Summit On Hate at RMC

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Members of the community gathered at Rocky Mountain College Saturday to show support for the Billings trans-gender population.

This was Not In Our Town's fourth annual Summit On Hate. The purpose of today's event was to help inform the community of the struggles trans-gender individuals face.

The event lasted from 1 to 5 PM, with a trans-gender day of remembrance celebration at 6:30, followed by a potluck.

"There is a trans community in Billings, and people don't know about it. Also because those people need other people to understand who they are, so that they can be treated properly, accepted, so people know, because people don't know what to do with a trans person a lot of times," said organizer, Marty Ortiz.

Not In Our Town organizers say their vision is to create an informed community free of hatred.
