Moni's Thoughts On The 'Trans People Are Sacred' Billboard In Detroit
In a time in which we have a presidential misadministration that is openly hostile to trans people and gleefully being egged on by evilgelicals to be as cruel as possible to our community , this billboard is a timely reminder of our humanity
I also find it interesting this billboard popped us just as the NAACP convention has arrived in town. It's my hope and prayer that some of the expected 10,000 delegates to the NAACP convention not only see this billboard, but ponder the fact that our community's oldest civil rights organization has been way too silent on the violence being aimed at Black trans people.
Trans people are indeed sacred. Our trans kids are even more sacred to us. It's past time you treat us that way.
But to echo what my Texas homegirl Anna Nguyen said when I posted this pic on my Facebook page, I'd just be happy with trans people just being considered human.
And we need that to happen like yesterday
