THREAD : LES TRANSSEXUELS ET TRANSGENRES EXISTENT-ILS VRAIMENT ?
On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans), qui signifie en latin “de l’autre côté”, indique un changement, un passage d’un sexe à un autre ou d’un genre à un autre.

This #PrideMonth please remember that if your Pride event isn’t accessible, affordable, & inviting to trans people, non-binary folks & people of color then it’s not for the entire LBGTQIA community.
This means wheelchair accessibility. This means ASL interpreters. This means NO COPS. This means gender neutral restrooms. This means hosts who don’t make racist, sexist, ableist, transphobic, fatphobic or classist jokes.
Vet your venue. Vet your people. Make Pride great for all of us. Except straight people. Pride isn’t for straight people. (I mean, you can come I guess, but I’m not interested in making Pride comfortable for heteros. Don’t @ me on this)

MONSTER THREAD: US President Donald Trump’s transgender military ban went into force at the start of this month. It is predicated on a number of false premises, but chiefly: that trans servicepeople are a burden to the US military; and that trans identities are illegitimate. 1/
I’d like to deal with both of these propositions, as well as why this development should be alarming for anyone — even those who have taken a more ambivalent stance because they don’t support what Eisenhower once called the ‘military-industrial complex.’ 2/
First, to the idea of a burden. I’m not going to deal too much with the actual costs, though Trump has made much of the fact that trans people are ‘too expensive’ for the Pentagon. This he even claimed in his first tweets proposing the ban. 3/

Twitter this weekend has me in so many thoughts and feelings. Part of resisting patriarchy is also resisting and interrogating homophobia and transphobia. #TransIsBeautiful. If you are attracted to trans folks, that's beautiful. No need to be ashamed of it or shame others for it
Cis men if someone thinks you're gay because you may have something feminine about you (and folks still conflate sexual orientation and gender expression) embrace it especially if you're an artist. We artists cannot be in a space where we are censoring our expression because
When we censor one form of self expression it dims all of our artistic flow. If we can stop imposing and enforcing rigid gendered expectations onto everyone especially cis straight identified men and equating those expectations with sexual orientation and manhood we can begin

Please support @TransEquality, which I sit on the board of, as they fight this latest affront to human rights. Liz stands in front of a bog wearing a light blue jacket. she is wearing purple lipstick and slightly smiling.
This morning I considering leaving the hotel without makeup, because I wasn't meeting clients or filming today. But I made a snap decision to put on femme battle armor after the news.

We must not give up the fight. But in the face of this affront on my existence and the existence of my community I choose love not fear. We exist and always have.

Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence nyti.ms/2R9W1jB
In indigenous cultures all over the world gender existed beyond the binary and folks who we would call trans today held sacred places in those cultures. Western colonialism drove those trans folks to the margins but we have always been here. Marginalizing trans folks is another
Example of the brutality of colonialism. This latest administration effort to legislate trans folks out of existence is yet another example of why the fight for gender equity must be intersectional and necessarily must include trans folks. Trans folks need everyone to stand with
