June is here, and conservatives are seething. 530 anti-trans and anti-queer bills have been proposed this year, and we are still here. Now, we will gather and show them who they failed to eradicate.
We have won and we will continue to win and progress and have lives of joy and beauty. Happy pride month from FL ⚧️🏳️⚧️🏳️🌈
I can't wait to attend Pride in DC (I live in the Maryland suburbs thereof). This year is the most important, ever.
This is part of what keeps me going. Even when things seem really really bad, I remember that my continued existence as a trans person is a meaningful triumph.
CW:.... I am struggling to feel as positive as many others. Call me whatever you want. Idc.
NGL, I and many others I have spoken with are afraid to go this year because of right wing stochastic terrorism. Given the current atmosphere across the nation, I don't know how I could feel safe at one of these events. I hope everyone celebrates safely, but I just don't have a good feeling about it. Yeah I am probably overthinking and overreacting. I can't pretend like the last year hasn't really gotten to me. Maybe I am just not as strong as everyone else. I live in a blue area in one of the safe states and it feels like people are out for revenge at this point because my area went the opposite of much of the rest of the nation. Just this last weekend when I went out for my hormone level checks I had someone following me and taking pictures of me with out my permission for some unknown purpose.
Let’s show them we are united against their hate without negative discourse. Let’s celebrate our diversity and togetherness in this difficult time. We shall overcome.
June is here, and while I celebrate another birthday, I celebrate Pride too. We will continue to make progress. Best wishes to Everyone. Sending lots of Love to Everyone from London, Ontario, Canada.
Thanks for the empowering message!
Thanks Erin for your continued voice for so many. We will be Out and Proud this year more so than ever.
Will I see you at the White House pride? I would love my daughter to meet you!
I really want to see an event just like Stonewall again. We need to really fight for the right to be queer unfortunately.
Erin, this makes me smile reading this. And thank you for everything you do, day in and day out, for our great queer population. One of the strongest, most supportive and caring that I know of.
