Dozens of transgender activists shut down the intersection of 3rd Street and La Cienega Boulevard outside the Beverly Center for about half an hour Friday evening.
The protest, called Spring into Love, was organized by advocacy groups to protest violence against transgender people. Since June, at least four transgender women have been killed in violent incidents in Southern California.
At the protest, horns blared and a police helicopter circled overhead. Protesters marched into the center of the intersection, shouting “Trans lives matter!” Some protesters wearing fake blood lay down in the center of the road.
Los Angetes police officers eventually ordered the protesters from the street. The protesters complied, moving to the sidewalks where the rally continued. There did not appear to be any arrests.
