I know this may be annoying old news to you, and it may seem pointless to bring up now, but it still holds a lot of space in my heart.
On November 14th of this year leelah alcorn would have been 19 years old.
Many people have forgotten, moved on. A lot of people see no point in holding her so close but I refuse to let go of her name. I refuse to forget until this battle has settled. Until i as a trans man don’t feel i have to tread so lightly just to avoid getting hurt for being myself.
She wouldn’t have wanted her death to be left behind, as she said herself; she wanted it to mean something.
To me it does. To me it will as long as I’m alive. And i hope it does to others out there too.
Maybe ill draw her, maybe something else but i will be dedicating November 15th to leelah because she has been always in my heart and in my mind for the past two years and i want to embrace that.
