The post revealed a video from a protest in New Orleans, and the caption said, “We chanted ‘Black Trans Lives Matter,’ ‘Black Queer Lives Matter,’ ‘All Black Lives Matter.’ As a black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter, but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added.”

“But the revolution is not about appeal. It is about demanding what should have been given to us from the beginning.
