CBS NEWS October 29, 2018

LOS ANGELES -- During do-or-die World Series Game 5 at Dodger Stadium, fans unfurled a large banner reading "Trans People Deserve To Live," reports CBS Los Angeles. The statement was emblazoned on the Transgender Pride Flag, colored blue, pink and white.

The flag, designed by an Arizona trans woman, made its debut in 2000 at a pride parade in Phoenix.

The website Into reports the protest was planned by members of the TransLatin@ Coalition, a Los Angeles-based activist organization that advocates for the rights of transgender Latinx people. Latinx is a gender-neutral term. 

The flag was eventually removed. It was unclear whether it was taken down by the activists who brought it or by stadium security, and FOX's television broadcast didn't show either the flag or its removal.

. . . FOX's television broadcast didn't show either the flag or its removal.

Well, that's Fox for ya!  Trans folks don't exist on Fox News except as an object of ridicule or as a menace to society.
