We remember and honor the black and brown transgender women who led the events at Stonewall 51 years ago which began the modern day LGBTQ rights movement and today we stand in solidarity with the activists working towards a more just and equal future free of police brutality. #blacklivesmatter

“Without community, there is no liberation…but community must not mean a shedding of our differences, nor the pathetic pretense that these differences do not exist.”
- Audre Lorde

51 years ago Black trans women fought back against police brutality.

Just last week Tony McDade, a Black trans man, was killed by police in Florida. Black and Brown trans women routinely face harassment and violence from law enforcement.

Pride has always been — and will always be — protest.

Still funding anti gay causes, now louder and prouder about it than ever before. Please make the choice, and do not support Chik Fil A. I know, their food is tasty and easy to get at food court. But the cost is too high. Your money goes to hate groups. Your money pays for demonstrations against LGBTQ equality. Your sandwiches and nuggets and lemondae are buying legislation against LGBT people, against me and my family. Please please stop buying hate. "In a new interview with Baptist Press, Cathy puts on the record what critics say his company's actions have indicated for years. "Well, guilty as charged," he said in the interview when asked about Chick-fil-A's backing of families led by a man and a woman. A report from LGBT advocacy group Equality Matters concluded that Chick-fil-A donated more than $3 million between 2003 and 2009 to Christian groups that oppose homosexuality. In 2010 alone, the company gave nearly $2 million to such causes, according to the report."
This book is a must-read.
