Happy Birthday Kylar!
It's TPOCC founder and Executive Director Kylar Broadus' birthday, and I had to give him a TransGriot birthday shoutout.
It's been a busy, history making year for the brother from Missouri building the Trans Persons of Color Coalition into the national voice for transpeople of color it has become in addition to all the other trailblazing work he has done.
I look forward to my next opportunity to spend some quality time with my fellow red stater at NBJC's Out On The Hill in just a few weeks.
That's your cue people to make your plans to attend the third annual edition of this empowering Washington DC conference.
You get to meet outstanding national African-descended trans and SGL leaders like Kylar and we make the point once again to our inside I-495 politicians and organizational leaders that Black LGBT people are Black people, too.
And yeah, when conservafools aren't attempting to suppress it, we vote.
But back to the birthday shoutout.
Happy birthday Kylar! Thanks to all you do to raise the leadership bar, the visibility of transpeople of color (especially those of us from red states) and help us own our power.
May you have many more birthdays to come and they be happy ones!
