Last Tuesday, I had the honor of attending a rally for #tbackinblack, a national effort to center the lives of Black trans people especially trans women. As I type, 18 trans women, that we know of, have been killed in 2015 and while we have been screaming Black Lives Matter for months now, these women have been left out. Additionally, they are left out of LGBTQ agenda despite the meteoric rise of Caitlyn Jenner and increased trans visibility. I could go on and on but that will be another blog post for another day.
I did my due diligence and recorded each speech because it is so important to hear from trans people about trans issues.
