Pro-family activism that makes a difference!

Mass. Attorney General to be keynote speaker at fundraiser for radical transgender group

Major Boston law firms also sponsoring event

POSTED: April 2, 2011

Some day no one will believe this actually happened. But it is happening now!

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley will be the keynote speaker for fundraiser for the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC), the most radical and aggressive transgender / cross-dressing lobbying/activist group in the state. The event is this Thursday, April 7 at the Club Café in Boston's South End.

MTPC is the driving force behind the push to pass the Transgender Crimes and Hate Crimes bill, newly re-filed in the Legislature. They are involved with transgender activities across the state, including the infamous transgender parade (Warning: graphic photos) in Northampton, Mass. in 2008, where women who have undergone breast removal marched shirtless.

The MTPC has also been a very active member of the Massachusetts Commission for Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth, which uses taxpayer funds to push transgender programs in the public schools K-12.

"Lawyers for Transgender Rights"

If your aim is to force transgenderism, cross-dressing, and related behaviors into society by force of law, what better group to cultivate (besides politicians) than lawyers?  (Especially if you can get otherwise intelligent lawyers to buy into this lunacy, which is another issue.)  Billed as "Lawyers for Transgender Rights," this event is more than just a huge fundraiser.

As the MTCP's web page announcing the event says:

Lawyers for Transgender Rights is a cocktail reception and silent auction event that brings together lawyers, law students, law firms, legal organizations, bar associations and law schools to network and build support in the legal community for MTPC's important work on behalf of transgender rights. The inaugural event last year drew 250 attendees.

"Lawyers for Transgender Rights is MTPC's biggest fundraiser of the year so it is critical to supporting MTPC's work," said Bri Lacy, co-chair of LTR's Host Committee.

A who's who of the Boston legal community

What is truly frightening is the list of major Boston law firms and legal organizations sponsoring this event. MTCP's web page brags:

The 2011 Lawyers for Transgender Rights Event is sponsored by Bingham McCutchen, WilmerHale, Hirsch Roberts Weinstein, Ropes & Gray, Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge, McDermott Will & Emery, GLAD, Day Pitney, Goodwin Procter, Mintz Levin, Foley Hoag, Harvard Law School, Joan M. Fund, Esq., Greg Price and M. Barusch, Mass. LGBTQ Bar Association, the Law Office of Joyce Kauffman, Ari Kristan & Suzanne Adamczak, Wilson Marino & Bonnevie, Patience Crozier and Jessica Keimowitz, and a number of other organizations and individuals (the full listing is available at

The legal profession has lost its collective mind.

Beyond that, who ever heard of a state's Attorney General to be raising money for a fringe political organization that is trying to radically change our laws?  Needless to say, Martha Coakley has a long record of anti-family activism, much of which we documented HERE during her campaign for US Senate against Scott Brown.

Unfortunately, as we saw last November, the Republican Party had no interest in running anyone against her, and only meagerly supported the Republican candidate, Jim McKenna, who managed to get on the ballot as a write-in. Do we really get the government we deserve?
