November = T Day
Yes. November in the United States is marked with that all important spectacle of Thanksgiving where millions of Americans eat Turkey. But I’m talking about a different T.
November also marks the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. For those of you who don’t know what that is, check out my post from last year.
These next few weeks there will be a variety of events to raise awareness for all walks of Trans* people. There’s a Comedy show, a cocktail reception, a workshop on how to be a Trans Ally, a workshop on the intersection of Race and Trans Identity, and of course TDOR itself. For QAPA’s part, we’ll be holding our next Speakout to address the intersectionality of gender and sexuality.
Check out an event. Think about the amazing work that Pauline Park, Kit Yan and Andy Marra (to name just three) do for our community. Save the Turkey for another day.
