Strength

I found this picture on TransgenderAsia:

tonette-3.jpg

It’s of Tonette Lopez, a Filipino/Asian transactivist. It’s is full of so much strength and resolve it makes me want to stand up and scream HELL YES. Read more about her here.

Rest in peace Tonette. Even a year after your death you still inspire people.
