LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — During a do-or-die World Series Game 5 at Dodger Stadium, fans unfurled a large banner reading “Trans People Deserve To Live”.

The statement was emblazoned on the Transgender Pride Flag, colored blue, pink and white. (The flag, designed by an Arizona trans woman, made its debut in 2000 at a pride parade in Phoenix.)

One report indicated the protest was planned by members of the TransLatin@ Coalition, a Los Angeles-based activist organization that advocates for the rights of transgender Latinx people. It’s unclear whether the flag was removed by the activists who brought it or by stadium security, and FOX’s television broadcast did not show either the flag or its removal.

Supporters of transgender rights have been galvanized in recent days after reports the Trump administration is planning to roll back Obama-era protections for trans people and to legally define gender as an immutable, biological trait.

  2. they don’t have the right to push it down our throat

    1. Yes, don’t push your right to life down my throat. How dare people different than me live! HOW DARE!

    2. With all due respect “Jerry” absolutely nobody is asking to shove anything down your throat. As it stands people are granted some protections to live as the person they feel they truly are–do you really support taking that away from a group of folks who already face so many difficulties feeling accepted in today’s society?
