Standing Up For Leelah
[Content Note: discusses harassment, family rejection of transgender teens, suicide, trans* erasure, and silencing tactics commonly used to stifle discussion of these matters ].
I find more and more recs for articles written by Arthur Chu in my feeds lately. This post prompted by reactions to the Tumblr’d suicide note left by transgender teen Leelah Alcorn is a particularly strong piece: Cover-ups, Concern Trolls and Suicide. Chu questions why some people want others to stop sharing Leelah’s words.
Sydney’s All About Women festival + Hoyden meetup
The All About Women festival will be held at the Sydney Opera House on Sunday 8th March 2015, with speakers including Anita Sarkeesian and Rosie Batty. I suggest we also have a Hoyden meetup that day.
