Transgender rights protest

Melina Rayna Svanhild Farley-Barratt, a 39-year-old Gainesville activist, waves a transgender flag during the “Won’t Be Erased!” rally Tuesday afternoon. The Trans Rights Action Committee hosted the event outside Hobby Lobby as a response to President Trump’s statement recently about eliminating the status of transgender and having a person’s sex be determined at birth. The Hobby Lobby was chosen as the location due to its public stance against the LGBTQ+ community.
