"It's hard. It's very hard as a person of color I think today. or any day to walk around with this? The difficulty is that this is not new. It's been happening for years. It's just that the headlines You guys work in journalism. You know the headlines Now the the push to to actually popularize or talk about these things is bigger this headline it's a good story. Five years ago this was still happening, but it wasn't a good story. And so I think that's what's difficult about it is that is this the time to strike. I don't know but a change has to happen because our current administration is still pretending that we are a minority when in fact, people who think this way and think that things that are happening are wrong are majority. Sorry. Occasionally, I can go cermony. This It's very true and it's notable sort of watching the past three nights in prime time. The number of people standing on podiums associated with the current convention saying people are in the street I'd happy. But clearly, there's no problem as opposed to wait if people are telling you, there's a problem. Why would you say that there's not? This is clearly a problem by not. It's like it's clearly a problem and it's clearly stomach and. I'm writing dirty thirty about police corruption, but it's really not combat corruption. It's about our attitude toward this. You know why are why are police and other countries not even armed? I mean, if you think about that, she's big about what where, where our minds are. I think it's hard though because we are American and we fought and gotten so far here I am I live specifically I chose this I live in a part of La that used to be restricted where blacks could not live Nat King Cole, actually integrated this part of Los Angeles when he bought a house here, I live in Hancock Park and I chose to buy here live here because I wanted to show my daughter. You know what? This is what we do we continue to take space we continue to make sure that we are seeing. That it is important that we are seeing. But at the same time you don't should I have I still feel like I still feel like there's so much change that has to happen I. Feel. So grateful that I can buy here I was grateful that things have changed that redlining is illegal that that that that federal case was one but under the current administration, it would never have been. So I think that there's a lot of work that we need to do and I on and I think that really the responsibility is for white people to talk to each other we've been talking. We've been saying we've been yelling at we've been shouting it, but it's really about my friends who's parents still live in Ohio who live in swing states saying you can't do this. You can't vote for him because it endangers the life of my boss, endanger the life of my friends and endangers the life of you know what I mean. It comes down to that, and now that I'm getting on a political soapbox here but to say that we the responsibility now needs to fall on white people just as in the Black Trans. Community for example, the responsibility is on those of us who are not trained to save to other people who are not translate stop it south that fucking bullshit right now it is not cool. It's not okay because that's our responsibility right? Black Trans Women are being murdered and I think it's time we have to south that we just it is what it is. I don't know if that's feels like a different segue. But what I'm really saying is those of us who are in a position to have the conversation must have the conversation. Right which is what I think is interesting. It will be interesting to see how shows like Brooklyn Nine, nine or law and order Svu if they're able to write in what's happening in the world right now in our society when and to your point what has obviously been happening for for a long time but TV especially broadcast. It's right there in the name, it reaches a broad audience right and you know so much of what I do when I think about it goes back to a quote from someone who is important to me, Harvey Milk and for the lgbt community and he said something along the lines of if they know us, they can't discriminate against US and I. Think that inherently is the power of television when it goes into homes across the globe, right shows like law and order and and grey's anatomy et Cetera are sold globally in in something like two hundred and fifty mark global markets. But when a show that tackles something that is timely and important, and it has the power to change minds. So I'm just curious you know from your vantage point is there a way for for a show like Brooklyn nine nine to continue on without going there like what would you do if you were running that show I? Think it's like this I think I would have to ask a lot of questions where I that positioning from my own positioning. How you make that. Funny. I'm just telling you how you make that funny. I, know how I could do it at law and order view, which is a serious show right. So how to kind of walk into a situation have ice tea sort of you know at the center maybe of this conversation and have him stop someone or have a conversation among the cops themselves about it you know have that kind of happened off the top of my head. I think a lot of different ways to address it. Yes Leslie. I. Think it can be done I. Don't know where the funny is now, but again, I got fired from Bernie Mac. So maybe I just never know where the funniest but I Know where the funny is like I don't know how you make that funny and I think one of the things that we saw with blackish is that a Kennywood goes straight at themes go straight at things that were happening and if you remember he made this great episode and ABC wouldn't air it because it was too controversial and now they've aired it because they're like Oh our bad. But the censorship of the episode was the problem in the first place right? He was trying on broadcast as you say in a broad. Way To try to educate folks. But that takes time and intensity, and it was only after years of proving that he could bring the funny that that was actually a thing that he could really do right and ABC technically still hasn't aired it. It's only on Hulu. So correct, correct. Okay. So this is my point though, right so really I think it can be attacked a great question I think it can be attacked, but the problem is turnaround right? The problems turn around how fast can you get it on the air to? When does it air? When does it shoot? which in this good luck covert has changed everything has changed. Shooting I actually don't know how we'll find new normal. My shrink says there's always a new normal available. You will come to find a new normal and so I think that we will find the new normal as an industry will find the new normal. We'll figure out a new way to do this Tyler Perry figured it out, but he just couldn't let people leave right yeah yeah. That's what happens when you're on a campus for production yet. Right but this is the thing. Tyler doesn't have more money than these networks. If people wanted to make a campuses, they could do that. That could be done. If people.

