ezs note:  My God - this is a video so repellant, so utterly disgusting it absolutely beggars description.  I just sat here for 20 minutes, wondering what I should do.  Fortunately, there is a Brazilian consulate very near me in Hartford, so I decided to start a petition drive.  I will hand-deliver it when it is completed.  Please do likewise if you are near Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.

Dandara dos Santos, you are not forgotten.  And we won't let them either.

2 Transgender Women Killed in New Orleans Within 48 Hours: Police

please press:  http://time.com

ezs note:  Sadly, yet another transgender woman has been murdered.  Her name was Ciara McElveen.  While I have no doubt that members of the New Orleans Police Department do their work very hard, it all seems so bootless.  Transgender women do have a right to attend  concert, go to a bar, restaurant, or coffeeshop, or just enjoy an evening stroll without suffering the, ahem, annoyance of being raped or murdered.  Can we see what might be done more proactively?  Thanks.
