On this day of action, we celebrate @raquel_willis, Black queer transgender activist, writer and media maven with the @translawcenter. Here is a portion of her powerful speech at the #WomensMarch: "Trans women of color like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera lit the fire on the LGBTQIA Right Movement but were quickly pushed aside.
They share a common thread with another revolutionary woman I look up to - Sojourner Truth… Just like her Black women, other women of color, trans women, queer women and many others - are still asking - AIN’T I A WOMAN?!" #ProtectTransWomen@getEqual
Today was a National Day of Action to #ProtectTransWomen. Here model and activist, #GeenaRocero, talks about #trans rights and being proud of her identity. Trans women of color are being murdered at an alarming rate and need to be protected. @geenarocero ✊🏽✊🏿✊🏻
Om en transtjej är på din fest, prata INTE om hur "fab" och "fierce" hon är. Hon är inte en stereotyp bög i en amerikansk high-schoolfilm, hon är bara en en tjej på din fest. Något du istället BORDE göra är att fråga hur hon kommer hem efter festen. Åker hon själv? Kan någon följa med henne på vägen osv. Det finns inget viktigare än hennes säkerhet.
This child gave me a surprise 31st birthday gift: a message stating that for a school art project challenge, she created a poster that said Too Awesome To Be Binary 👏🏽 They also created an IG account for their gender non-conforming fox (@buddyfox1). This child, like most children (not gonna lie, some 👶🏻 children make me more afraid) gave me the gift of hope for a more gender chill future 💖 (cc: @sarahdashji) ps. If you'd like, you can give me a bday gift! Here's how: 1. If you're around a baby, be more chill with the gendering of them 💜 2. Make a donation to Chicago Black Trans & Gender Non-Conforming (BTGNC) Collective today for the #ProtectTransWomen day of action that @forthepeoplechi is helping to support over at paypal.me/BraveSpaceAlliance ✊🏽link in bio
We are a country made strong by the tolerance and acceptance of all races, sexualities, and religions. I do not believe our society as a whole has taken steps backwards in recent years. We are always improving, things are continuing to get better, but intolerance and hate has gained a new voice. As a country we will overcome the opposition, but we must continue to resist.
