Why Every Tuesday Should Be #TransLiberationTuesday

Last Tuesday, the #BlackLivesMatter movement made history in the largest nationally organized display of solidarity with and support of the black transgender community. Numerous BLM chapters, cities and universities came together to spread awareness for the increasing number of trans-related deaths that have occurred this year. In conjunction with actions, protests, vigils and die-ins, supporters and black trans folk took to social media to make sure the messages of the day were spread far and wide.

Beyond calling for an increased awareness around the U.S., activists and supporters hope that the general public will continue to carry the conversation beyond the few days each year dedicated to honoring the issues that plague the community. Here are some illuminating posts that prove why #TransLiberationTuesday needs to happen more often.

1. The deaths of black trans women continue to be overlooked in mainstream media.

5. We have to remember trans pioneers who paved the way for the bit of progress we do have nowadays.

6. We're not just fighting for our lives and the ones of slain trans folk, but also for future generations as well.

7. Chants aren't just songs; they're demands and statements of resilence and power.
