We must remember that the origins of Pride are rooted in a series of protests, many of which were spearheaded by Black trans women. We owe our freedoms to these women, and thus, we owe it to them to push forward accurate, intersectional representation of the LGBTQ+ community. We owe it to them to not only move beyond rainbow washing, but also beyond the whitewashing of this community and its history.
