rally and march at Confederation Building on Prince Philip Drive. This was a grass roots movement that I organized in attempt to raise awareness to some of the challenges still facing members of the trans community, a the overall LGBT community 'celebrates' Pride Week.
Although the turn out of 10, was a far cry from the 2000 who attended the official Pride parade later in the week, the event attracted the attention of CBC Radio, who did a 9 minute live interview with me on site.
Included in the attendance, was Rebecca Martin, another keen local trans activist, who also received a radio interview from CBC, later in the week, to discuss trans issues.
There was also a special appearance by my alter-ego, Trans Mysterio, my pro wrestling character, who added some fun to an otherwise serious event.
The rally lasted 2 hours, with more than 1000 cars driving by on the busy intersection. Many folks honked horns and waved in support. The march consisted of an out and back 2 km walk down Prince Philip Drive towards lovely Kent's Pond. Along the way, we found a portable toilet, and declared it was 'gender neutral'.
