Jacob Blake's Transgender Cousin Responds to Anti-LGBTQ+ Threats
a Facebook livestream of the event from KUOW, a local NPR affiliate. Before delivering his remarks, Elliot introduced himself as "a trans male living in the world today," which set off the bigotry."Trans Male? What’s that?" one user commented. Another: "Omg tell me more about accepting life with your confused gender preference." Several other misgendered Elliot and employed racist language like "All Lives Matter."Last week, police shot Blake, a 29-year-old Black man in Kenosha, Wis., seven times in the back in front of his children, disabling him.
