If you want to help the trans man at CSULB that was attacked…
Confirmation received from the Director at CSULB: Violent attack against a
trans FTM student at Cal State Long Beach that happened Thursday night. The
student was attacked on his way to the bathroom. The attackers beat him,
ripped off his clothes and carved the word “IT” into his chest.
When someone is attacked it is painful, scary, and difficult to get over.
When someone is attacked because they are hated for their identity…for
simply being themselves, the horror and sense of isolation goes well beyond
a simple attack. This has not only affected him, but sent a ripple through
our community, because somehow we all know it could have been us.
Please reach out to this man and let him know he is not alone. Tell him
that for the few people that expressed their hate of him, there are hundreds
of us that support and care for him.
I will be collecting cards, messages, gifts, etc. to be given to him. I will
put a box at the front desk at the LGBT Resource Center to collect your warm
wishes. If you are a club leader or head of a department, please take the
lead and begin to circulate a card. My goal is to mail them out by next
After what he has been through he could use our support.
