Happy IDAHOT 2017!
In many areas buildings and iconic structures are being lit in rainbow colors to signify support for the IDAHOT.
This 2017 observance finds us not only celebrating the day in over 140 countries, but with TBLGQ people in some parts of the world under legislative and physical attacks.
We've also witnessed in the USA increased efforts by the Republican to roll back the positive advances for trans human rights pushed by the Obama Administration and simultaneously roll out anti-trans legislative attacks in the state legislatures they control.
To add an exclamation point to that last sentence, Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick (R) upset that his unjust SB 6 has been killed in the Texas House, with the sessions sine die day looming on May 29, picked this day to call for a tax money wasting special session to pass his anti-trans hate bill
Guess you forgot we have an election in Texas next year and we trans Texans vote.
We're also seeing increased resistance to the demonization of trans people as the realization sinks in that TBLGQ rights are international human rights.
But Happy IDAHOT, TransGriot readers!
