Transgender-rights rally was merely political shenanigans

Women’s Coalition’s decision not to participate in Wednesday’s rally for transgender rights, organized by Associated Student Government candidate Alex Lurie, is in no way a reflection of our level of support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Of course LGBT issues are something we care strongly about. This year’s Take Back the Night charity works specifically to address the concerns of the LGBT community in Chicago.
