Title

Coll. 051: Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition Collection

Description

The Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) was formed in 2001. The organization focused initial efforts on adding a gender identity clause into the City of Boston’s non-discrimination ordinance in 2002. The group expanded to include a satellite chapter in Western Massachusetts that pushed for a similar clause in the City of Northampton. While the major focus of MTPC is political, the group and group members participated in conferences, advocacy and community projects, and co-founder Gunner Scott was elected the Boston Pride Parade Marshall in 2003. The group still exists at present.
