    This made me cry. The passion, the anger behind their voices, the idea of James and Melissa, it’s amazing. I want to take the transcription and make a poster out of it.

    The poem is really amazing. It speaks the truth it lets us know what transgenders go through. It lets us take a look into their life, and for a moment we actually feel what they do. What else can I say I love it!
