News, opinions, commentary, history and a little creative writing from a proud African-American transwoman about the world around her.
I'm no fan of HRC but I do love Bond for standing up. Side note: It's so funny how now a days there is all this talk about the homophobia of the Black community. However, HISTORY shows that often LGBT people made community in the bars and night clubs knee-deep in Black neighborhoods. And it's also funny how so many of the queer hot spots in the major cities came from and are still connected to slowly gentrified poor communities of color
JoJo,Glad to see ya sis! I also love Julian Bond for CONSISTENTLY saying this and also pointing out that he late Coretta Scott King also supported GLBT rights. You are so right about that. I used to go from time to time to a little after hours GLBT spot on Elgin.