Someone like you. You just like have this like big is like. Platform. Access the money that you wouldn't even have to actually do anything. You could probably just get people to organize someone do. You wouldn't even have delegated like. Building out that organization would be the intimidating part about to organization hire people maverick. Make your make hundred Turkey sandwiches and go pass them out downtown. Pro Yuri doesn't know how. Literally. I was. Lag, but it's hard to. Talk about we were looking at different organizations. Let's collaborate them with with this guy was telling me about let's we literally do we could do a merchandising and we could give away food at the same time. What talk about off camera introduce you to the people I'll let you see what was going on, but it's Good. This is the big thing. The kind of holds me back from doing anything and charity right now is fact that I've thought about it a lot I've got. I've Kinda like tried to get it off the ground. I don't really want. This is like a weird realization had recently I don't WanNa do anything more than like basically what I'm doing right now because I'm already feel like just overwhelmed, doing a Vlogger to a Wego our like trying to stick to doing like one or two dogs a week doing like fucking a lot of these weeks I'm like five six interviews I'm doing this podcast I'm trying to stream I'm trying to fuck and make like a video for my channel. It's just getting ready for the interviews takes a lot longer and probably. Urban. Overwhelm and it's like there's so many things that you could be doing like I think. I should meditate. I think I should do yoga here like two more things that are gonna take like an hour and a half out of my fucking week day just how many things I'm going to do there's a big part of me just like he they don't WanNa do anything more wanted to be Less. Things I want things in my life. It is funny. Just watch you like trying to like. What's the word? It's the most selfish explanation possible for why honestly I respected though. Whatever you know. But okay, this is the thing is that I'm going to a collaborate him and I'm I'm open to the idea. I. Need I need. You don't have to do anything I, play you know jump. Brand our voice towards more. Okay but this, this is my thing. There is a spectrum of virtue signaling and you decide where you fall on that spectrum and I'm not I know that virtually with like a weird right wing connotation whatever. But I think that's how I want to explain it. Basically, like I know some people who on just like a Monday afternoon, we'll just tweet out like you know. We need to do more for the Black Trans. Community and I'm. Like. What are you talking about? Like? No Shit like, of course, trans people deserve. Every right black people deserve every every person has but like what? What is it in your personality that wants to just state? Really. Things. Throughout the day I. Just don't get that I couldn't Ima-. A story about somebody really bad I. See a story about something really fucked up that trump something route or racist or whatever. It just doesn't make sense to me to quote Article Link to the article and say. I agree trump is a bad guy. He's a racist. Random why do on a win ran away dude on a Wednesday afternoon just like a Yo racism is bad. It, just doesn't make sense to me I just don't get where it comes from. But our rather people that do that then say Nadan I guess yeah. I guess that's cool till. I like you that's my thing. Is You WANNA. Make it clear where you stand but then at a certain point of year White Guy I do you really need to be stating that everybody loves equally all the time like I don't think you need to do does your voice as a white man in the Corporate America world and just the way that people look at Shit your voice might be more powerful in certain situations where white people are more I think. You need to pick your spots you need to if you're gonNA do something do it in a meaningful way don't just like fire that fucking saying loud not saying loud shot in for an amount of really what you believe in because also like even if it's just one person saying all fuck trump or oh, we need to protect black people like, yes, that's obvious. But like combined with all the fucking millions of other tweezers that are saying like let's protect black people and then that rises them up to go protest in the streets and like make a different push. In Congress and stuff like that like I'd like Monty or hospitals that I'd rather they say anything then nothing you know. That's how I feel. It's nice to say something. People are saying too much. Stand up sheltie explicit. No. It's actually his teacher I. Think it's the same percent made the the whippet dirt's. Shirts shut out to drive a rest and power big floyd shirt.

