Today is the #TransDayOfVisibility as a trans person, I want to say that TRANS MEN EXIST, TRANS WOMEN EXIST, NON-BINARY PEOPLE EXIST! We should not be berated, attacked, judged or invalidated for who we are. We deserve to take up space as much as everyone else. Happy #TDoV! 🏳️🌈
Pride Fact #6: 'Queerbaiting' is a marketing technique to imply LGBT+ themes in TV or Film, but then never actually depicting them. This is unfortunately common and is done to create intrigue and excitement in the queer audience, without the effort of writing an LGBT+ character.
