This is another TransGriot remident for you when you see the Salvation Transphobic Army kettles out to ignore them for their continued anti-trans attitudes.
They have a long, ugly history of hating on the TBLGQ community, which is why I laughed my butt off during an episode of POSE in which Elektra Abundance and the House of Abundance jacked a Salvation Army kettle.
While the Salvation Army is claiming on their website they have changed their tune and evolved, we still don’t have clear evidence they have ended their historic antipathy toward the TBLGIQ + community.
It was also quite disturbing to see white supremacists ringing the Salvation Army kettle bells at an Indiana location.
While I don’t recommend y’all do an Elektra Abundance stunt, you can decline to drop your change in those Salvation Army kettles popping up at stores near you.
Instead donate to trans and SGL led organizations doing proven work in our community during this holiday season and beyond or trans advocates directly via their PayPal or Cash Apps.
In case you’re wondering, here’s mine if you’re feeling generous.
