In the wake of our HERO loss, now that we have the local media’s attention that we didn’t have during the HERO fight, the Houston trans community has gotten up off the mat and it coming out swinging against our lying detractors.
Dee Dee Watters organized a media training event on Sunday at the Montrose Center in which we discussed what we need to do if we find ourselves staring at the unblinking eye of a camera. We also discussed talking points for ourselves and allies as part of our effort to permanently kill the ignorance about trans people.
One of the attendees of that media training was Vito Cammisano, and when it was over several of us got to test drive some of our talking points in front of his camera.
