Monica Roberts of Houston, Texas, passed away earlier this week. Monica was the founder of Transgriot and a founder of NTAC. A winner of many awards, she was a strong advocate of trans people of color in particular.

A spectacular user of written and spoken words, her power for good will be sorely missed as so many power-hungry bigots try to drive us all out of legal and actual existence.

Dear Robyn:
Thank you for posting this.   
I recall reading some of the publications and discussions submitted Monica Roberts

May she Rest In Peace.   She will be missed as an advocate of all transgender people, no matter what race or color they are.

Again, thank you for sharing and posting.
HUGS,
Danielle
