Say Their Names:
On LGBTQ+ Voices In A Time of #BLM
When frustration with violent over-policing boiled over at the Stonewall Inn on June 27, 1969, Black and Brown transwomen were on the frontlines, leading the charge in six days of rioting. The fight for LGBTQ+ lives has always been Black and Brown. The fight against state sanctioned violence has always been Black and Brown.
When people talk about Black Lives Matter as they’re marching through the streets this summer, the names of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor ring out. But what of Nina Pop, Monika Diamond and Tony McDade, and other Black Trans individuals who were victims of violence? A spirit of rebellion lives at the crux of contemporary LGBTQ+ culture.
In this time of civil unrest, are the voices of LGBTQ+ black people contributing to, disrupting, or being erased by the Black Lives Matter Movement?
