Thank you to everyone that came out to MTPC’s Lawyers for Transgender Rights Event last week. We were so thrilled that Speaker DeLeo could join us, accept our 2012 Transgender Ally Award, and speak to our guests.
From the Edge article about the event:
“If you had said to me, 22 years ago, when I was first elected to the Legislature, that Bob DeLeo would be up here accepting the Transgender Ally Award, I would’ve said ’you’re out of your mind,’” said DeLeo immediately after he accepted the award. “Now, I sort of feel good about myself because I have evolved. I’ve learned quite a bit. There were many times when I wanted to say ’I give up. There’s no way I can do it,’”
Please check out the rest of the article.
Here are some other great photos from the event taken by Trevor Wright and Alex Coleman.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Lawyers Transgender Rights Event in 2013!
