🏳️⚧️ Int'l Day for Trans Visibility: Turn your 🤬 to 🌈 - Give with us!
Published on March 31, 2023 by Emily Weltman
🔥Hot Tip: Queer friends/fam are scared, but YOU don't have to BE Trans to care. Or to be scared. Or to be angry. Body autonomy, the right to privacy, or the right to vote have NEVER been guaranteed to all Americans. It was always BAD.
Now it's worse, and for a lot more more people.
492 Anti-trans bills (25 passed; 43 failed)
Roe v Wade overturned
Healthcare clinics closed
Birth Control outlawed
Healthcare coverage kneecapped
Then they added MORE cuts: to vaccine programs, medicaid, SNAP/food assistance, mental healthcare access; ended the child tax credit.
This is why we are still fundraising for Trans Rally & Black Trans Media. We started back in November for Giving Tuesday. There's still time to help add to our collective impact!
Denying trans kids gender affirming care kills kids. Period. Racism & misogynoir make it worse. "More trans people were killed in 2020 than in any year on record; a majority were Black trans women."
This is on top of an existing teen mental health crisis, a pandemic, and global climate and economic crises. You know what should be illegal? That lawmakers are allowed to operate this way in a "democracy."
Continue to speak up.
Call out the B.S.
Call your legislatures.
Have the hard convos and push back on the Boomer fam.
Give your energy, time, and money to make the world better.
Love on people.
Turn the fire, the anger, and the rage to some g.d. rainbows; apathy is a death sentence for everyone.
