lagonegirl: Eyricka Morgan, 26, was a black transgender woman….

lagonegirl: Eyricka Morgan, 26, was a black transgender woman. She was a student at Rutgers University in New Jersey. She was an activist.   Transgender women of color experience disproportionate levels of hate violence compared to other members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, facing challenges and struggles that are uniquely framed by the intersecting nature of their marginalized identity framework. Nettles’ friends spoke up against this mistreatment. After Eyricka died, we, her friends, had two options: Speak up or remain silent. As cisgender allies we could choose to do our part to ensure Eyricka’s story was shared, or we could do nothing. But true allies are not absent when they are needed most. http://www.avp.org/storage/documents/ncavp_transhvfactsheet.pdf Many trans women of ...

“I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change…I’m changing the things I cannot accept.” -Angela DavisAll month long, in honor of Black History Month, we will be highlighting influential queer and trans black activists—and taking the opportunity to educate ourselves further in the process.Angela Davis is a queer black woman who became an activist in the 1960s during the Civil Rights Movement as a member of the Communist Party USA and Black Panther Party. She is a radical activist: The term “radical” means, according to Angela Davis, “grasping things at the root.” Her life’s work has become speaking out against white supremacy, sexism, and imperialism around the world, as well as advocating for the dismantling the prison-industrial complex (arguing that our prison ...

How Then, Shall We Live? | A MixtapeEveryone Is Gay’s February Mixtape, “How Then Shall We Live?” honors Black History Month. “Black culture has a history of resisting through music. Whether it was songs sung by enslaved Blacks encoded with messages about freedom, the role of gospel during the civil rights movement, or the current movement’s attraction to singing and dancing as part of our liberation, music has always been at the forefront. Each piece was chosen as a way to connect us back to that history in order that we may move forward. When you listen to it in order, it’s a story of resistance; a guidebook for Black queer folks and our allies to ground us while simultaneously giving us the wings we need ...
