[confession time: 2012] on whiteness in trans/queer POC spaces.
i do not feel at home with whiteness. i can no longer open my heart up to it unless it is about re-distribution of resources and not taking up space, genuine discussions of realizing power. now, in the context of white trans/queer people specifically, when you are taking up rude space in brown, POC, mixed transgender and queer communities, i want you to know that i see you. our brown/mixed lives are not to be toured like an easy breezy vacation getaway. just because we might hold transgender/male/masculine/queer banner together, don’t think we are the same. we’re not.