"Our Social and digital advocacy, which most people are probably familiar with if you follow us on Social Media but we also work directly in community whether around creating a in a law proposals or law models or working in collaboration with organizations pursuing justice around gun violence and gun violence prevention and laws around that you know our work is growing in. You know we just turned one years old last month and so happy birthday Marsha Jamf Institute but you know. We had plan or so many different programs to lapsed this year but with the pandemic it really. Interrupted our work in a way that you know we've had to kind of go back to the drawing board like many organizations, and so you know what we recognize is that the number one goal that we have is you know to help aid in supporting our people stay alive during this global pandemic, and so the number one thing that we're doing right now is providing Cobra relief to our community, and so we've partnered with several organizations to support our cove relief efforts in. We're anticipating matter over relief efforts will have to continue for quite some time considering all of the updates that we all have around. This pandemic is going anywhere. So that is our number one program but you know in the future, we are looking to launch fellowships for artists specifically to. Ensure that. Our it recognized as intervention and as a tool to interrupting some of the Anti Black violence that we're seeing whether an affect the legislative or a social levels but also working to get our people you know access to voting rights. To. Reproductive Justice writes in uh, those are the issues in in causes that we're taking going as an organization in that, we're looking forward to pursuing in the future and essentially providing housing. You know something else that you know we're we're very very interested in in Oh myself as survivor of so many different things. It's always important for me in not connected to survivor causes in things that provide more security or those who are at risk of. Being harmed or being survivor certain things. So the COVID release that you're providing right now does that look like Actual money. Like dollars sent to transmitting. As of the day we have sent out a hundred and seventy-five cash stipends to black. Oh, that's great across the United States. So you know our goal is to increase that to. Ethnic. OUR NEW GOAL IS A. Thousand with the goal keeps going up every day and so with the donations from community helps us to be able to provide these resources directly back to those who need it, and so we really focused on several different kind of need. So those who have recently lost their jobs due to the Bandon, make those who are experiencing housing insecurity those who are formally incarcerated in those who are doing survival sex where so those are the areas in which we Live in our relief aid. How Are you hearing from folks? How are you able to connect with those with those folks? Yes. So we actually the first round of stipends came from applications. So we had an application process where within the first twenty, four hours of application we received over three, hundred fifty. Applications so you know. For us, we recognize the need was great. We were like, oh. Hey, we maybe this was bigger than we thought. It was gonNA be because people. Have great needs, and so we're still actually processing applications that we receive back in May. We haven't even been able to open the application backup up just because for small grassroots organization, we had to hire a team to be able to support all the requests that. Though know we're moving into into that you know more super excited to be able to provide more relief to those especially at a time where the government is saying that you know there might not be another stimulus in a where does that leave -solutely, immunity. Rate and what? What sorts of which sizes up stipends are you have? You been able to provide like? What are you talk? What is what is the amount you've been able to send out yes? Oh, we've been able to send out anywhere. Well, I'm like maybe I, should say but we've been able to send out I've hundred dollars as the stander. That's great. That's great. Honor in seventy five people have received five hundred dollars from us. It's really great. Each each person. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's great. I mean A. Right of course because you know this is a time when let's say you're talking about things like It's just as each each. Thing that you talked about as cures criteria that we're looking at is something where a black trans woman would be like would be more affected. So you lose your job and discrimination based on appearance or maybe you don't have access to transportation because you're already erling less And so therefore, the search for a new job is is difficult and so then you you lose your housing making it very easy to see how these would have compounding effects in Black Trans Community that that. Folks were. Already the most vulnerable going into covid within then be. That would be compounded and something like survival expert at a time when. When there's A deadly virus on the streets? I mean it's it's IT'S A. Obviously these are. Issues, that are mid so much more complicated by the Kurds situation exactly, and that's why you know we're committed to doing. This as long as we need to really try to provide as many interventions as we possibly can you know during the month of pride and during this month, we've continued to learn of the murders of black trans. Women. In the reality is as long as Black Trans women are disconnected from resources access to well these murders are going to continue you know, and that's the unfortunate part about it. It is up the community organizations in all of those who are embedded figure out what ways they can continue to give. In also really pressure on the government ass system and not just intern.

"You Know Marsha p Dong? Sun Wasn't a writer as far as we know, but that's why I lean on. Sylvia Rivera wasn't a writer as far as we know, but that's why lean on miss major is to arlene on you know, and that all informs my work, and I have no qualms at this point in my career about owning that admitting that. definitely. So. It's interesting. Because The New York Times I think they haven't ongoing obituary project called overlooked where you know. They're going back to all those people whose lives were overlooked by the obituary section in this. Household legacy publication. And so talk to me a bit about. The Of obituaries particularly. In regards to the Black Trans Community. Yeah so. Already you know I, think obituaries and particularly for the black community. It's like your love ladder to. The person that has gone. Yet now I. Have? Experience the writing of obituaries for my father for. My grandmother for her I. And I don't take that process lightly I. Mean those are pieces written with so much intentionally typically and so much love and vulnerability, and possibly the most vulnerable say it's the people riding them have never been. So. It's important and the unfortunate truth. Is that so many trans people, but particularly blocked Trans People. Aren't loved respected. After death and particularly during that process. In the last two weeks there have been reports and media, and from community of at least six trans, women. WHO had been murdered? and. Most of them were initially mis gendered meaning, they were identified as male. By police a media. Many of them were called. What we call a that name, which is you know or their birth name the name that they did actually choose for themselves. And, so that kind of disrespect, even after experiencing some of the most brutal of violence, a person can experience Is Demoralizing you know so. I wanted to talk with people who knew. These women closely. Wanted to ask questions. Abou- what their dreams and aspirations are what their lights than hobbies were. What brought them joy? What made them smile over their favourite songs The joyful things and I heard tower full. Testimonies I heard from. A man who had just gotten day. It's to one of the women about a month before she was murdered. They had been together for a few years. Loved each other deeply. They had a dog together. And you know. She was martyred. His fiancee was murdered. That's a love story I heard about a mob. Who Sheild with murdered and a different state and You know how she missed their last laughter and. Wants to see you know what they were going to becoming life. Yeah, there was another young woman named. Bailey reads who. was. I believe seventeen years all. She was just about to off to college. He was killed. So. I talked with her sister. And her husband about. You know her vibrant personality in house. You shot a figure out what she was going to do with rely so these are not stories that we hear about Black Trans People. And with the obituaries are both wanted to honor. Their humanity. But I also wanted to signal. Sue other Black Trans people that. They does our respects. That their stories matter no matter what happens. And that there will be people fighting. For you. No matter what happens. And then I also just wanted to signal to the rest of the world that. You're missing our stories and shouldn't be. After our death that you hear those stories you should be honoring our power now. thank you. Well I love that project personally okay. Interesting that you're saying you are. You're a multi hyphen. Because especially now today we're seeing these conversations crop up around objectivity in how that's you know has always been a main tenant of wisdom in journalism as we all know. The Industry today was established by predominantly white male people and institutions right but the black press. which came up in the early eighteen hundreds that came up directly as a response to. The lack of inclusion of black stories in news in historically white media, and as a way to counter the few times we were covered. To counter those negative stereotypes right so there has always been this. Sort of mission to uplift black communities I. Think you know in the of black journalists in in this country right and you had said in an interview that you had at one point. You're using objectivity as a mask to not be yourself. You talk a little bit about that moment when you were using it as to mask yourself objectivity. Yeah, I think that. When I was in journalism school. You now, this tenant of objectivity reigns supreme. And in many ways it was a warning. To not be too black, an IB too much of a woman's not beat clear. It's not be too low incomes be. Too much of anything, because then that will compromise your ability to tell. An unbiased story. But the flaw in that? One of the fathers is that? Our? Industry is not unbiased. Just as you said. It is a white supremacist industry. It was started in large fired. You know and I. I'm hyper aware of this as a black journalist who came from the south. Who went to an institution that is named after an unabashed white? Supremacist. The they molded this in this way. And it's easy for. A person who has the dominant experience dominant adds to think that anything else deviates from that is. Being extra or a being French, and so we have to grapple with that in our industry that the white supremacy the respectability. The ALITA.

