As 2SLGBTQIA+ people we must remember that we owe it ALL to Black transgender women like Marsha P Johnson. Marsha fought on the front lines of protests against oppressive policing, she helped found one of Americas first safe spaces for transgender and homeless youth, she advocated tirelessly for sex workers, prisoners and people with HIV/AIDS. Her activism, power and fight was the impetus for the Stonewall Uprising, sparking the entire Gay Revolution.
Being 2SLGBTQIA+ doesn’t absolve anyone of their racism. We need to own our ignorance and recognize our privilege. We need to listen, learn, advocate and do better. Black lesbian lives matter. Black gay lives matter. Black bisexual lives matter. Black trans lives matter. Black queer lives matter. Black lives matter.
