LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — For their yearly “Woman of the Year” celebration where each California state Assembly person selects a woman in their district to honor for their role in fighting for equality. For the 2014 honors, three transgender women were selected.
The women selected are San Francisco’s Cecilia Chung, a health commissioner at the city’s public health department and advisor to the Transgender Law Center, Dayna Sinopoli of Monterey Bay, a speaker on trans issues and Navy veteran and Desiree Jade Sol of West Hollywood who is on the city’s Public Safety Commission.
They will be introduced on the state Assembly Floor and a resolution honoring their accomplishments announced.
Congrats to each one of these Transgender Role Models.
