Philadelphia’s transgender community members and supporters rallied Saturday afternoon in LOVE Park and then marched down Broad Street, packing more than a block, chanting for justice, carrying signs — “Trans is beautiful” and “Trans women are women” and “Trans men are men, period” — in a bid to shine a light on violence and discrimination.

The march, held annually since 2011, has taken on a particular urgency this year in the wake of the death of Shantee Tucker, 30, an African American trans woman who was gunned down Sept. 5 on Old York Road near Hunting Park.
