Wow. Alysia Harris and Aysha El Shamayleh’s poem “Hir” is just excellent. Airing on HBO’s new poetry slam series Brave New Voices (based on the festival of the same name), it’s about that trans kid in the back of the class, who is not Melissa. He is James.

      We should get Robin and Kip to fight this battel, too. They now own the President and Democrats on DADT and they can set Trans people free. Donate tonight: getequal.com

      Give from your heart. GetEqual is our MLK and they will lead us to the promised land. A place where everyone fears us.

      This is one of the most touching things I’ve ever seen. It describes my life perfectly.
