“Today, Nov. 20th is Trans Day of Remembrance. Find a vigil in your city and show up for trans lives. Hire, support, uplift and resource Black trans women and femmes! Art by the amazing @micahbazant •••⠀ #Repost @micahbazant⠀
As we grieve our siblings killed by anti-trans violence, lets pledge to support trans lives with our talents, our money, and our passion. Lets hire, amplify and support Black trans women and femmes.⠀
May next year be a year when we have no one to grieve on this day.⠀
This is part of an image created in 2014 with @audrelordeproject & @alokvmenon for #TDOR. We wanted to show trans femmes of different generations and gender expressions loving + resisting together. 💓✨🔥.⠀
