The recent murders of our trans sisters in Louisiana (Monroe and New Orleans) and Illinois (Chicago) has left us feeling incredibly despondent. The current political discourse surrounding trans folks and bathroom bills has been disturbing, to say the least, but we think it is extremely important to remember that black trans women are being murdered at an alarming rate (and within our own communities). We think that it is constantly important to reiterate that you do not believe in black liberation if you do not believe that all black people should be liberated.
We think that Raquel Willis says it best.
