This Trans Awareness Week has been quite different to what we're used to. With events happening around the world, broadcast to a global community online, the messages of support have been amplified like never before.
It's a sad truth however, that there are still too many voices being silenced. Too many people are still unable to speak out and for real reasons. The system transphobia that still exists in this day and age is destroying lives. Thats why we come together. Thats why we do this.
As a mark of respect on Trans Day of Remembrance, both I and T&Coffee will be observing a social media blackout for most of the day. However, I want to share what TDoR means to me. Why I feel like one of the lucky ones and why Transphobia has to stop. Right Now. Forever.
