Two protests are taking place across Nashville Friday, rallying for and against transgender surgeries after recent backlash towards Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) pediatric transgender clinic’s gender-affirming practices.
Protesters gathered against transphobia and to protect transgender lives at the War Memorial Plaza in Nashville.
You can hear activists chanting, “Trans rights are human rights” during the protest. The protest led to profanity as many activists expressed how they feel on the matter.
Along with local activists, Tennessee Congressional Candidate Odessa Kelly joins in the counter-protest to Matt Walsh’s “Rally to End Child Mutilation.”
