“MTPC isn’t about one person, or even one type of person … it’s about the trans community, and about people who support the basic notion that no one should face discrimination or mistreatment on the basis of their gender identity or expression.” – Maxwell Ng, MTPC Steering Committee Vice-Chair
With that in mind, Maxwell and the MTPC team debuted new MTPC buttons and a social media campaign this weekend at Boston Pride: #WeAreMTPC. We took dozens of photos with MTPC community members, allies, families, friends, and even pets, all featuring the phrase “We Are MTPC.” You can view all the photos on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Do you want to participate? You can contact MTPC about buying a “We Are MTPC” button pack of 2 buttons for $3. Each pack comes with a button that says “We Are Trans: We Are MTPC” and one other button (either “We Are Allies” or “We Are Parents”). Better yet, get both packs!
This weekend, we’ll be at North Shore Pride taking more #WeAreMTPC photos. Can’t make it? You can take your own photo and send it to us! Click here to print out a #WeAreMTPC sign, fill it in, and post it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Tumblr! Don’t forget to tag your photo with #WeAreMTPC! Don’t live on the North Shore? We’ll be coming to your community this summer. Check back with us about events in Springfield, Lowell, Worcestor, Brockton, and Amherst.
We are all a part of MTPC – as trans people, allies, parents, and beyond! Join the movement! Tell everyone #WeAreMTPC!
