Yesterday, hundreds upon hundreds of people gathered in Dolores Park for the 11th annual Trans March. This is a historic year for Trans March. Before the gathered celebrants marched downtown to commemorate famed transgender performer Vicki Marlane with a stretch of Turk Street, we talked to some  in the crowd about why they came to Dolores and what the Trans March meant to them.
