51 years ago in August 1966, trans women and drag queens fought against police brutality, oppression, and discrimination in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco, when staff at their local hangout started calling the cops on them for simply presenting as themselves. The riots at Gene Compton’s cafeteria were amongst the first of their kind, sparking the fight for trans rights 3 years before Stonewall.

Take a trip back to Trans March earlier this year and march with us in full 360° (oooh!) to the intersection where it all took place, and when the area was named the first transgender district in the country!
