Please join us for Transpositive on KBOO Community Radio on Tuesday, May 30th as we talk with Jean, Sheila and Emma about Transgender self care during this ongoing period of intense transphobia and anti-LGBtQ messaging coming from the far right. Over 500 pieces of legislation have been introduced in the past year mostly targeting trans-youth. Unfortunately for everyone, the right wing is becoming more emboldened going after major retailers that even hint of supporting transgender people in any way, and trans women in Kansas are asking themselves, 'Will I get arrested for using the bathroom?' Meanwhile in Texas one legislator has proposed requiring people wanting to use the bathroom to show their ID to a police or security official.
In spite of this wave of hate sweeping across the country trying to erase transgender people from the public sphere through legislation targeting children, medical providers, clergy, social workers and teachers, we still need to survive. We will talk about how we are surviving and what we can do to fight back -and what we must to do take care of ourselves for the long road we have ahead of us to safety and inclusion.
