CBS 46 SPECIAL PRIDE 50-WE MARCH ON 2020

As I reflect back to 2015 during this PRIDE season, I was honored to have been selected to serve as an Atlanta Pride Committee Grand Marshall for the Pride Parade. For a Southern Girl like me from South Carolina to become a Grand Marshall here in Atlanta, GA that year was an opportunity to educate others about BLACK TRANS LIVES, our humanity and the many inequities that we face on a daily basis.
Fast forward to 2020, I am as honored and affirmed by being included in the CBS 46 SPECIAL PRIDE 50-WE MARCH ON. During this CoVid 19 Pandemic and the racial and social justice movement, I feel that it’s even more important to further illuminate our resiliency, while also bringing awareness to the deeply rooted discrimination, injustice and inequality that we’re still experiencing on a systemic level. As importantly, I am also thrilled to participate in paying tribute to our ally, people’s champion and the man that encouraged us to get into some “GOOD TROUBLE”, Congressman John Lewis. His sacrifices will never be forgotten. Always Remember, HUMAN RIGHTS ARE TRANS RIGHTS, TRANS RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.
