We Will Not Be Forced Back into the Closet: A Statement from the KC Trans Community

As the murder rate against trans people reaches an all-time high, a hate group infamous for inciting violence on campuses nationwide hosted a rally against trans people at the University of Missouri – Kansas City on Thursday, April 11, 2019. This was attended by off-campus reactionaries, some even calling for the eradication of trans people.

Many of us were pepper sprayed, kicked and punched by the police.
