What’s Current: Trans activist group to host ‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ at Supreme Court in DC

  • The Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) is planning to host a “Trans Day of Vengeance” in Washington, DC on April 1. TRAN is run by three co-founders, one of whom is a former staffer for the Virginia Democrats. Bo Belotti, the national recruitment director, helped the Virginia chapter of the group host a “dance party fundraiser benefiting firearm/self-defense training for trans-Virginians.” Belotti worked as a fellow for Del. Elizabeth Guzman and as a legislative aide for Del. Joshua Cole, and helped draft HB 145, which required the state to create implement gender identity policies in public schools. Twitter has removed thousands of tweets showing the poster promoting the event, which reads, “Wear a mask and bring a buddy.”
  • Josselyn Berry, press secretary for Arizona governor Katie Hobbs, has resigned after tweeting a GIF of actress Gena Rowlands in a scene from the 1980 movie, Gloria, pointing two handguns beneath the text, “Us when we see transphobes.” Arizona Republicans accused Berry of inciting violence and called on Hobbs, a Democrat, to fire her. Earlier in the day she had tweeted, “If you work in the progressive community and are transphobic, you’re not progressive.” Twitter removed the image and Berry locked down her account.
