Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Remembrance & Resilience


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

This is Transgender Awareness Week and on Saturday is the Transgender Day of Remembrance, a celebration of the lives of Trans People who died by violence as the result of being Trans.  I am linking the page for GLAAD which is a news organization for the LGBT community.

Many community observances are including the theme of Transgender Resilience in their activities which I personally think is a wonderful point to be made.  We will keep coming on and being in society in spite of our losses.

Thanks for the reminder and the link, @VickySGV.  That this year marks the most horrendous in our long history of being attacked, ridiculed and harassed, its even more important for us to stand tall and say to the world; WE ARE HERE, WE ARE PROUD, AND WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!

Delfina, I was raised in a family of huggers, and I’m not talking about the one arm man hug. I agree with the 20 second rule. When someone is hurting then the longer the better. That being said: Digital Hugs are still from the heart. ❤️ 


To keep with the theme of this thread: My first true trans heartbreak, was 8 almost 9 years ago now. I had developed a close connection and contact with Kaylee Alees Johnson, aka Hopefulkylee on YouTube. We had long conversations about deep down depression, and heartache. She was a true spirit of real high on life, and then down and out. She finally reached a point of no return and chose to leave this world. Her channel is still up in memory of her and the things that moved her. She is loved and missed by more people than she knew.

Thank you @Mmindy for sharing this. I can only imagine how you feel the loss. Just reading what you wrote of what happened & watching some of Kaylee's videos where she was so upbeat makes my heart heavy with sadness.

 

Hugs!

      Another vote for pumps.  They look classy.  Although those boots look fabulous!

      Interesting about period symptoms. I get the backache, the emotional ups and downs and the desire to make a baby for about 2-3 days a month, and on a regular cycle (ie: it is always the same 3 days, give or take a day.) Since my knees hurt virtually every day--relics of an errant and misspent youth--I discounted them. The rest makes sense, though...

      I know we all felt this way from time to time. I know today I just feel like.....

      Thanks so much for the input ladies.  Valerie, the only time I plan on spending outside is the walk from the parking lot to the restaurant, not a long walk, but could be as much as one-hundred yards.  I was leaning towards the pumps to be honest, but these particular boots, with the high-heels, aren't great when I am doing a lot of walking, so I thought this event might be the perfect opportunity to show them off.  I may just wear the boots while driving, bring my pumps along and make the final decision when I get to dinner.

      My father actually got very close to saying the "proud" word as i finished building our home.  It had taken over a year during which i had been almost fanatical.  I desperately tried to get by without a mortgage having sold our first farm and getting out of debt.  I guess i had proved that i was a man.    Hugs,   Charlize

      I did get this from one of my daughters.

      That’s interesting. I wonder how that worked seeing the process of the uterus shedding causes the bleeding. Wild to say the least. (I’m intersex ..had ovaries , although not functional )

      IIRC it was my GYN that said that. With my pushing to get on HRT. She was proud of me.   Kymmie

      Based on the description of your outfit pumps sound like absolutely best fit. However, if you plan on spending any time outside and skirt is long enough boots might be reasonable choice. But yes, the event calls for chic and pumps are IT 😀

      So sorry Bri.   well it’s now the third day.  Talk about.bruises!  I’ve got bruises on top of bruises.  And In places I wouldn’t have expected.  I slept fairly well last night.  I’m really spreading out my pain meds now.    its mostly sitting around right now.   coffee is good this morning at least I can get back to that.  I missed it while in Charleston.   take care stay away from the malls.  Be good to each other.   hugs   Willow
