Things have gotten better. But they haven’t gotten better everywhere, and they haven’t gotten better for everyone. If you’re a person whose only issue is marriage equality, or someone living in a blue state, things are looking up. If you live somewhere else, or if you’re a transgender person, especially a trans woman of color, things are as hard as they’ve ever been, and you stand a very good chance of being unemployed, or homeless, or being on the receiving end of violence. And this cannot stand. The right to live your life free of fear shouldn’t be dependent on geography.
