Mainstream LGBTQ groups solely focus on fighting for the rights of white L(esbian), G(ay), B(isexual) and (Q)ueer, and at no point have Black Trans people shared fully in the gains of racial justice from the activism.
In LGBTQ, T stands for Transgender, meaning it stands for the most overlooked group of this activism. So, this Transgender Day of Remembrance, we make the presence of Black Trans people visible, by making them invisible, literally: We remove the letter T across The New York Times’ entire front page.
Because once their invisibility is invisible, we can’t ignore them.
