This is from a year ago. It was a talk with Helen, an MTA worker in NYC whose superiors at the time didn't think masks were necessary. A year ago this was INSANE to me. That anyone would deny anyone a MASK or act as though a MASK was controversial. And here we still are. Helen is an MTA Conductor for the NYC Subway system, an organization that is l…
 
In honor of Transgender Visibility Day, a replay of my deep-dive into the life of AK, a non-binary force of nature operating out of Asbury Park, NJ.

My friend Khy and I had a long chat. Khy Garner is tired. He was raised to be, and is, a gentleman to the core. But, he is tired. Of the loss. Of the ignorance. Of the systemic racism.
