What the Upcoming Election in Georgia Means


This presidential election meant a lot to many Americans. While most Americans were throwing themselves at the chance to vote, my mom didn’t. At least not right away.

My mom came to the United States from Iran, where one’s voice and vote are not nearly as momentous as they are here. Whatever politicians want will happen anyway, at least in Iran. But even since becoming an American, my mom has never been troubled to vote, which troubles me.

In Memory of our Trans Sisters…


What a year 2020 has been.

I serve on the board of the ERA Coalition, a coalition big enough to include trans women of color who bear the brunt of our country’s misogyny, racism and transphobia. Today we mark the 21st International Day of Transgender Remembrance, the annual day we honor the memory of the transgender and gender-nonconforming people whose lives were viciously cut short due to anti-trans violence. This year, 34 people were killed, a record high, and the majority of whom were Black and Brown transgender women. This is heartbreaking. It needs to stop.
