I hope you can wade through to the end. This is important. And I think it is even more important to share the first three stories in order to highlight the last one. So I’ll start in India, then proceed to Indonesia, followed by Cote d’Ivoire.
But those place names could just have easily have been Washington, DC, Indianapolis, or Charleston. This is one area where America is much less than spectacular.
The places could be anywhere where some people are considered less than human. For us transgender people that doesn’t exclude much of this planet.
The stories will set the background for the story from New York about UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and others speaking about Human Rights Day.
I caution the reader that there is violence in the first stories.
