Happy Heavenly Birthday Nikki!
But unfortunately, that's not going to happen because she's now been hanging out with the transcestors for nearly seven months.
She will also have a giant footprint in our trans history books. It was her tenacious and ultimately successful six year fight in the Delgado v. Araguz case that led to the reestablishment of marriage rights for trans Texans.
She even became the first out trans person to be elected as a PTA president in the Lone Star State.
The last conversation I had with Nikki was two weeks before she died. I had actually called to check on her hubby Will to find out what was going on in his life. When she heard Will say my name, she grabbed the phone out of his hands and we ended up talking for the next hour and a half. It was during that call we started the planning for a slumber party at her house once we picked a date that would work for the both of us and everyone she planned to invite to the event.
Before we hung up, she told me 'I love you". I said in response, "Love you too, Diva"
I was glad I got the chance to do that.
Happy heavenly birthday, Nikki.
