In honor of transgender remembrance day we present the following statement from Judy Virago:

“As a trans woman, the story of this video resonates pretty strongly with me. Society expects trans people and sex workers to apologize for their deviation from the norm and to explain themselves. Being cisgender is meant to be the default. So when a trans person is dating someone there are a lot of questions asked “does that mean your boyfriend is gay?” “how do you have sex?” …the kinds of questions that most women don’t get asked. This video asks no questions about the transgender woman featured and asks for no apology. She is loved, and she forgives.
