What about my body? Protection of trans bodies in performance art

Ed. note: This post was originally published on the Community site.

In recent years it’s started to look like trans issues are gradually moving up the agenda. Increasingly many people, both within and outside of LGBT+ communities, see themselves as trans allies and take an interest in the existence of trans people. Whether it’s following Laverne Cox on Twitter, or even turning up to see a trans person of colour tell and perform their story, to cheer them on and show support and appreciation in person, we all couldn’t be happier to show the world that we recognize the humanity of trans people and their struggle.

British fashion, beauty and style magazine, Glamour UK, may have had the worst public blunder (to put it mildly) so far, but their antagonistic white girl antics are nothing new. For Black women, “Becky” and “good hair” are euphemisms that have been around for a long, long time.

Chart of the Day: Civil rights protests have never been palatable to white people

White people have been racist for a very long time. White people have also long been delusional about this fact. Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee co-founder Julian Bond once said that public opinion about the civil rights movement could be boiled down to one sentence: “Rosa sat down, Martin stood up and then the White folks saw the light and saved the day.” A new Washington Post review of polling data challenges that false narrative.
