Talk About It: Talking about Queer/Trans suicide and depression

I recently made a video for the Talk About It campaign Original Plumbing magazine launched to talk about Queer and Trans adult suicide and depression. 

OP asked me why I decided to make a video for the TALK ABOUT IT video project.

The short answer is — I was asked. I can’t say that I would have done this without watching Amos and Rocco’s video and then being directly asked to talk about q

ueer and trans adult suicide and depression. It hurt to make this video. And as a trans person of color from Hawaii, telling doesn’t always come to me. I feel like I don’t have the right language, or the right, or I am tired of talking. And even after I saw the initial video, I didn’t feel strong enough to make my own. But then Michelle Tea whom I respect and love so much sent an email asking as well and said she recorded one too and then I felt a little more capable. I’m gonna work on asking people, if it feels like an ok thing to do, what’s going on in their hearts, in hopes that I can pass on this feeling that someone cares enough to ask and hear.
