The D.C. office of Human Rights just launched their first Transgender and Gender Identity Respect Campaign this past Thursday. There will be ads featuring members of the transgender community across bus stops all over DC.

The purpose of this initiative is draw attention to the anti-trans violence and discrimination in the city and to bring awareness about the trans community.

Mayor Vincent Gray had this to say about the campaign.

"This district is committed to ensuring that all people are protected from discrimination, and that includes discrimination against the transgender and gender-non-conforming communities. This landmark campaign from the Office of Human Rights is an important piece of a larger effort by my administration to ensure all residents have equal access to employment, housing and public services and accommodations regardless of gender identity or expression."

Photos of the ads are after the break.
