Being an "ally" does not mean distastefully hijacking a funeral of which you're not invited - it means asking the community what THEY want and need and act accordingly
actually would make sense would be if the LAPD did a march to honor all the
unarmed women and men killed by law enforcement, not only would this be a way to
show the residents of Los Angeles their compassion for the loss of human life
at the hands of police officers – it wouldn’t be infringing on an already
established ritual of mourning without the stakeholder’s (the local trans
community and the families of deceased trans women) consent.
Is it too much to ask that the LAPD not use the loved ones we have as props in some disingenuous political campaign?
