Not upset Dan, saddened that this was your experience. But by sharing these experiences we learn. I’m disheartened that anyone in the Trans community implied or behaved in a fashion that presumed we didn’t need the LGB community as allies. We desperately need each other, perhaps now just as much as during Stonewall. I wrote an article examining the fracture between the LGB and Trans communities attempting to navigate the fissures and indeed there is a chasm that has developed. Our perspectives may be different, but our goal is the same. Hopefully by people telling their stories, and them being received with good intention, we can shed light on why this occurred, and proceed to mend it moving forward.
Thanks for sharing your story, Dan.
