A protest walk of the trans flag in Sitges
On June 24, we had the great privilege of receiving the mega trans flag that has gone around Spain, passing through municipalities and large capitals, receiving the support of people and institutions, as a sign of commitment to the trans law and massive support for approval in Congress, which has finally happened.
It was the protest action #ExigimosLaIguadTrans, a state campaign in favor of trans rights organized by the State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Trans and Bisexuals (FELGTB), Fundación Triángulo y Chrysallis, Asociación de Familias de Minores Trans *, to promote the citizen mobilization in favor of trans rights, especially gender self-determination.
Within the framework of this campaign, a trans flag crossed Spain to claim equal rights for trans people. It was received in different cities in a series of events and rallies in the street to symbolize the arrival of legal equality for the most vulnerable part of the LGTBIQ + collective.
The flag arrived on Thursday, June 24, at the Pink Triangle, the Monument against LGTBIQ + phobia, in which it was presented to the citizens who received it in a rally called by the three organizing entities of the campaign at 11.00 in the same place.
Later, at 12:00 hours, the transfer of the flag displayed along the Paseo Marítimo in the direction of the Sitges Town Hall began, going up the stairs of the Church, where the LGTBIQ + Colors Sitges Link association, El Punt R and L’Esquerda invited local authorities to sign the trans flag in an institutional act as a sign of their commitment and support in favor of trans equality. The event was attended by Aurora Carbonell, mayor of Sitges, and Julia Vigó, councilor for equality.
