Gender Spectrum Rally tomorrow in Bloomington


BLOOMINGTON — B’N Trans – Community and Authentically You are organizing a rally in response to the recent proposed policy that would remove any consideration of transgender issues in the federal government.

The rally will meet at the 600 block of North Main Street in downtown Bloomington and marching south to the McLean County History Museum and then back to the start point by way of Madison Street.

The rally begins at 5:30 on Thursday, Oct. 25. Speakers include Brittany Clinard, founder of B’N Trans – Community, and Tobias Horner, founder of Authentically You. B’N Trans – Community was created in late 2017 as an organization to support individuals who identify as transgender and non-dominant gender and to raise community awareness of issues affecting this population. Authentically You was started in the Chicagoland area in 2016 and is focused on empowering individuals to live their lives authentically.

Partnering organizations include the Prairie Pride Coalition, the Stonewall Democrats of McLean County, ACLU of Illinois and Voices of Reason.

You can RSVP on the Facebook event page.
