Transgender rights activists march down Las Olas

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Activists marched down Las Olas Boulevard, Friday night, in order to rally for transgender rights.

Members of the Trans and Queer Liberation Now Movement rallied for transgender rights on East Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

This comes after the Trump administration lifted Obama-issued protection for transgender students that allowed them to use school bathrooms and locker rooms based on the gender they identify with.

Miami-Dade and Broward County school officials have said they will keep the protections in place.
