Hey everyone! As you may know, Dan Savage recently gave a speech at the University of Chicago after being invited by the college to give a lecture on It Gets Better (for white cis men). During the speech, Dan Savage (in tandem with UChicago’s Institute of Politics) used transmisogynistic language.
Many trans students who had protested the event to begin with met with the IOP following the incident, but the college refused to apologize or prohibit transmisogynist slurs/lecturers from being featured in the future. These students created a petition to get the college’s attention, and prevent similar things from happening in the future.
Please help these students create a safer environment for DMAB trans students, and trans students of color by taking a moment to sign and boost
