“If you don’t fight for all women you fight for no women.” • My work is centered in learning, engaging and teaching at the intersection of race and womanhood. On this international women’s day I encourage that you think critically about what other intersections with womanhood are often displaced, silenced and ignored. Once you recognize them— show up for them! • “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” -Audre Lorde • #internationalwomensday

Today is a dream come true. Today, my book is released nationwide (and soon to be in Canada, the UK, and around the world) Today is for every child who has ever been told that their gender is not good enough. Today is for every person who has ever faced discrimination, violence, or harassment because of their gender identity. Today is for all of the trans and queer people who dream of a kinder world. Today is for all of my transcestors who fought for me before I was even born. Today is for every feminist and suffragette and activist before me. Today is for every person who is navigating the world with unacknowledged gender based trauma, who needs access to healing too. Today is for girls who are strong and boys who are gentle and trans folx and queers who are both. Today is for all of us. Today is a dream come true, and for all the dreams to come. I love y’all and I could never do this without you. A very very special thank you to everyone who helped me launch #sissythebook in style last night in NYC at the @acehotelnewyork, especially my darling moderator and the ORIGINAL sissy, @alancummingsnaps 💖💖💖 and @amesbeckerman who helped to capture what was, without a doubt, the best night of my entire life 😭⭐️💋
