billed as a major event for identifying and building transgender community leaders and giving activists an opportunity to create a voice to advance the movement for transgender equality and to address barriers they face.
