- Unease in the air as Trans March kicks off weekend of Pride in SF
Saturday Jun 24, 2017
Midway through the San Francisco Trans March, a full brass, gay band blared out a stirring rendition of David Bowie and Queen’s “Under Pressure,” an anthem that seemed to match the mood of the moment of the thousands of trans people and their supporters who packed San Francisco’s streets Friday evening.Though the overall mood of the Trans March — which began in 2004 and kicked off Friday morning with a community brunch at Mission Dolores Park — was one of jubilation, beneath it appeared an undercurrent of unease, of anger, of resistance.The evening, after all, marked the first such march, one of several events related to the San Francisco Pride celebration that lasts all weekend, under President Trump, a figure reviled by much of the LGBT community in the Bay Area.On Thursday, Attorney General Xavier Becerra added four states — Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas — to a list subject to California’s state-sponsored travel ban, saying each state had enacted laws that discriminated against LGBT individuals and their families.“We are stronger together, and our event really wants to be the place where people are inspired, they’re invigorated, they feel prepared for the resistance,” said Dylan Martin, chair of the board of directors for the march.Before the march, before the chants of “Trans rights are human rights” and “This is what democracy looks like,” a couple of veterans of the Bay Area LGBT scene sat on a bench overlooking the masses gathering at Dolores Park below.San Francisco residents Jolene Engo, a trans woman, and her friend Erin O’Neill, who identifies as a “dyke,” took in the marijuana smoke wafting in a lazy haze toward a surprisingly clear San Francisco sky, glancing down upon the two dozen white tents packed with LGBT vendors, musing aloud on progress made toward trans rights and considering the ways to go.
