Delaware Stonewall PAC mourns transgender icon

Transgender

Delaware Stonewall PAC mourns the passing of Transgender Activist Barbra “Babs” Casbar Siperstein, who was honored by Delaware Stonewall Democrats in 2010.

“Babs” was the first transgender member of the Democratic National Committee, was a founding member of Garden State Equality, and served as President of NJ Stonewall Democrats.  In 2009 she was named by the Gay and Lesbian Task Force as one of the 40 Trans Heroes.

As a tireless advocate for transgender rights she saw “the Babs Saperstein Act” become law in New Jersey.  That law allows people to change their birth certificate to reflect their gender identity without undergoing sex change.
