On Saturday the 18th of March, a tiny group organised a transphobic protest on the Parliament steps. This tiny group was joined by a gang of masked neo-Nazis, who have spent the last six months terrorising queer events.
They do this to intimidate us. They do this because they want us to disappear. They do this because they would love nothing more than for us to quietly go back into the closet.
Enough is enough. This is our city, and we will not recede back into the shadows quietly. We are bigger, stronger, and more resilient than the hate groups who organise against us. We have more allies, and more people who love us than they ever will. Now let’s show them how big and powerful we are.
March 31st is Trans Day of Visibility. The Pride Lobby, supported by Victorian Trades Hall Union Pride Network are calling a march from the State Library after work. Start gathering at 5:30pm, and bring every, single person you can think of.
Let’s make this the biggest rally for trans rights that the country has ever seen.
