Supporters of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) unfurled a 21,000-foot transgender Pride flag at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Monday to “raise awareness of the efforts of the Trump administration to erase the right of 1.4 million transgender adults to jobs, health care, education, and housing,” the group said in a statement.
