Golden Birthday Fundraiser for BTAC
My golden birthday (turning 25 on the 25th) lands during a very historic month.
June is Pride Month, which originated with the Stonewall Uprising. Starting June 28, 1969. We have Pride Month because of Black Transwomen like Marsha P. Johnson. We owe so much to this community that has been pushed aside from many justice movements.
The Pulse Nightclub shooting happened on June 11, 2016. And on the 4th anniversary of this horrific event, President Donald Trump removed nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people when it comes to health care and health insurance.
In June 2020 alone, there have been two high profile gruesome deaths of Black Transwomen in the US. This is in honor of Dominique Remmie Fells and Riah Milton.
Black Lives Matter. Black Trans Lives Matter.
It is necessary to help the most targeted in our nation.
Help support the Black Trans community by donating to this fundraiser to provide cash grants and care packages to those affected most by Covid 19.
My goal is to reach $2,500 by my birthday June 25.
Love you so much,