And making note of the things that I don't like and one of the things that I saw was that women get to use fashion as a revenue stream as a signifier as art, and so I sat out that that's what I wanted to do. I had no idea that it would catch on so quickly that it would happen so fast. And that it would happen as large as it did I wasn't really wearing gender fluid things outside of playing Lola in Kinky boots. Like I wasn't even thinking of it like that and I was getting ready to go on a summer tour for album. Billy twitter presents the soul of Richard Rogers and I knew that I wanted to look like I was like after I'm trying to like us out to bridge my way back into the music industry and need a look.

Even trying to impersonate that character in school, her was something that got me in trouble. You know like teacher would call my mom and it's like you think back like. Why was that something to call a parent over? You know right because Martin can do it. Yeah, but Martin is straight and doing so when you're straight and doing it's easy because the audience knows you're gonNA. Have Sex with your wife. That's called Tanto.

If they air the episode where I was in address because it's perverted, you know there's an agenda. The Gay Agenda and I'm GONNA come in molested children. It's like this is exactly the conversation I wanNA. Like in a public town hall forum, so we can has it out, so we can really really talk about why me over here minded. My own black asked businesses doing what I as a grown man can do has anything to do. Where's the line that leads to me coming into your house molester, children. You to walk me through the line that gets from this tha I need. You know because in my life. I've only had sex with consenting adults. A child molester is a child molester, gay or straight. That's not the same thing. Stop complaining those things. It's not the same thing I'm sick having this conversation. That's why you see the anger. You know that's why about trauma show sometimes like I, said the other day. EICHNER because I'm sick of it I'm tired every single day of my life. It's business, so you might get cut out now. You ve very well month. I'll do my best not to, but you might get cost out. In the wrong way. Also the moral is like what they're mad at is that they can't shove their beliefs about who you are down, kids throats. It's not the it says you had a voice that you had a say in it at all. It's like no actually what sesame street is doing is teaching children. What y'all aren't teaching, which is everybody on the planet as human and some people are going to be different than you and that doesn't mean that you treat them poorly. Treat everybody the say. That's what sesame street at thanks. That's what most of you all proclaim. From you know the Evangelical God point of view, it's like with the way you're going to have anything to do with God or the Bible. It's actually the thing of what the Bible says. So now I'm really. Not. Speaking of Billy Eichner, a friend of mine, Lewis's I loved seeing. That interview of yours with him hosting Jimmy Camel, it was so exciting seeing two gay men having conversation on a late night TV show, no right. Yeah, and you talking about your instagram to about just how we need to stand up. For the Black Trans. Community you know and I really appreciate it that and wanted to talk to you about it. Because I feel like for so long, we have wanted to in the black community. Keep white people from insisting. You know that we are more homophobic than them. You know the conversation when you talk about Homophobia in the black community you WANNA say don't just mention that we're not the reason. Prop eight etc.. Etc those things, but you know now that Black Trans Women. We know they're being killed by black men, and we know that we have so much to talk about now. What made it just so imperative for you to really WanNa be having these conversations in public masculinity has been in question since I could comprehend side so I grew up in a pentecostal church and wild. My family loves me and my people loved May Dade. Homophobia is dangerous, violent emotionally violence think it's interesting to me because.

Absolutely horrific I've. Rarely if ever heard about any of them in the news there. I don't know what else to say about that. Except that pride for me has been great for what it is, and it isn't what it was. And when I showed up and jumped in the parade for years ago and felt like free, and really out there in public and.

I Thank you, I'm really not sure what his question was. What the question was there? I think Jesse just wanted to share some of his experience. Remind people of the level of violence. That both the Trans Community in the Black Trans Community experiences in the United States and to talk about how important it is to be recognizing the intersection of identity. Here I didn't know if any of that resonated or if there was anything you wanted to build on from there. In one way that we can support A. Okay I think we may have lost Casey again.

