“All Lives Matter” activists call to “Kill All Transgenders” at Pittsburgh protest

433

The local BLM protest in Pittsburgh, held over the weekend in front of the Shaler Area Middle School, numbered about 150 people. A few hours later, a couple of dozen counter-protesters organized on the opposite side of the street, accompanying their rally with shouts of "Back the Blue" and "Kill transgenders".

“Kill transgenders, kill transgenders,” one of the pro-police protesters shouts into a megaphone. Shortly after this, the same protester can be heard shouting “you’re a [f**t]” repeatedly.

 

According to Pittsburgh City Paper, the organizers of the BLM protest said that among them were two representatives of sexual minorities.

“A lot of people said in the group that it hurt them,” says Christopher Chirdon, who lives in Shaler and both attended and helped organize the event.
