What she said

helen_sunrise_nov-2011-300x300“So if people ever wonder why I get angry at why we haven’t made the world more trans friendly yesterday, this is why.

“Murder is rarely about the individual who does the killing. It’s about the systemtic tranphobic discrimination all of these individuals experienced before they died. It’s about how hard it can be to get a job, to feel connected and loved, to use a public bathroom, to be asked, time after time, who you ‘really’ are.

“For every one of them, there is a me mourning – a lover, a friend, a mom, a dad. These are the people we love. Please help us make the world safer for them.”