In response to these murders on the ongoing violence against the Black Trans Community and Brooklyn this Sunday. It's estimated that over fifteen thousand people took to the streets dressed in white in a march for Black Trans lives. The size and intensity of this, March I mean stunned. All of US bystanders participants organizers I mean with gays against guns. Here at we organized event last November for a transgender day of remembrance and okay granted, it was like sub zero, and we were had by the Hudson River, but you know. Maybe one hundred people showed up. Fifteen thousand people in Brooklyn for Black Trans live this weekend. Videos show a sea of people stretching for blocks and blocks and blocks from Grand Army Plaza. Eastern Parkway, and it even made it. All the way up to four is one point. One speak at the rally melania brand sister of Lean Palanca who many of our listeners will remember as trans woman who was found dead. Last year in a salad rikers island. Brand said black. Trans lives matter. My sister's life mattered. If one goes down, we all go down and I'm not going nowhere. So. We hope that this violence. Affecting Black Trans, women black. Trans folk is finally getting the attention that it deserves black transgender people not only bear disproportionate burden of police violence, but also face high rates of violence and harassment on the street. The American medicalisation said last fall the killings transgender women of Color. In the United States has amounted to an epidemic at this point. And, here's a here's a stash that.

"The next people and eighty percent identified as women, and that's from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. By the way. Candy Black Trans Woman. WHO's a sex worker in an activist? Right his candy. Check her out. So. She was in fact, a victim of this she called did stop and Frisk. Two point zero an interview with the nation earlier this year and Spent some time in New York City so, what were your experiences with his law or the organizing around it, and can you speak to the ways law enforcement more broadly criminalize transpeople l.. Let's start with you. Yeah, absolutely so as one of the signers of the actual advocacy letter, the national civil rights LGBT groups. We formed advocacy letter around this particular legislation around. Yeah, you know the targeting of the community and you know I, think that one of the things that is rarely ever thought about is the way that policing happens outside of just the murders of people whether the overpopulation of at least. least in our communities, and what that means even with Colden, we saw how there were additional police in New York City that were dispatched, and throughout the Tri State region so for us at the Marsha p Johnson Institute. We've worked on a number of policing issues. We do identify an abolitionist organization, really calling or not only an interruption, but an abolishing of how the police are legally able to target black people how they are legally able to target Black Trans people in those who are forced to engage in different economy work. The reality is if there were jobs in there were resources available. then. Maybe there might be a different engagement that our community has with. Sex Work, but the reality is those reserves haven't been created, so we want to always make sure that people's ability to make a living for themselves at that is protected, and that that's not being interrupted by over policing or the targeting of our bodies. You know one of the things that I think again just historically is that in nineteen sixty nine during the stonewall rebellion? It literally was. A response to the ways that the police were targeting Trans People based on the way they dress or look so there were still law during that time that abolish trans. People from wearing clothing that you know. They felt reflected who they were in so walking out trans. This legislation is certainly a continuation of what this community with Black Trans or in New York, city in particular throughout the entire state of New York I've really been fighting against for many years. So, it was a year ago that we were mourning the death of Lean Gula Polanco who. Last summer, our former inter noisy, the goal covered a rally honoring Lee Lean in Foley Square, a rainy summer day. Hundreds came out for that day. died in solitary confinement, rikers island in New York City, she was after letting X. Trans woman placed in solitary confinement for twenty days despite a medical history of epilepsy and schizophrenia. Milania Brown. Spoke at the Brooklyn Rally of for Black. Trans lies at just took place. The same week as the Brooklyn March, there was video footage of a surveillance camera inside Polanco's room. At reicher does that video was released. It showed that the staff right failed to provide her with medical care that could have saved her life too often, right medical care and especially mental health care. Is denied to transpeople, and after the killings of Nina pop and Tony mcdaid, the ochre project responded to the moment and dedicated funds to provide black trans people with a free mental health therapy session with black therapists. E. N. who we heard from earlier, told our producer Harsha that they have been raising about one hundred thousand dollars a day. Damn, here's more from in. This has been my dream for a while and I'm just thinking about all the things that we as like black people in by Trans people go through like we need to have like free one hundred percent, free mental health therapy sessions, and so to figure out a way that we could do that with the ochre project was just such a blessing in such gift, so one of the things we talk about a lot on this show is our mental health talk about self love. We talk about nature or music or whatever things that help. You birding. You know anything that helps us, so there is a feeling like there are a lot of institutions and services you know and the police that are failing transpeople, but when you're thinking about a black trans lives, how important is the community when you're talking about mental health in kind of creating a sense of like? We got you that a lot of us. You know we talked about this earlier on in the fake. This kind of mutual support mutual aid so important is that in terms of mental health with the Black Trans Community. It's beyond important. I think it's necessary I think that is the journey of healing it. It's like a no brainer right. I think in this moment. What's coming up to me? Is Uplifting in parallel two lane. Polanco I think about Blake are Brooklyn ten I, just want to go back to two thousand fourteen because I feel like it's so necessary that I captured this moment. This is a black trans man who committed suicide right eighteen high school homecoming. King North Carolina right an advocate to the T. Youth and community right? I think about how often we forget that we have babies who are are at this center of. Of figuring out what life looks like, but also on the journey of identity on the journey of figuring joy, and so I think about Blake Brooklyn Tim because we forget about the baby so often committed suicide, because we are not providing mental health support whether it's from school that we have yet to center the importance for particularly a black and Brown folks, mental health services, and that is affordable, and that is one hundred percent free so necessary for Trans.

