LGBT Community On Alert After Transgender Woman Found Dead (6/10/14)

LGBT Community On Alert After Transgender Woman Found Dead

The death of Kandy Hall is one of many deaths that have occurred within the Transgender community. East Baltimore is one of many places where these murders are occurring. Some of which have and have not been reported. I do not say this to pour salt into the wounds that are being scrapped into our community but rather to acknowledge that this will be a very painful process to work through, and in no place throughout that process should any of us ignore the anger and disgust that we feel towards these killings. If anything I believe we should embrace those feelings and use it to launch us into forward action (while also acknowledging our limitations and needs for self-care along the way). Some of us may have been taken from the fight for justice yet I wish for all of us to know that We are not defeated, nor are We voiceless. We are Stronger Beyond Measure, and this will NOT Continue on Forever.

Please be on guard and aware Bmore Kin ❤ I hope they find her killer and the justice that needs to come with them. May her killers find peace within themselves for only a disruption in one’s own energies could drive one to hate so much and feel they must kill another. Even more so Peace and Blessings to her and her family ❤

Silent Sirens (poetry)

“Silent Sirens” by Mykell Hatcher-McLarin (4/1/14)

All of ya’ll are Sons of Bitches!
Or is it that y’all are Sons of Snitches
who didn’t know that Snitches get Stitches?
Shoot out in the Graveyard…
Come here to Die because we didn’t want to know what the Truth is.
And What is the Truth?
That we Don’t Trust the Law
and we fight amongst ourselves Raw
wit guns and knives in our pockets.
“Yo check this! Watch this!
I’m bout to take this Nigga out
Real Quick.”
And we all Stay Silent
like a tombstones of the Short Lived.
And they all Stay Silent
like Blue and Red lights with No Sirens.
Is that why we Don’t Smile and shit?
Busy concentrating on how to Keep Niggas Quiet.
Well we got Jail or the Morgue.
Or is that just what we keep hearing about the heights we can Soar?
I know I’d like to hear more
about how when I walk out the house
Not Only The Gavel or the Ground is on the other side of that door.
Would we Know what it sounds like to have Choices
that Didn’t lead to the Incarceration or Execution of our Voices?
Also Speak of Us
who are still Alive and Free
trying to Extend our Life Expectancy.
Maybe the Sound may be Refreshing.
Stop planting Tombstones.
Turn on the Sirens.
Save Us and Save Each Other
Who are Striving to Break the Silence.

They judge you for the type of music you listen to, for the type of clothes you wear, for the color of your skin, this is a cruel world…but with people like us, we create a space and hope for the world that it will change. The moral arc of the universe bends towards justice but it doesn’t bend on its own.

It is a sad day, but I am glad that we can create a community of solidarity and empowerment to continue the hard task ahead towards equal justice.

Fight for Dreams to Come True (1/6/24)

We gotta fight for the dreams we want in life. The dreams we want for ourselves.

Do not settle! Do NOT settle!

It’s scary, it’s difficult, it’s a challenge but we gotta overcome, persevere, fight if we really want the best for ourselves; if we really want what we want.

No excuses. No victimization. No deprivation.

Let’s give our dreams our all! ❤

With Love and Affirmation,

Myke
