  1. “Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, Americans continue to experience stark social, economic, and health disparities despite significant gains in securing basic rights for LGBT people over the last decade. According to recent data families headed by black same-sex couples are more likely to raise their children in poverty, black lesbians are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases, and black LGBT youth are more likely to end up homeless and living on the streets.” – Center for American Progress

  2. Those who might be in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday May 19th, 2013 there will be the second annual Transgender Day of Celebration picnic at Minnehaha Falls Park. From 4 pm to 10 PM.

    Two years ago at the Transgender Day of Remembrance services in Minneapolis, MN, they opened the floor for announcements and discussion after the remembrance service was completed. Someone suggested a summer event as TDoR is celebrated 20 November when it usually cold and possibly snow or icy in Minneapolis, MN. (If I recall the temperature was 10F and there was ice on the sidewalks leading to the church entry. I braved the elements and wore a tweed skirt with a satin liner, nylons, two inch heels and my new ski jacket). A committee was formed and the first Transgender Day of Celebration took place last summer at Powederhorn Park in south Minneapolis. The event was well attended by both TG and those who support them.

    If your interested in more information PM please!
