- NEWS 12 THE BRONX - NYPD probes possible Bronx bias attack
...I immediately sent out an email to several trans bloggers (Kelli Busey at Planettransgender.com and Monica Roberts of transgriot) so they can get the word out and ensure justice for the victim in the bias attack.
My email went ignored.
Was it out of spite? I hope not. I don't know the victim in the Bronx bias attack. I'm just doing what bloggers do, that is read and react to a news story.
So what then?
Another blogger once wrote that it seems the only time
GLBT transgender activists ever seem to give a damn for their community is when that person is dead.
Jocelyn Diaz told News 12 that she was talking to a friend at the corner of Davidson Avenue and West 192nd Street at around 4:30 a.m. when a man in a group asked her for a cigarette.
“They surrounded me and he swung the bat and he was going to hit me in the face…When I put my arm up, he caught me in the arm,” Diaz told News 12.
She suffered a broken arm during the Jan. 18 attack, which was recorded on a cellphone video by one of Diaz’s friends.
So I guess because Joscelyn is still alive, she's no good to anyone?
The next time you read about a tragedy involving someone who is or was transgender on Planet Transgender or transgriot, do me a favor and remind them of the time they turned their back on a trans woman in the Bronx for being hit in the arm instead of having her head bashed in for being transgender.