"Welcome back to another episode of pandemic in It's June mid June now which is pride month I'm sure that you guys out. There are celebrating pride and with everything that's continuing to happen across the country and the world. We thought this week. We would highlight some black. Led organizations that we've been learning from and wanted to share with you. Guys so a few organizations here. The first one that we found that we really like is called Glitz G. L. S. and it's raising money to house black transpeople and they're just getting started. another group is called snap for freedom and they've put together another great tool kit for people out there who are interested in policing and punishment. An organization called Tgi. Justice has been doing some really amazing work addressing the Prison Industrial Complex here in California or I am. A few more organizations than Marsha. P Johnson Institute has often membership benefits while your money goes directly to the Black Trans. Community organization called the OKRA project works to have Black Trans Chefs Cook directly for black transpeople. And finally. For the girls that's for F O R. G W R L. ass they raise money to assist Trans folks with rents and affirmative surgeries, so you can find links for all these organizations and more in our show.

There's a lot happening, but Maybe things have ratcheted back a little bit from where we were in a few different like over the last few weeks. I think things are going to start like the pressure is just kind of like dialed back a little bit, but it's about to keep. Yes well especially with covert right because we're seeing states that kind of have been chill chill chill about it. Their numbers are spiking I. think Texas is one of Arizona so. Yeah. I mean that.

"black trans community" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Us is Ash Stevens. Policy Coordinator at the transgender law center Ash. Thanks for coming on the show. Yes, thanks for having me Nala from what you've seen in news reports, and in the larger sooner society response to mcdade's death. How does this fit into a pattern of violence against Black Trans people well oftentimes what how this fits into. Just my lived experience were particularly about what we notice around. Black, trans lives that often time is. Is Not honored I mean during our our our life on this earth, and after right, so like for example after the news of Tony Mc day we see Tony Debut Miss Gender by news coverage right? Our stories often go uncovered. I will live often go honored, and so when it when we think about what's currently going on as we are talking about black lives in really centering about our voices need to be heard and that there needs to be justices. Black! Trans individuals often times still do not feel connected enough to fill protected in the movement so often times what we find while we're marching with folks and fighting for all black lives. Black Trans. Individuals still feel like their lives are not valued or even protected. And so we're thinking about a movement, and how we're moving forward black, trans folks want to know that they are protected, and they're safe and the delays are valued. At. What do what can you tell us about? police brutality in the or against I should say the Black Trans Community. Yeah I think you know things are are complicated and I think because I lives are so complicated because of the ways that folks have been extremely marginalized, and so multiple sort of forces are converging when police brutality like comes upon us so as often this narrative that like we deserved something, or you know we provoked something or something like that, and and those are all structural forces that we see converged a lot rate, a lot of folks that may be experiencing homelessness, or whatever the case may be, and then those things are used against us when something happens to us. Also obviously with targeting that happens because of both being black folk both being trans an you know any other sort of like identity. That that that POPs up again that leaves us. Most Vulnerable Am I. Think we're in a in a really vulnerable position, and that leads to bowl, targeting and experiences with police and then police then use that as a way to say that we either deserve something, or we provoked something you know in in. That says again that our lives just don't matter now. Why haven't we heard more about Tony mcdaid story? That's a great question. I think won't when we think about why we haven't heard Tony. mcdaid stories and many other stories like Tony Make. Day I think about the quality of life I think about the ecosystem currently where folks who whole multiple identities such as being black and and faith whatever it may be that oftentimes ecosystem isn't supporting us right so when we go through government right policies legislation. Legislation, that's not Legislators are not supporting us in ways that is affirming right what we think about school. We often see bullying school. Push out worked I in discrimination harassment. Right then when we go to housing. We know for sure there's no way that anyone can say that. We do not see homeless folks are folks experiencing homeless ness then when we go to healthcare FAW for often, we see. HIV WE SEE lack of not getting support for our journeys, right and a firm gender affirming care hospitals when we have post in hospital and Adair MIS gendered. Then we look at community. This is a huge part. Because community is supposed to be a village up took supposed up whole people, we often see families, not supporting their children, and so then we see the cycle of them being pushed out and not getting the love that they need. Right the when we think about safety at in itself violence, even the conversation of addressing the violence often go unnoticed. All are lifted. As, you've had your own experiences with the police. Can you tell us a little bit about your experiences as a black trans man, and how that's how that's been for you, so my experiences have have varied especially because my own personal journey, and what I call, my transition I know a lot of folks will use different words for that has sort of varied But Yeah I've experienced. You know just being in in neighborhoods, all kinds of neighborhoods and being targeted for no reason in this is the being you know because I'm a young black person, and so that's happened like throughout my life I think what? Has Been Different I. Think Post my own. You know sort of jet journey with my own gender as transmitted now what happens is that there is sort of an explicit with it. Police are interacting with me as a as a black man that feels still sort of new and it feels very deliberate And I and I think transpeople experienced that same thing. Expanse that same thing. Ash Stevens is the policy coordinator at the TRANSGENDER LAW CENTER ANNALISA MON TO SAND is a member of the National Black, Justice Coalitions Black Trans Advisory Council thanks to you both for joining us.

