Transgender hope

It is darkest before the the dawn. Yesterday, what started out as an assault by two men on two transgendered woman, turned into a mob beating of them and their friend who had come to their aid.

Normally the story ends there. Police investigate another case of ‘living while transgendered’, and eventually move on. But on this day good men and woman stood up against the darkness. In silent vigil, 300 members of this community came out to show support with the transgender community.

Braving the ridicule of the community, they stood up for what is right. Believing in the dignity of all human beings. This gives me hope. Hope that even through intolerance and hate, love will shine like a beacon through the black pitch of night.

The author of this prose would be proud, at those who spoke up yesterday against injustice.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Dearest Sisters, it pains me greatly to hear that some of our sisters took a beating for being who they are. When are we as a group going to say that enough has been too much and start to push for our own rights? I, for one will, arethere any out there who wish to stand with me? If we don’t start to talk to our people in high places we will never be thought of as any more than a crude party joke. Every other group that I know of has at least one lobbyist to push government to… Read more »
