Transphobia At The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute
Birmingham Civil Rights Institute on Sunday for a tour.
When he was asked why, he tried to use his alleged status as a godchild of the late civil rights warrior Rosa Parks as a human shield for his problematic behavior.
Sinseriti Starr asked to see a BCRI manager to express her dissatisfaction with how their group was treated, and she and the TAKE group was approached by an all cis male security staff, disrespectfully told no manager was on duty and to immediately leave the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute building.
And nope, Moni ain't happy hearing about that.
One thing they are going to learn at BCRI is to not piss off and disrespect my Magic City family
One thing they also need to learn is that Black trans people are Black people. We didn't forfeit our Black Cards or Blackness when we transitioned, and that Civil Rights Movement history is history we are immensely proud of.
We are also perusing that history in order to replicate the success of the African American Civil Rights movement into the trans rights one.
Another lesson they will get taught and hopefully learn is that you will treat Black trans people with the same dignity and respect you would demand for yourself,
And you will learn that lesson starting today.
