I have this little quirk that bothers my friends sometimes: I refuse to be completely anti-suicide. I’ve refused to join a “non-suicide” pact with them, I have philosophical disagreement with it.

I don’t want to ever put anyone through what she had to see today.
Just got off the phone with the reporter i.e. solacesf and laura lasky, reporter asked if there were any other sex workers laura helped in any way. I said I don’t name any names, but I’d make this post, if there is anyone that wants/needs to talk to the reporter, msg me and I’ll put you in contact.

So it’s kind of been a running joke today that most of us trans* folk didn’t even seem to be aware that this was Transgender Awareness Week. Also it’s been a joke that there seem to be several different weeks designated as Transgender Awareness Week, depending on your location.
