shyheart632 this almost made me cry..
It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that campaigns and films like this are not important, and that we have little to fight for.
But that is simply not the case – throughout this campaign I have highlighted just a few of the problems and encounters with transphobic abuse that the director and other crew members faced, and now – within 5 minutes of the release of our trailer.. this comment is made:
“WTF! Trannys are weirdo posers why cant they just be themselves? Quit posing and just be yourself (man if penis, woman if vagina) keep these tranny fagbrains out of my skatepark no posers allowed! They just pose instead of being themselves and thats not cool!”
Please, we would encourage you - more then we can convey online – to support projects such as this, and help them to break down barriers, and create a greater level of empathy and understanding towards the trans* community.
Please do watch, and share it around in any way that you can.
Lily & the team.