As protests against police brutality continued to rage across the United States some of the world's biggest brands are trying to show their solidarity with the black lives, matter movement And while the intent may be good, many people are calling these companies for making generic statements that they say ring hollow this week. Congresswoman Alexandria Cossio Cortez condemned quote bland statements with a Hashtag and hall for companies to show a real commitment to change, and we asked you what you think about the recent corporate responses to the ongoing protests and racial injustice. My name is Susan I'm in Hamilton New Jersey. I don't care about their empty platitudes. That's just public relations BS I WANNA. See a diverse workforce that reflects the population and opportunities for other people in genders I'm tired, old white men in charge. Mrs Danielle Calling from Pensacola Florida. My take on this that companies should really make big changes to the work in attendance policies. Wild time is ripe instead of just constantly saying. Saying they care but they still just continue with like the major goals to worker happiness an insane productivity requirements all while they're raking in billions of actual profit that does not trickle back down to people and I think the extreme unrest that is ratcheting up is what it looks like when that system is not stable, but this trick or from Marietta Ohio. I feel that actions people our than works so much of the company. anti-racism course was our in depth. Make you think of the company cares about you and your group? Of People thinks but often the message does not match the actual conditions that company forces on their workers and customers..

"We've started it like it's a problem that's kind of of the past as we've left in the eighties, and the numbers are coming way back especially amongst the Black Trans Community I've been talking to young sex workers who of trans. Women and they tell me that they don't necessarily choose sex work as their first option. Not say that others can't find it empowering, but they personally are in a situation where no one else will hire them. And so they end up in sex work, and there is a fucking rule in NYC where you, if you are found with more than three condoms on you. You can be arrested and taken as.

