Bay Area residents held vigils across the region Sunday to protest the weekend’s violent white-supremacy rallies in Virginia that led to the death of a social-justice activist and murder charges against the man who drove his car into her.“We need to send a louder message of love than the prevailing narrative of hate and discrimination,” said Renata Moreira, 41, of Oakland, executive director of Our Family Coalition, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender family group.Yet as speaker after speaker quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela, sang a few songs in Hebrew or joked about “Trump Traumatic Stress Disorder,” the crowd of hundreds sat rapt and remained peaceful well into the night.Numerous other antiracism gatherings were scheduled throughout the day in Novato, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Point Reyes Station, Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Mill Valley, Albany, El Cerrito, Castro Valley, Mountain View and La Honda, many of them organized by Indivisible, a progressive political group.[...] many participants yelled that they were not there to bash the ACLU, only to condemn racism and mourn the death of Heather Heyer, who was struck and killed in Charlottesville when a suspected neo-Nazi plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters.On Saturday night, a rally that drew some 450 protesters in downtown Oakland temporarily shut down a portion of Interstate 580, but police reported no arrests, vandalism or injuries.

- Transgender day camp among first to include 4-year-olds
By JOCELYN GECKER, Associated Press - Monday Aug 7, 2017
Kids arrive with a packed lunch, make friendship bracelets, play basketball, sing songs and get silly.The camp in the San Francisco Bay Area city of El Cerrito caters to transgender and "gender fluid" children, ages 4 to 12, making it one of the only camps of its kind in the world open to preschoolers, experts say.Gender specialists say the camp's growth reflects what they are seeing in gender clinics nationwide: increasing numbers of children coming out as transgender at young ages.There is little comprehensive data on young children who identify as transgender, but experts say as the number of young people coming to their clinics increases, the prevailing medical guidance has shifted.The favored protocol today is known as the "gender affirmative" approach, which focuses on identifying and helping transgender children to "socially transition" - to live as the gender they identify with rather than the one they were born with until they're old enough to decide on medical options like puberty blockers and later, hormone treatments.The Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles, started a decade ago with about 40 patients, now has over 900 people, ages 3 to 25, enrolled in its program, with 150 on its waiting list, said Johanna Olson-Kennedy, the clinic's medical director.Diane Ehrensaft, director of mental health at the University of California, San Francisco's Child and Adolescent Gender Center, says enrollment there has tripled over the past few years with a "sea change - maybe we can even call it a tsunami - in the number of little kids showing up with their families."A 2016 study by the University of Washington's TransYouth Project, published in the journal Pediatrics, found trans children who live as their preferred gender and are supported by their parents have the same mental health outcomes as other kids their age.Many counselors are transgender, which offers campers upbeat role models.Nao was happier and less prone to outbursts, made friends, opened up about school bullying, and wants to return next summer.
