Gender Reveal

Jun 16, 2020

Tuck gives a quick overview of the many breaking trans news stories from the last few days. Then, we revisit our conversation with activist and labor organizer Alyssa Pariah (she/her). Topics include:

  • How the Black Lives Matter movement supports trans liberation better than many LGBTQ orgs
  • How bail funds can save Black trans lives
  • Coping with survivor's guilt as a 32-year-old trans woman of color
  • Also: an army of trans bitches in the class war!

This Week In Gender: The Trump administration's short-lived rollback of healthcare anti-discrimination protections; today's SCOTUS decision (sort of!); Dominique "Rem'mie" Fells; Riah Milton; Layleen Polanco Xtravaganza; and more.
