TDOR 2016

I will be attending TDOR services on November 22nd at the Sage Center here. I will be reciting a poem at the closing. It's been a tough year for transgender people with 24 reported murders of transgender women (most women of color). Counter that with the many suicides and you have a picture of what transgender people are up against. Several people committed suicide after Donald Trump won the election.

There have also been some positive things that have happened, one been recognized by President Obama. It's important for me to attend TDOR because it's a chance to show love, support, and to educate which is till needed. I pray that people will ask questions about what we are about and about our lives.
