Trans Pride

Today is the last day of Pride Month and we can't leave it without talking about Trans Pride. Many times in the LGBTQ+ community, trans people have felt left out of Pride. If it wasn't for two trans women of color, we most likely wouldn't have the rights we have today. Even though most of all the Pride celebrations were cancelled this year due to COVID-19, it has helped us educated and learn more about Pride and how we need to fight for Black Lives. 

In today's episode Kennidi Monroe talks about the Stonewall Uprising, Marsha P. Johnson and Silvia Rivera and how trans women of color have shaped and molded her into the woman she is today. We also discuss the trans documentary Disclosure on Netfilx and how that movie has made Kennidi look back on her life and how badly she wanted to be an actor but felt like being trans would never allow that to happen. She talks about how she turned to drag and the adult industry to fill that void of wanting to be an actor. 

As we end this month of Pride remember to carry that pride on with you for more than just one month. Carry it to the voting booths this November.