yeah it can find one uh-huh she has been criticized I've seen quite a bit for that not necessarily from people I always agree with on anything but a lot of people probably more sense maybe even right wingers like oh well you can write off offense Wisconsin they started listing all the states that because you are so callous in your disdain for Christianity you have no chance of winning these states now and I bet the people that are going to show up and fill in that space are the JEN's ears who lip or mean culture and they're also going to be a lot more LGBTQ people there were this is probably one of my favorite moments with Warren she was having fun you could totally see she was having fun in fact this is her signature move now rubs her hands together she's literally releasing the hair follicles from snatching the entire audience bald with these like quick like this yeah I I I never let alone let alone the wise she's doing it they use you just I want to be clear and fair if you're an adviser to become a sergeant wonderful thing that I love about it and this is hard the conversation I even had like around the town hall last night is that the campaign all honesty has never asked me to not speak about things that are more important to me I'm still friends with other people different campaigns There's a lot of cross collaboration because I think ultimately this slate of candidates that we have there's a lot of shared ideals does and I think that this is why all of the kind of back and forth and kind of it's unnecessary because I think at the end of the day whoever wins the primary it's going to be someone who has an idea what kind of conversations need to be happening and what kind of moves they need to make represent us in the general are now I wanted this John's point so this is something that happens all the time and it's also a point about privilege so whenever a progressive criticizes anyone the rite aids very predictable not just the right wing but a lot of people in the mainstream media come and go oh you can kiss Pennsylvania goodbye okay so let's bring down a little bit so I guess you assume that Pennsylvania is bigoted right did they are homophobic etc like talk of like well that means us halted all Christians wait a minute you're not being for Christians John about the fundamentalist Christians who hate gay people okay so but if you notice if someone on goes after African Americans was a Republican nobody was this kiss Philadelphia Goodbye and without Phil You can't win Pennsylvania forget Pennsylvania and I can't believe this idiot would dare to criticize African Americans look trump today doing rally or yesterday attacks Somali immigrants who are African Americans and Muslims and nobody's saying Kiss Michigan Goodbye because he just offended all Muslims can kiss Pennsylvania goodbye because of Africa in America vote that a significant in that state etc because the people in power don't relate to black folks don't relate to poor folks don't relate to Muslims they relate to other people so they automatically assume well okay that's since this you offend someone like me even if I don't agree with them but fit demographic I'm assuming you're going to lose and I'm GONNA tell everybody you're gonNA lose thereby hurt your candidacy but if you offend people that are not in power that are significant being blocked no one cares and let's be real did you actually believe that that they necessarily had to begin with like it's one of those things where that would I've been the same response no matter what was said what the outcome was it would have been just that and even with Elizabeth Warren if she were too rigid and serious oh she needs to loosen up she's like they did with Hillary but now she's cracking jokes and she's like she got her hand game going on and her like crap shoot moves and and now she's not taking he's here she's just you know gay rights now she's at the end of the day most of the what they're adding to the conversation has no real merit or validity or any Ah factual data supporting their belief. So that's the last thing I was GonNa say is so important you're not GonNa get the racist bigoted homophobe boater anyway stopping it's total nonsense it's not like there's somebody sitting in the middle of Pennsylvania going man you know I hate gay people and I hate black people and stuff but I was thinking about one voting for Warren instead of trump but you know when she said that comment about I should marry one woman which I agree with that really made me mad and now I'm not gonNA look that's gas lighting one oh one and it was never the case and but I want you to know what's real intent the people who do they might not even consciously no I actually guessed the most of them don't consciously but the intent is if your progress of don't speak up don't fight back because then I'll tell you you're stupid lose the election because what is their assumption the country is center right remotely trophy look at the polling it's the opposite two thirds of the country's progressive and I'm gonNA prove it to you two dozen polls but the everyone on television assumes everyone in the in class assumes that country's right wing countries right-wing country hates gay people right what an idiot supporting gay people you're GONNA lose right well then why are we having the form why do we even have a Democratic Party no the whole point is to try to get people like Elizabeth Warren to shut up while she doesn't agree s she won't do it and nevertheless she persisted and that's what people like about her and guess what that's why she's right now the front runner in the race yes it's not like being more progressive herder it took her from near bottom to the very very top how many times have you heard pundits on television go you know what it was brilliant move by Elizabeth Warren to be really really progressive it took her from anonymity a nearly an emmy after they wrote her off in the beginning you remember that after the native American in heritage so-called scandal controversy etc every so more so-called smart analysts on tv she's done she's done we're done with her right now is number one how does she get there through bold progressive plants and credit one of the things I love the most about Elizabeth Warren she gives credit where it's due so she will give Bernie credit she will give Castro credit she will say you had this amazing idea I support that ain't understand the nuts and bolts of it but you know what you're working on this I support that and I think it's GonNa take a candidate who's Gonna be able to unify and so that two-thirds that you're about I think it's because we're all starting to see through the gaslight bog of the GOP NBC's talking heads and political heads who are just trying to scare us because they're afraid because they know tick tock time's up or love it let's move into territory okay it took Ben Shapiro a couple of minutes to move from a quote from last night's quality four better overall talking about a tax breaks for religious organizations that discriminate against certain Americans too threatening to gunned down either rourke or a truancy officer were they to come to his door in a circumstance he didn't like if that seems crazy it's his show let's watch in other words if you're a church you're not infringing on anybody's rights you're just saying you can't come here for your marriage go to the church down the street you're religious school you're saying listen you WANNA learn about gay rights go to the public school down the street you're not infringing on anybody you're mere existence is an infringement according to Bait or the institutional existence is an infringement on liberty according promise you if you come to tell me that you're going to indoctrinate my kids in particular policy and then I can't pull my kid out of the school and send my kids were school I want to send them to that I can't go to the Church or synagogue that I want to go two and if you make that national policy not just California policy where I can move but national policy people are not going to stand for that they're not going to stand for that and if you send a truant officer to remove my child I have two choices at that point right if I've no place to move 'cause you've now made national federal policy two choices one is to leave the country utterly choose to pick up a gun those are the only choices that you have left me and now people on all this is how could you say how could you be so extreme it's not extremely defend the fundamental rights the constitution was created in order to protect they don't work does not get to raise my child and if he tries will meet him at the door with a gun that is insane that is insane if he tries to remove my child and he's not suggesting where do you think this goes wasn't suggesting that or any of that he wasn't ten miles from this dystopia scenario that you crafted for yourself but the issue is that the logic kid the feelings guy he has realized right wing thaw only has like two modes right now it's like if they realized that the country's moving in a direction that they don't like that popular opinion is swinging on the issue away from them threatened to start gunning down people that's the go-to Lou he's approaching this conversation as if he's playing like a video game like he's sitting with his head name is fragile frank and he is just scared shaking Chihuahua of a political hack that plays on the era in the ignorance of some of these younger crowd that don't know much about politics they don't know much about what the constitution shinners about like what's outlined which that's interesting to the fact that we're protecting the constitution you don't even understand the constitution at all they don't they just so I got second but before we do that the more important point which is this threats of violence is totally unacceptable so he's saying that he would meet a presidential candidate the door with a gun he saying that if you send authorities including police door to enforce a law that he would instead murder them because he's an intel yeah because like is coming to meet you at the gun with a gun doesn't mean anything but I will kill you it doesn't mean I'll come with a gun and flowers is there's not anything you can do with a gun except to kill someone so he's saying I will not follow the law so not surprisingly sports donald trump and if you try to make me follow the law a cop trisomy if a black guy says hey I know my rights the cubs kicked the crap out of them guys like Ben Shapiro say hey should listen the cops and here's Ben Shapiro saying if a cop shows up and tells me what to do according to the law that the whole country past I'm going to murder them to options leave the country pick up a gun and I think what we're seeing is that energy is what happened after the civil war and the south and in crow laws and I it was that idea that we've been defeated our ignorance and cognitive dissonance has been penetrated and so now the only option is to go out with a bang and let's be really clear about what better actually said because with from just clip must assume oh beto said he's going to strip your kids and take them into the woods do pay rights around a bonfire he just said I'm not going to allow tax breaks for religious organizations deny people that's literally all he this panel because Ben Shapiro really what are you going to do to anybody okay now look they're they're very weak so they hide behind weaponry.
