Have no idea how to decorate your Thanksgiving table? Problem solved. Open a portal to hell and let whatever crawls out perch itself in your home. Allow it to lay its eggs on your plates. Ignore the screams.

Today is Trans Day of Remembrance. Today is somber. We celebrate and mourn all the trans people we have lost to murder, suicide, hate crimes. Each act of violence enacted against us is a moment we become more resilient towards freedom.

Pretty much any person described as the “first transgender [job/accomplishment/whatever]” isn’t actually the first. We’ve been out here, existing, doing things, etc.

This young man had just made history in Pennsylvania. Tyler James Titus was just elected as Erie City School Director. He is the first elected official in the state of Pennsylvania who is openly transgender!

This thread is important bc of the nuances. Yes 1st Black trans. Not “out”. Was “outed” and “ousted” Also, a nightmare, politically. All your skinfolk ain’t your kinfolk. Still shouldn’t be erased.
