An "emergency rally" is planned at the Stonewall Inn, the historic "birthplace of the modern Gay Rights movement" tonight.
The Facebook event hosted by Equality NY reads: "Emergency rally to make it clear that we will fight to keep protections for Trans and gender non-conforming people and students. The Trump-Pence Administation [sic] has rescinded important protections for trans students in schools. Let them know we will be heard, we will protect our TGNC community and we will fight for safe education for all. #ProtectTransKids"
On Wednesday, President Trump rescinded protections for those in the transgender community and reversed former President Obama's policy, Title IX, which protects the right of transgender students to use restrooms and locker rooms that match their gender.
Protests were held Wednesday evening in Washington D.C.
