Shoutout to the bisexuals and pansexuals, to the genderqueer and trans folk who will be completely erased from the media’s coverage of the marriage equality decision in the United States, even if it means that you will be able to marry your partner when you couldn’t before. You don’t deserve to be erased from something you want to celebrate.
Shoutout to the folks for whom this decision does basically nothing. Shoutout to the trans women of color who experience incredibly high rates of violence and who will probably face the brunt of the backlash to the decision from straight people. We will not ignore you. We will not silence you. We will not forget you.
The movement for equality is FAR from over. Celebrate if you want to celebrate, but listen to the voices of those who are not celebrating.
