RI Pride has announced that TGI Network, along with SAGE RI and Youth Pride Inc, will be an honorary marshal at this year's RI Pride Festival! We are honored to be given this distinction. As the only trans-lead organization in the state, focused on supporting and empowering our local transgender, gender-variant, and intersex communities, it is an honor to help lead the celebration this year. There is no doubt that we have come quite a ways in our community, when a group of trans people and their allies are not only out of the shadows and into the light, but are given a position of honor. 

At the same time, we are reminded that Pride is a celebration of struggle and triumph. It is a time to rekindle our spirit of community action and band together for greater change. It is easy to be complacent in the warmth of our victories, but there is a great deal of work still to be done. We at TGI Network will consider this honor a call to further action. 

We hope that you'll join us on June 16th as we celebrate and come together with community. We hope that you'll march with us in support of all of the trans people who are not able to be out. And we hope that you'll continue to work with us to continue to make this world safer for all.
