Ready For My ABC Nightline Closeup

Image may contain: 4 people, people sitting
Dee Dee, Diamond Stylz and I recently taped on July 22 an ABC Nightline episode in which we talked about the violence affecting Black trans women in Texas and around the country.

The initial part of it was taped while we were in Dallas for our recent BTAC Leadership Institute, and the rest was done when we returned back to Houston.

We were also doing so in the wake of the loss of Denali Stuckey.

As y'all know, anti-trans violence aimed at the Black trans community is a serious issue.   It's past time that we got to have an in depth discussion about it on national television.   

It was also nice to be having that discussion with my H-town homegirls and fellow BTWI board members

Looking forward to seeing the final segment and how it turned out    As for when Nightline airs, it comes on at 11:35 PM CDT.
