McCann Pride Portrait Series with Mel Senecal
What is your favorite political milestone since Stonewall?
The removal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
How many times have you been to Stonewall?
Too many to count.
Within the LGBTQIA+ community, who do you think needs our support the most right now? How can we help?
Trans women, especially trans women of color. We can help by fighting for their equal rights and protections under federal law. If you’re interested in joining the fight, the New York Transgender Advocacy Group focuses on several pieces of key legislation aimed at protecting the TGNC/NB community. NYTAG and its coalition make trips to Albany, NY and Washington, DC multiple times a year to lobby for gender inclusive anti-discrimination laws and policies.
