Things are really tough here for trans people right now, Florence. I don’t know what to do other than to keep raising awareness about Trump’s war on trans.

Most people in the US don’t approve of it. But then, most people in the US didn’t vote for Trump.

The way the electoral system is rigged right now, progressive people are going to have to turn out in disproportionate numbers at the polls this November if we want anything to change.

Those of us who can are busy telling stories and asking people to care.

Will it be enough?

Like you, I try not to think about it too much. I’d spend all my time in tears.
