2013 Rally for Transgender Equality 21189

See: www.facebook.com/events/501459483222848/

 

A rally in Washington, DC in support of the equal health and livelihood of trans people, that included basic information about trans health issues and stories of denied / inappropriate care, as well as hope for the future

 

Nico Quintana shared his own story: Of binding his chest for 10 years, saving up to pay out of pocket for a chest surgery at an outpatient medical center far from DC, given 45 minutes of aftercare, returning home with a life threatening chest infection, being asked at the hospital "are you a man, woman, or what?" before care was delivered.
