"Hi, Chrissy! That was a very touching post to me since I've never had any close guy friends to hang out with. Not that I didn't know any guys.I did. But I didn't get close to them because a lot were jocks and I never met a football…"
I tell people I have bad eyes and bad ears but that doesn't stop me from doing what I damn well want!
So I present seminars at events like SCC, IFGE, the Methodist Reconciling Ministries Network Convocations, Dignity USA, and the newest seminar will be at Call to Action, a convention of progressive Catholics in Milwaukee this November. And I often try to incorporate the black side of things because most people, seeing folks like Jenny Bolyn or Julia Serano, will come away with the impression that most trans people are white, wealthy, and well connected.
And that's not true.
There ARE black trans people who are struggling to be heard. Even if we're often excluded as we were from the meeting at the White House that celebrated 40 yrs of the Stonwell riots.
It's a constant struggle. But a very necessary one.
