Been waiting for this day ever since I sadly said goodbye to my BTAC family at the closing brunch last year and headed to the DART Downtown Transit Center to return home to Houston.
This time I get to go much earlier than I usually do.
It’s time for me to be with my BTAC family again. It’s time for the eighth annual Black Trans Advocacy Conference that starts April 23 and runs until April 28. It also serves as the kickoff to my extended birthday week celebration. BTAC 2019 is already according to Espy Brown poised to smash last year’s attendance record.
It’s still not too late for y’all who are thinking about coming to join us at the Wyndham Dallas Suites-Park Central host hotel for what promises to be an empowering and life changing event..
And yeah, some of y’all need to be very afraid when Family Fun Day comes, because the BTAC Bonemaster is coming to take her dominoes title back from Kayla Gore.
But before we get to me administering domino beatdowns next Saturday and throughout BTAC week, I have a 4 hour bus trip ahead of me up I-45. I also have the week of sessions, Trans Manifest Live, the keynote luncheon and the Awards Gala to get through before we get to Family Fun Day.
The reason I’m leaving today and not on the Monday before like I normally do is because my presence was requested for a Muhlaysia Booker rally happening later today. I didn’t see the logic in rolling up to Dallas, attending a rally doing th 4 hour trip back home and then repeating it 24 hours later when i could just simply stay in Big D a few extra days.
Sure will be glad when Texas Central Railways FINALLY starts construction on the Houston-Dallas bullet train and that four hour nonstop bus trip turns into a 90 minute Shinkansen train ride.
But that 90 minute bullet train trip is in the near future. Right now I have to make sure my statuesque behind gets to the downtown Houston MegaBus station in time for my departure to North Texas, especially after the late night I had with my OLTT fam.
