ST. LOUIS - Dozens gathered beneath the Grove sign at the corner of Manchester and Sarah today to participate in The Metro Trans Umbrella Group's first "Love Conquers All" campaign.
The brainchild of MTUG Secretary Rae Larson, the action was designed to showcase the love the transgender community and its allies have to offer by giving out hugs. The embraces were photographed and posted to social media with a quote from participants completing the following sentence: "Love conquers ______." 
According to Larson, the campaign came about after a recent debate on social media over Facebook posts that were perceived as insensitive to the transgender community. 
"Anger just brings more anger," said Larson. "We thought this was a better way to channel the energy around love and community."
