Thousands march in San Francisco to promote transgender awareness


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country comes just as San Francisco is preparing to kick off pride weekend.

The pride parade on Sunday is expected to draw a huge crowd, but other festivities are already underway.

In the Mission District Friday, thousands of people marched to promote transgender awareness. The crowd joined the 12th annual San Francisco Trans March from Dolores park to UN Plaza. The mood was boosted by the Supreme Court decision.

While the transgender community was happy about the ruling, some said there are still many challenges ahead.
