Quick Hit: Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition Launches “I AM: Trans People Speak” Campaign

As Massachusetts’ gender identity and expression nondiscrimination bill makes its way through the state legislature, the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition ramps up public education efforts with this multi-media campaign “I AM: Trans People Speak.” Today, nearly 300 people descended on Boston to lobby for the bill.
