#FridayFlashback

I'm crying.

I'm listening to @NPR's @MorningEdition report on the internment of #MatthewShepard's ashes.

I'm recalling the candlelight vigil I attended with friends.
The emotional interview I did with Judy Shepard.
The shocking brutality of the killing.
1/
@NPR @MorningEdition I'm thinking of other #LGBT hate crime killings I covered that weren't national headlines.

#SakiaGunn was two weeks shy of her 16th birthday when a man called her a d*ke and when she talked back, stabbed her. She died in the lap of her cousin.

@NPR @MorningEdition #GwenAraujo was a teenager when she was raped and murdered.

#BrandonTeena was in their 20s when they were raped and murdered.

Two young trans/GNC people just trying to live their authentic lives. But men wanted them to follow their birth genitalia instead.

Like Trump.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

Happy #Pride
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
Yet conversion therapy is still legal.
Happy #Pride
I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better. We honor you by making a safer world for lesbians today. Amen.

On #Pride I think of the #lesbian who became my mentor. She propelled me forward into lesbian #feminist writing. #AudreLorde opened a door for me I didn't know existed. I am so grateful she was in my life and left such a legacy for #lesbians.

There was no #LesbianVisibilityDay when I was 16.
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
On #LesbianVisibilityDay I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better and we honor you by making a safer world for lesbians now, today. Amen. 💜
One of America's greatest poets was a #lesbian--#AdrienneRich. When she died March 27, 2012, I wrote this tribute to her, illuminating her work and life.
