Transgender Pride in the Park

In August 1966, a group of transgender women fought back against a police raid at Compton’s Cafeteria in San Francisco. The riot that ensued marks what many believe was the beginning of the transgender equality movement. Although the specific date and many of the details surrounding the riot at Compton’s Cafeteria have been essentially erased from history, Transgender Michigan is seeking to let the bravery of these transwomen live on by educating others about this momentous event and about transgender identity with the organization’s annual celebration of Transgender Pride in the Park from 12-6 p.m. at Donald Red Geary Park at Earle Boulevard and Pinecrest in Ferndale.
This year’s event will be held on Aug. 12 in honor of the 51st anniversary of the riot at Compton’s Cafeteria. Transgender Michigan encourages organizations from all corners of the globe to celebrate Transgender Pride in the Park through educational events and efforts.
