I...wonder how you all will find out if I go jump off a bridge
I feel so many things and don't really know how to express it. I read the stories about trans people committing suicide, being murdered , losing jobs and facing discrimination all throughout the year, I check up on my trans friends, worry about them, feel stupid for worrying, wonder how you all will find out if I go jump off a bridge or if some asshole decides that my number is up. I know the stats, I worry about how I'm going to deal with finding out something bad has happened to any of my trans friends.
I was feeling a little too hopeless and decided that going to the vigil in Austin is too much trouble, kids gotta eat, right, but the reality is I'm still mostly in the closet IRL and getting ready for tdor was not going to happen, and showing up in full boy mode...well... Truth is I'm scared of what I am.
Much love to all my transgender friends here on mefi and elsewhere. My heart is with the families and friends of the transgender people who have lost their lives and faced abuse this year. I'm sorry that I was not strong enough to show up in person this evening and show solidarity.
