Paris Is Burning

first time i watched this i was a little baby trans boy and i cried when the last few minutes mentioned venus’ death because i was scared that would be mine too. i am turning eighteen this year and i am going on testosterone and i am so happy to say that things are easier for many than i had thought. but every day black trans women are murdered. despite my own privilege i am desperately sad to see how similar many of the things within this documentary are still the same. we fight every day just being in the world and we have made so much progress and we will make so much more. for the children of today and for their lives tomorrow.
