Lourdes Hunter last Saturday cut loose a powerful speech during a Washington DC rally attended by over 200 people organized to call for justice for Leelah Alcorn.
She laid out the problems that trans people face in a society hostile to us, and issued an impassioned call to fix the problems now that ail trans kind.
“I am here to tell you that we don’t need to be fixed,” she said in the speech. .
“What is wrong is society’s depraved indifference, willful ignorance,
complicity, and inactive engagement with the systems that deny trans
people our humanity and our right to life.”
Amen, sis. Here’s the speech.
