PhillyBite magas awardMayor Jim Kenney will present the Philadelphia Magis Award to 22-year-old transgender youth activist from Philadelphia, Giana Graves.

 

Graves has been credited with engaging the community to improve the lives of LGBTQ individuals by working collaboratively to identify strategies and solutions. She is being acknowledged for her efforts for social justice through educating and protecting the rights of transgender individuals. The Latin word magis roughly translates into “the more universal good,” and the City of Philadelphia honor is awarded to a person or an organization that does and achieves more.

Mayor Kenney will present the Philadelphia Magis Award to Graves at the City of Philadelphia’s annual Celebration of Freedom Ceremony hosted by the Office of the City Representative and Independence National Historical Park during the Wawa Welc,ome America festival, on Wednesday, July 4.
