On July 26, 2017, hours after President Donald Trump tweeted his plan to ban transgender people to serve in any military, a protest was organized by members of the LGBTQI community in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood. At the protest’s scheduled 6 p.m. start time, there were about 200 people in front of the Harvey Milk Plaza on the corner of Market and Castro Streets. By 6:30 p.m. that number grew to close to 350 people. San Francisco police officers were out in force and one officer stated they expected as many as 800 people to show up.
