ECTA Trans Day of Visibility (TDOV) Tour 2015 a success!

It was an historic week for the trans community here in Newfoundland, as the 7th annual International Transgender Day of Visibility, was commemorated in 6 towns, by representatives of the East Coast Trans Alliance, along with town council reps, allies, and allied partners.  For the very first time, the trans flag was raised at 6 town halls to commemorate this day: Torbay, Harbour Grace, Carbonear, Logy Bay - Middle Cove - Outer Cove, Gander, and Grand Falls-Windsor. A big thanks to all who participated!  Here are some videos and photographs, and media reports, from the events:
