A comic I created for my school’s project. The number of discrimination and violence toward trans sisters are devastating. According to The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Projects,
In 2010, 44 percent of LGBTQH (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and HIV-affected) murder victims were trans women, and in 2009 trans women were 50 percent of murder victims. Yet trans people as a whole are only about 1 percent of the LGBTQH population. [x]
But the above statistics doesn’t mention trans women of color.
73.1% of homicide victims were LGBTQH people of color, and 53% were transgender women (13% increase since 2011).
We need to put an end to the triad of -ism, transphobic, sexism, and racism, against trans WoC.
[a note: the bracelet that the girl showed in the ending is color of transgender flag. More info can be found here.]
This is an unused commission I did a while ago about the issues that we are facing in the deaf community and how we need to improve our intersectionality. After all, everyone in our deaf community deserves to feel welcomed and included!

1930’s Teen Delinquents
i.e. life role models
I’m just gonna reblog this again because it’s one of my favorite pictures ever.
That girl in the chair seems like such a badass I bet she was the leader of the crew.
I want to write about these girls.
When I was a teenager my mother found my grandmother’s (her mother) school scrapbook. It included things like photos, notes, and a two page spread of every demerit she ever received over the course of her formal education. Each of them set aside with little tags like she was so fucking proud of them. They were all for things like, “Unladylike behavior” or, “Skirt too short” or, “refuses to listen to authority”. I loved that spread so much.
I always have to reblog this.
I’m glad my hands slipped…
