SWOP LA Brunch and Transgender Day of Remembrance

24 Nov

Our first brunch was 4 days ago, and I have to say, it was definitely a success!

 

We didn’t have a working camera so we were relying on camera phones – we’ll get better snapshots next time! But I love this picture anyway.

We had a veritable feat with pumpkin muffins, roasted rosemary potatoes, a jalapeño and cheddar frittata, chips with salsa and guacamole, a fruit salad, coffee, juice, and mimosas.

There was a little confusion regarding the TDOR memorial because they switched locations due to weather, but we got there in time to meet some people, distribute some fliers, and hear the reading of the names. It was a solemn event, and it was important for SWOP to be there to show our support and solidarity with the trans community. Many of the names read were sex workers, and we certainly do not intend to only come out for the trans community once a year.

All in all, it was a very positive and inspiring event. I think we’re all starting to get to know each other and build strong foundations for a community, and I have nothing but good feelings about where this is going.
