It’s a terrible place to be, that corner they back you into, with their contortions, their lies and their own fearful minds. You find yourself there, alone, with almost no published information to support you. Perhaps others are misguided or poorly informed, but He knows the truth, and you know he knows it.
Read this https://reneejg.net/2017/02/27/how-do-you-know-if-youre-transphobic-and-what-is-to-be-done-about-it/ and know that how you feel, what you perceive, is accurate. Don’t let them gaslight you. Stay strong. Try to speak without fear. We, too, know that truth, and we support you.
“an articulation of the trauma of not having a place amongst other people”
Cut off from myself, wrenched apart, scattered into pieces, I mistook my wounds for what I was. Encouraged to live inside illusions, I gave my life to them to keep them alive and take what protection they offered.
I am a dyke coming back together after being severed and scattered, after learning to fear my own body and see it wretched and not enough, a place under constant threat I had to escape or change to survive in.

Watch the video, it’s worth the time. Words cannot capture the amount of disrespect to the women serving as panelists were subjected.. Then review this transcript to clarify what the panel speakers were trying to have heard.
This is a transcript of footage from the the Women Speak Out press conference that took place June 16th, 2016 in Tacoma, WA.
If possible, I strongly urge the reader to view the WSO footage in video form, in full or in part. The text pales in comparison to actually witnessing these women speaking out. Furthermore, video imparts a greater understanding of the the aggressive reactions that come to bear and the difficulty women have even gathering to speak on this topic.
Knowing that not everyone can or will watch the footage, it is my hope that transcription will aid in amplifying the voices of these women. I hope to provide a faithful alternative for those who find it difficult and triggering to view the emotional content of the footage, or who may find fast reference material helpful in sharing the important messages of these women.
