Some of you know my work has always been about body positivity and self-love. At one point, I had learnt enough to self-actualise and was 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 to identify 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 our own to solve stigmas and problems. They need us, as a community, to help uplift them in order to feel visible, understood, accepted and finally feel equal.
Some of you would say there are “bigger problems” in the world. First of all, problems are incomparable. To each their own. Second, we can all be helpful to 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 and experiences with us in a safe environment. Consider this a privilege and an opportunity to learn about life 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 the 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 correct myself continuously. This is our issue to solve, not theirs.
Join us this Wednesday for a @DrasticSocial X @Puurr.hk event exploring SEX, GENDER & IDENTITY at 8 pm!
