Fear and ignorance have been exploited to oppress vulnerable groups throughout history, and trans people know this all too well. Our existence is mocked, invalidated and reviled by the dominant forces in mainstream culture, and our livelihoods, safety and survival are imperiled because we are accused of making others uncomfortable. Despots like Trump scapegoat our communities and attempt to erase us from public life. Yet, these actions only strengthen the resolve of trans activists and our allies, including feminist allies, to fight tirelessly for trans liberation. As our stories are heard and we are seen by broader segments of society, greater understanding and inclusion emerge. Today, the courts may be our main recourse to protect us from tyranny, but tomorrow it will be our neighbors, co-workers and even those who may not know us. A better day is coming. 🕯🕊🌷
