Woke CA city dubs August ‘Transgender History Month’, honors Compton’s Cafeteria riot

San Francisco and Santa Clara both celebrated “Transgender History Month” beginning in August of this year, throwing money at the political cause and cementing the leftist state of California’s commitment to all things transgender.

San Francisco has laid aside $14 million to address transgender homelessness and for subsidies intended to assist transgender residents in finding homes and employment, according to KRON4. A portion of the funding is earmarked for creating permanent housing for “transitional aged youth” and behavioral health services.

Santa Clara also stepped up its transgender virtue signaling by recognizing “Transgender History Month” in August for the first time this year. It was decided at a City Council meeting on Aug. 16.

The decision honors the anniversary of the Compton’s Cafeteria riot in San Francisco. It was one of the first LGBT-related riots in United States history, preceding the more famous 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City.

“The City of Santa Clara is strengthened by and thrives upon the rich diversity of ethnic, cultural, racial, gender, and sexual identities of its residents, all of which contribute to the vibrant character of our city,” the proclamation posted to the city’s website states.

“The City of Santa Clara joins the efforts to support, acknowledge and advocate for the Transgender community. The City of Santa Clara continues to promote the rights and support the ongoing efforts of LGBTQIA+ and transgender people to eliminate discrimination and violence faced by all individuals; and shed more visibility on transgender advocacy from the past, present, and future,” it continues.

“Transgender History Month honors the 56th anniversary of the Compton’s Cafeteria Riots, which occurred in August 1966 in San Francisco, marking the beginning of transgender activism as one of the first LGBTQ uprisings in United States history, preceding the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City,” the declaration added.

Then comes the promise of fealty to the cause.

“The City of Santa Clara affirms our commitment to stand with transgender individuals who continue to face discrimination, harassment, and barriers to opportunity,” it states.

“We honor transgender individuals and leaders who are continuing the fight for human rights for freedom, equality, dignity, and respect in the ongoing struggle against intolerance, discrimination, and injustice throughout our city and communities,” the proclamation concludes.

California has been going down this woke road for some time now. Back in March, the Palm Springs City Council approved a proposal to give universal basic income to transgender and nonbinary residents beginning sometime over the next year. They would be eligible to receive up to $900 a month free and clear.

The transgender mayor of Palm Springs, Lisa Middleton, told Fox News that transgender Americans “suffer extremely high rates of under unemployment” and face enormous challenges living “full and authentic lives.”

San Francisco Mayor London Breed followed that up by announcing that the City by the Bay will spend $6.5 million to end homelessness for transgender people.

Los Angeles added fuel to the fire, taking the fight for transgenders across the country. In April, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to prohibit state business travel to Florida and Texas over legislation because those states don’t cater to transgenders enough.

The board made a motion accusing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott of launching investigations into the parents of transgender children for possible child abuse. A Democratic Texas judge stopped the alleged investigations. The LA County Board of Supervisors called the purported move by Abbott “harmful” and “cruel.”

The motion also went after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who signed the Parental Rights in Education bill, prohibiting the instruction of sexual education and gender orientation to school children under eight years old.

“Parents’ rights have been increasingly under assault around the nation, but in Florida, we stand up for the rights of parents and the fundamental role they play in the education of their children,” DeSantis declared in a statement after signing the misnomered “Don’t Say Gay” bill into law.

“Parents have every right to be informed about services offered to their child at school, and should be protected from schools using classroom instruction to sexualize their kids as young as 5 years old,” he asserted.
