Just in time for Trans Pride L.A., Liberty Hill Foundation has partnered with Gender Justice LA in an effort to uplift and acknowledge the lives of all Trans people, and honor the ones we’ve lost along the way in the fight for acceptance and equality.

“How to be a Trans Ally” is a video written and performed by Evolve Benton aka Emotions the Poet.  If you’ve found yourself wondering how you could be a valuable ally to Trans people, Emotions the Poet offers context and straightforward ways to be part of the solution.

Trans Pride L.A. is a two day event celebrating the vibrancy and uniqueness of Los Angeles' trans and genderqueer community. The event is hosted by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and takes place on Friday night, June 19 and Saturday, June 20. 

Gender Justice L.A. is one of more than 50 grassroots social justice organizations supported by Liberty Hill. These groups work lasting policy changes to advance economic, racial, LGBTQ and environmental justice.
