I had an idea that I hope some of you might be interested in:
Dave Chappelle said of transgender people’s perception in the public consciousness, “They have the longest mental gap to cross.”
I believe this is a true statement.
So, as I continue my work in building my own bridges with my “Roots” series, I would absolutely love if I could get some of you to write some pieces for a companion series I intend to call “Branches” which would (preferably) be narratives written from your perspectives in your own journeys crossing the mental gap Chappelle describes above.
These could be stories about me or just about generally getting to know, and/or coming to terms with transgender people being a part of culture.
If anyone would be willing to contribute any effort to this, I would greatly appreciate it! And if you are a blogger yourself or otherwise artistically motivated, I will ensure your work is properly attributed and celebrated in this series.
Thank you in advance to anyone who may be interested!
