Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined local lawmakers in announcing the creation of a Transgender Advisory Council Tuesday.

“Today, the City of Los Angeles sends a clear message to transgender Angelenos: your voices matter and your experiences count,” the mayor said in a press conference. “The nine members of our Transgender Advisory Council will bring a new and important perspective to City Hall that will help empower trans Angelenos to lead stigma-free, productive, and meaningful lives.”
