Transwomen dating asian dating in nyc

Though I have not been able to watch the video of my interview (I have already experienced it and won’t be doing so again), I’m proud of the labor I put forth, and I’m grateful to Yee for her preparation and effort to steer the conversation away from the particulars of my body and instead toward my work.The interview was what it was, and I refuse to re-experience being asked about my vagina in such blatant, irrelevant, and sensational ways.

The interview aired on radio stations across the country (edited and condensed) and in its entirety on You Tube a week later.It’s this deplorable rhetoric that leads many cis men, desperately clutching their heterosexuality, to yell at, kick, spit on, shoot, burn, stone, and kill trans women of color.It’s something I’ve written about extensively and even explored in my conversation with actress Amiyah Scott, who lost her sister Chyna Gibson when she was shot to death in New Orleans in February. There have been at least 15 reported deaths of trans women of color so far this year, according to GLAAD.My sisters and I are here and we exist, and you will not diminish our light and our brilliance.Even in the face of this nonsense, I have to acknowledge that this is not about me.
