My acrostic poem about #WontBeErased


Nu, I wrote an acrostic about #WontBeErased (a trans community response to the latest Trump transphobic terribleness).

We won’t be erased
Our lives matter
Now and forever 
Transgender people are vital to tikkun olam, world repair
B’tzelem Elohim, in God’s image, we are made
Each of us fully human and fully Divine
Each of us struggling towards justice, trans justice
Racial, immigration, climate, spiritual, disability, fat, queer justice
At these intersections and others we exist, persist, resist
Sisters, brothers, siblings, men, women, both, neither, others
Existed we always have, and always will
Dor v’dor, generation to generation, we generate and regenerate
