Help the Transgender Student Attacked at CSULB


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
Friday 4/29/10.

After what he has been through he could use our support.

    I am beyond outraged due to this attack. I hope the people who did this are caught quickly and dealt with harshly! This is completely disturbing. My deepest condolences to the victim! We are by your side. There can be no revenge, only justice. Wake up people! Its 2010!

  2. I have no words to describe the pain I feel inside. I read this story, and I feel a GREAT sadness for humanity, and also a great fear for our future. NO ONE deserves this. I am amazed at what people do to each other.

    The man that was attacked unfairly is a BRAVE MAN. Brave for walking the journey of change, and BRAVE for surviving such an attrosity.

    I beg him NOT TO FOLD.
    I beg him to go on….
    I ask that he remember a Great Prophet who did nothing but help people and heal people. That prophet was Jesus Christ.

    Remember how “humanity” SCREWED that up!

    YOU WILL SURVIVE THIS.
    YOU WILL WEAR THIS AS A BADGE OF COURAGE.

    REMEMBER: YOU are the good guy.
    You are loved and admired by people you never met.

    God Bless You Always My Brother,
    Brian

  3. Sending love and support. Hope you are recovering well.
    The world is full of idiots who don’t care what kind of damage they do. Let’s all stick together and try to heal as best we can.
