The staff of the Mount Vernon Triangle CID asked me to post this notice:
The Back Street Girls to Sophisticated Ladies
Many of the men and women, and those in between, who used to be on the stroll at 5th and K Street are now in housing and receiving treatment. As a tribute to their transformation, Leslie Perkins is holding a Trans Fashion Show on Sunday, May 1st from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at St. Martin’s Catholic Church – “The Back Street Girls to Sophisticated Ladies.” The event is a fundraiser, and tickets are $20 at the door. Come support the progress this community has made and watch them transform on the runway. To learn more, call Leslie Perkins at (202) 705-8969 or visit T.H.E. at 1414 North Capitol Street, NW.
