Jayne County talking about trans and queer life in New York City in the 1960s. She explains the “sex searches” police would conduct on drag queens and trans women during gay bar raids, making people expose their genitals to the police.
Can we deal with the fact that ACT (AIDS Committee of Toronto — the largest ASO in Toronto, and one of the oldest in the world, I think) has ABSOLUTELY NO PROGRAMMING for trans women but is starting a Trans Men’s Group?
Just a reminder, 27% of trans women in Canada are HIV-positive (according to PHAC), and by what statistics are currently available we can estimate that less than 3% of trans men are.
This is what transmisogyny looks like.
