Trans People Will Not Be Erased
According to a memo obtained by the New York Times, the Trump administration is reportedly seeking to narrowly define gender as strictly biological and unchangeable, based by the genitalia at birth.
PFLAG Richmond and the National Organization believe that this is part of a systematic effort to deny protection to transgender and gender-fluid individuals and we wholeheartedly oppose this measure. We stand with our transgender loved ones and all the members of the transgender community.
"Black and Bold" Awards
Diversity Richmond's third annual "Black and Bold" Awards, held on February 15 at Virginia Union University, celebrated nine individuals who have worked tirelessly on behalf of Central Virginia's black LGBTQ community. This ceremony was part of a month-long series of events sponsored by Diversity Richmond to honor Richmond's black LGBTQ citizens and to highlight their particular challenges. These events were held during Black History Month to remind us that "black history is American history" and "black history is also "black LGTBQ history".
Support Your Transgender Child
Having a child come out as transgender is a big adjustment for all family members. Support your child by educating yourself, using their desired name and pronoun, and following their lead. Most important, tell them that you've got their back and that you love them just the way they are.
