I was at a conference last weekend with 800+ progressives folks from across Pennsylvania. I repeatedly tweeted about the disappearance of Andre Gray, asking my colleagues to share the information. About five did. Then I stood up during the LGBTQ panel to speak his name and ask again for acknowledgement. No one shared it.
Another woman stood up during a session on Ferguson and demanded acknowledgement that queer women of color have been in the forefront of organizing around #blacklivesmatter. I don’t think many people took her up on that. I think they thought it was a request rather than a statement of fact.
