Wasn’t expecting to be able to go this year, but it worked out for me and I will now be part of the #NN16 crowd wandering the America’s Center Convention Complex in downtown St Louis for this year’s edition of Netroots Nation.
This will be my second one after a four year absence from my inaugural one in Providence in which I was part of the historic all-trans Blogging For Transgender Equality panel.
It was an overall positive experience for me. I ended up during my time at #NN12 doing two radio interviews on This Week In Blackness (TWIB) and Michaelangelo Signorile’s show and meeting a lot of people in the national liberal-progressive movement that i still converse with to this day.
And just as I did during #NN12, I’m not just going to hang out in my LGBT community comfort zone. I’m planning on hitting some panels geared toward the Black community and letting my unapologetic Black trans voice be heard in those spaces as well.
We’ll see what happen next week, but I’m looking forward to going.
