BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER MARCH Fundraiser (London)

Thank you for supporting our GoFundMe, we are aiming to raise funds to ensure the health and safety of all those attending. The funds will also be used to purchase hi-vis for stewards, PPE, hand sanitiser and food and water for all. Public safety is our top priorities - we’d love your support in our efforts towards this. About the March and why we are marching: Our government has brutally attacked trans rights, but this cannot detract from the black lives matter movement. ALL black lives matter, black trans lives need to be valued. Fighting for black lives MUST INCLUDE BLACK TRANS LIVES. The UK governments planned transphobic legislation with disproportionately affect black trans people and black trans women especially. It will make their lives more difficult and more dangerous, as transphobia will now have government support. Black trans women are being murdered at an alarming rate, most recently Dominique Rem’mie Fells and Riah Milton, due to the combined violence of racism and transphobia. 91% of trans people murdered in America in 2019 were black trans women. We cannot embolden transphobia in the UK. Trans lives and black trans lives will be lost because of it. Trans suicides will spike. Trans people will die if this legislation passes. Stand with us for black trans lives. We’re starting the march at Wellington Arch at 2pm and there will be speeches at Downing Street from 3pm. If you have access needs and cannot attend the march, please meet us for the static protest outside Downing Street at 3pm. Supported by LDNBLM and London Trans+ Pride.
