HRC Shameful Transham Day of self promotion

I have learned to value transgender advocates who work for the
good of our community.
I have come to beleive in Reverend Allyson Robinson.
When I address HRC I am speaking to forces that
DICTATE NATIONAL HRC POLICY.
Many of us, including myself, have gone beyond mere scepticism to complete disbelief and abhorrence of HRC when the TRANSGENDER day of remembrance rolls around and HRC claims to HONESTLY advocate on our behalf therefor deserving to hold observances of the TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMBERENCE.

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE GET SLAUGHTER IN THE STREET AND YOU THROW PARTIES (GALA BLACK TIE).

Read it HRC.

It does not read abdication.
HR2015
It does not read "throw a 10 spot at them and claim them on DOR.
It does not read a day of self promotion.

It Does not read DO THIS AND WE CAN FOOL THE OLD FOLKS IN CHURCH TO COUGH UP 2 MILLION IN DALLAS.

Yeah, thats right. I tell ya what. You leave us alone on the TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMERBRENCE and we just might see each other with a little more respect.

I do know one thing HRC. You sure make the job of reconciliation nearly impossible.

Thanks Kelli for this powerful piece. I have linked to the article from Queers Without Borders. We had a beautiful DOR here in Hartford. Hope all is well with you.

Thank you Kel for sending this link to Reverend Allyson Robinson's DOR address. We are honored to have Rev. Robinson as a member of Dallas Transgender Advocates and Allies.
This would have never come about by my own volition. As has happened before Soulforce's http://www.soulforce.org/ Jeff Lutes and Paige Schilt dragged me kicking and screaming from my warm house of self centered sorrow and presented me with a opportunity to be just a little more than I was yesterday. Reverend Robinson did the rest by accepting an invitation that required a leap of faith to embrace. Thank you Kel.

Dear Richard, God bless you my friend. I love your courage. I love your activism. I joined with the others for a beautiful healing DOR memorial at the Southern Methodist University. I will think of you and hold you in my prayers. Thank you for being.
