The thing about “negotiating your own truth,” at the end of The Punk Singer — that blew me away so much because honestly I’d never heard that precise experienced verbalized before. But it is very familiar to me.
WATCH THIS MOVIE.
[Image: Three photos. The first shows Laverne Cox, a beautiful Black trans woman with long light colored hair seated, head tilted, across from CeCe McDonald, a beautiful Black trans woman seen from behind, as they speak. The second photo is a shot of a row of prison cells. The third is a picture of CeCe McDonald speaking with the back of Laverne Cox shown.]
FREE CECE, the new documentary with Laverne Cox, explores the roles race, class and gender played in CeCe McDonald’s case. McDonald’s claim of self defense was rejected by Hennepin County prosecutors. The documentary explores the implications of CeCe’s story as a survivor, housing trans women in male prisons, and the practice of keeping trans women in solitary confinement.

What I come home from the gym to find. #puplove #Solomonforever #chicharitotoo
Maybe it’s the time of year, but more and more exes keep popping up in my life…….
Don’t let anyone, even your parents, break you. Find good people who care about you and surround yourself with just them. If you can’t find them at first, find good music and fall into it and let it hold you until they come.
I’m a pile of bones,
empty and disposable
don’t you dare fucking tell me I’m too pretty
tell me about your fear of loss
right before walking out
And how am I supposed to move? #Solomonforever
