these are the photos i choose for blackout the blackout, because i need support and validation as not only a black person, but a black transfeminine person. im really struggling with my mom right now and being asked to suppress myself when i go home this weekend and not being able to show her the beauty in my gender expression is going to be painful. transmisogyny is an issue that the black community truly needs to tackle. tackling homophobia and transphobia in the black community won’t end negative views on transwomen. embrace us, we are still a part of you, and we have always been a part of you.
