Transgender Day of Rememberance is Today:Duanna Johnson RIP

In LA, my desire to reach the transgender community has been met with some resistance by transfolk who are angered at being profiled wrongly of being prostitutes-but I say to anyone who is outraged at being profiled as a prostitute should resist state violence which occurs to those who are criminalized for prostitution.  Being transgender and crossdressing is no longer a crime, and in states like CA are protected (not that laws or being a lawmaker or law enforcer stop people from brutality and violence).  PLEASE light a candle, tip a 40, burn an incense, smoke a bowl or whatever for all of our TG sisters and brothers who we have lost in the struggle for justice or livelihood…

  1. Thank you Mariko for publishing something for Trans people. As one of the few trans organizers in the Sex Worker movement, I always feel weird pushing my transgender agenda, and try to just fit in , and do my sex worker work. I realize that it’s not the best idea, but there it is. Today was an amazing event locally where I am. 78 people showed up! We had an amazing band, and it went really well!
