TG pioneer Claire Skiffington dies
San Francisco transgender pioneer Claire Leigh Skiffington died June11 at Pioneer House, a retirement facility in Sacramento, following a lengthy struggle with cancer. She was 62.
The former health department employee was an early advocate of the city providing health benefits for its transgender workers, something that finally happened in 2001 when such legislation was approved by the Board of Supervisors.
Ms. Skiffington had been ill for quite some time, and had moved to Pioneer House, which has a skilled nursing facility. While she was well cared for at the facility, according to family members, Ms. Skiffington' s death has already brought calls for an investigation of the Ombudsman Services of Northern California for the discriminatory treatment one of its employees allegedly exhibited toward Ms.Skiffington in the final hours of her life.

Trans March kicks off Pride weekend
An anonymous e-mail came to the transgender community's attention in March 2004, which expressed the need for a trans march. The e-mail coincided with the first trial in the murder of East Bay transgender teenager Gwen Araujo, and helped launch the largest transgender event of its kind.

Gender Activists Vent Frustrations
With less than one day left in the Legislature's current calendar as Gay City News goes to press, gender rights activists are voicing discontent that five years after passage of a state civil rights law protecting gay and lesbian New Yorkers, a similar measure for transgendered, transsexual, and other gender-variant people has not even been approved in the heavily Democratic Assembly.
TransJustice was out in full force at the Pride march held by Gays and Lesbians of Bushwick Empowered, or GLOBE, this past Saturday in Brooklyn.
