"Miss Major is a black, formerly incarcerated, transgender elder. She has been an activist and advocate in her community for over forty years. She was at the Stonewall uprising in 1969, became politicized at Attica, was an original member of the first all-transgender gospel choir, and is a father, mother, grandmother, and grandfather to her own children, and to many in the transgender community.
Currently, Miss Major is the Executive Director of TGI Justice where she instills hope and a belief in a better future to the girls that are currently incarcerated and those coming home.” - from the Transgender/Intersex Justice Project website
Every queer person of my generation owes Miss Major a debt of gratitude. She needs us right now.
"This past week Miss Major’s apartment caught fire and almost all of her personal belongings were severely damaged. Thankfully, she and her pooch Moose were unharmed. She is currently looking for a new place to live, and once she is able to re-establish permanent housing, she’s going to need support to refurnish her home in addition to simply covering her monthly bills, health costs, etc.
Please help by inviting your friends and networks to join this circle, increasing your monthly donation, or making an additional one-time donation. Because we take care of our own.”

Please support Miss Major. We need her and other elder trans women of color. We need to show that we love and appreciate all that they’ve ever done for the trans community.
I’ve seen Miss Major talk. She’s amazing. We need her and trans elders like her. Help if you can.
When I’m alone I look at myself in the mirror. There was once a time I could never do that. #committing to myself #Selflove

Remember 7 year old Aiyana Stanley- Jones. Well if you don’t, please read her story. In 2010 Aiyana was sleep on the couch as her grandmother watched TV when half a dozen of Detroit’s swat team came to their home with guns drawn. Detroit police officer Joseph Weekly fired a single shot that hit Aiyana in her head and came through her neck. The entire time this tragic incident was being filmed by an A&E crew for an episode of first 48. Police Officer Joseph Weekly was the commander of this entire operation that executed Aiyana Stanley-Jones. In October 2011 Officer Joseph Weekly was indicted on an involuntary man slaughter charge. The trial started 5 days. #justiceforaiyanastanleyjones #aiyanastanleyjones #blackgirlsmatter #blackwomenmatter #iwillstandforthem
