Acknowledging how we are complicit in harm towards marginalized groups that are more disadvantaged than us is key to gaining freedom for all. Social media sheds light on the stories that we often would never hear or see but there are still stories that are being hidden about violence on the LGBTQ community specifically Black Transwomen. The humanity is being stripped by homophobic people, ignorant people and privileged people like cis-gender black women who are not checking other groups when we hear them spewing ignorance that will further marginalize them. Transgender people have higher suicide attempt rates than many marginalized groups have due to this group being more targeted and not protected. Transgender people often do not have the same access to work, housing, and basic necessities due to policies and people's personal biases that are imposed upon them.
