When People Call A Human Being, “It”   Leave a comment

 “. . . they wanna paint you the color of smashed hymens.” Holy shit.”

Poet Kavindu “Kavi” Ade performing a spoken-word piece called “IT” at the Brave New Voices 2010. This poem deals with gender identity and anti-trans hate, and watching Ade perform is an intense, emotional experience. (WARNING! Some may find this passion offensive.)
