We are tired of seeing #sayhername but It’s no secret that people who identify as trans have a harder time surviving in this cruel world, but trans women of color particularly have it rough. Our community should work harder at protecting our sisters. We have to first learn to respect each other and not judge someone based on their circumstances. Sex workers are human and they deserve the same dignity and respect as you and I. Their stories shouldn’t go untold because it doesn’t fit the narrative. Trans peoples lives matter, they have always mattered and we will not stop fighting until the world stops fighting against us.
We love and miss you so much. ETCH was inspired by your stories and we will never stop fighting for the justice you and so many of us deserve.
Since you’ve been gone, we’ve seen a little progress but there is still so much more to do.
It wasn’t until your untimely deaths that we realized North Carolina is one of the deadliest states for people who identify as Trans.
North Carolina is just as much ours as it is anybody else. You shouldn’t have had to lose your lives because of someone’s insecurities and hate.
Although your gone, your Legacy will live on. Through the past memories, and now Forever
Rest in Paradise Ladies
