Day 2 “Say My Name” Say My Name! Plenary


 by Lexi Adsit, Guest Blogger

Presenting on the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference

“Say My Name” is not only a hit single by Destiny’s Child, but also a very powerful and inspiring ceremony of celebrating and affirming a person’s name and preferred pronouns. “Say My Name”  allows folks from the community to have a name change within the community and have the community respect that person’s name and identity in a very safe and great way.

This is a great tool for community building along with churches or other spiritual institutions or communities. Feel free to host your own or assist the folks to help build/create new accessible “Say My Name” practices.

Here to centralize a lot of articles, dope ass blogs, and community resources into one lightning rod of a blog and also potentially write some blogs on oppressive behavior and use this a speaker for my own experiences while also helping to push and build a movement of youth empowerment. Especially with an eye towards 2012 and what we as a community want to do to make sure our voices are heard! I also welcome fellow bloggers to blog with me! Let me know if you're interested!
