I posted here about the recent death of one of our trans community pioneers in Linda Phillips, who along with her amazing spouse Cynthia ran the San Antonio area based group the Boulton and Park Society and the Texas T Party Convention.
The San Antonio based Texas T Party was the largest trans themed convention in the world from 1988 until the mid 90’s.
Cynthia Phillips contacted me this morning, and wanted me to let you TransGriot readers know that the date, time and location for Linda’s Celebration of Life Service has been set.
It will be held starting at 1 PM on October 15, 2016 at the Metropolitan Community Church San Antonio. The address of the church is 611 E. Myrtle St. in San Antonio, TX.
If you are in the San Antonio area or just wish to come and pay your respects on that day to one of our trans community pioneers here in Texas and nationally, I urge you to do so.
In lieu of flowers, donations are asked for the Bulverde Area Humane Society, P. O. Box 50, Bulverde, TX 78163 (which she helped build); or Transgender Education Network of Texas, 102 Wonder World Dr. #304-174, San Marcos, TX 78666; or The Center-Pride Center San Antonio, 1002 N.
