UPDATE: VICTORY! As of 4:27pm Eastern on Tuesday, June 3, Thanks to your efforts and the work of GLAAD and transgender leaders in Chicago, the Chicago Sun Times has apologized for running their anti-trans hate column. WAM!mers generated thousands of tweets and nearly 1000 signatures in under 6 hours to help secure this major win for gender justice in the media.
