To be a transwoman, particularly a black one, is to have such a draining identity. In an anti-black racist, transphobic, misogynist society you literally have to assert yourself at every turn. It is a constant naming of yourself. Your silence will result in your dehumanization, pain, sadness, and death. But sometimes all you want is to be quiet. To be silent and listen to the sounds of the world around you…To know you exist in its symphony.
