The system was not designed for us to be successful in the first place. It was designed to marginalize Black and Brown bodies. The oppressors who created the system are never going to give up their power. Even when there are laws that are supposed to protect us from discrimination by public services such as the police, trans women are profiled and targeted in LGBT ‘safe havens’ such as Greenwich Village and Hell’s Kitchen. Things that are considered items of safety, like condoms, are used to accuse trans women of being sex workers. Until we dismantle this broken system, I don’t see any real change happening.
