Demonstrators gathered at Mission Plaza in San Luis Obispo Friday afternoon for a protest in support of Black Lives Matter.
According to a social media post, the gathering was described as a memorial demonstration in honor of Marsha P. Johnson.
Johnson was a Black transgender woman who was a central figure in New York City's gay liberation movement. She died in 1992 under what many believe to be suspicious circumstances.
The demonstration started at about 3 p.m. and included a march through downtown San Luis Obispo. It wrapped up in front of the county courthouse shortly after 4:30 p.m.
