Some of you know that my work has always been about body positivity and self love. At one point, I have learnt enough to self actualised, and able to start getting through my hurdles one by one.
I am at the point in my life to have acknowledged what I have on my plate and so I can identify them and tackle them.
Traumas can be dealt with, given an open heart, support, time and help.
However, for some of us in society, they don’t get to just do work on their own to solve stigmas and problems. They need us as a community, to help uplift them in order to feel visible, be understood, accepted and finally feel equal.
I know some of you would say, there are “bigger problems” in the world, first of all, problems are incomparable. To each thier own. Second, we can all be helpful for others only when we get to solve our problems once we love and accept ourselves first. So, if you are thinking this way, you probably have a lot of self acceptance work to do on yourself too.
On Wednesday night, I, as @drasticsocial, created an event to shine a spotlight on the LGBT community, especially my trans and non-binary friends, to give them a platform to share their thoughts experience with us in a safe environment. Consider this is a privilege, and an opportunity to learn about life that you can never imagine.
I ask you to join us and be educated on this topic, to have a difficult conversation and to learn to unlearn stigmas and stereotypes you have been putting on them like I once did.
I am guilty of being ignorant too so I strive to learn and to correct myself continuously. This is our issue to solve, not them.
