A version of my Transgender Day Of Remembrance image modified for FaceBook. Spread awareness.
Today, November 20, is the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. Today, November 20, is a time to remember those humans who have been murdered, some before they could even walk, because they "differed" from societal gender norms. Because they broke stereotypes. Because they tried to be themselves.
I have made this image so that, hopefully, someone may use it to remember this day, or to tell a friend about it. To come out, or to spread the message of tolerance. To promote education, or to reach out to someone in need.
Today is important, but it can't end here.
If we all come together, maybe we can make a better world for people who are transgender, genderqueer or any form of gender deviant. At the very least, maybe we can save a life. The life of a sibling.
Of a parent.
Of a child.
Of a relative.
Of a friend.
Of a lover.
"You know, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender - people are people."
These are the days of hope and wondeeerrrrrr *.*, and there lays a magical presents mountain of joy and joyness X3, ok, this year for me not, but I hope that for you would be a magic present mountain for you, and that these days you spend it with all your beloved and relatives *-*, seriously, you can feel the christmas spirit even you wont feel it XD. HOPE AND JOY FOR YOU!!!
X3 I feel happy that finally I made a christmas drawing, the last year I didn't make one because I was in other place, and yaaayyyy I have improved in two years!!! *really, I was thinking that I didn't improve anything XD*
[link] Yup, in the two drawings are the same chara, changed a lot, ne? now she looks like a teenager X3 I'm very proud of her because she's my first original chara ever created, her name is Kasumi, and whatever you think about her, she's not a cat, not even an elf, is a Ryugon (omg, whata horrible specie name xD), I hope you'll like it *.*
X3, Feliz Navidad, feliz navidaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad
Estos son los días de esperanza y maravillaaaasss X3, y ahi hay una gran montaña de regalos llenos de felicidad *.*, aunque no lo hay para mi, espero que para ti sí lo haya, e igual que estos días lo pases con todos tus familiares y seres queridos, porque... de verdad, sientes el espíritu navideño aunque no lo quieras! XD
X3 Me siento muy feliz de por fin haber hecho un dibujo navideño esta vez, que el año pasado no pude debido a que estaba en otro lado vacacionando, pero Waaaiiiiiii *.* he mejorado en estos dos añoooossss *de verdad, yo pensaba que no había mejorado nada!*
[link] Sip, en estos dos dibujos está el mismo personaje, cambió mucho verdad?, ahora ella se ve medio adolescentona, estoy muy orgullosa de ella porque es mi primer personaje creado en la vida XD, se llama Kasumi, y como quieran pensar de ella, no es una gata, ni mucho menos es una elfa, es una Rygon (ok, el nombre es muy cagado XD), espero les guste
So basically I saw the spirit day thing going on and thought I'd pitch in, and one of my favorite artists DestinyBlue posted this lineart today/yesterday(idk, tired) so I thought heck why not
This is supposed to represent lying about your true feelings and I know that it's an issue many people my age have to face, including myself. It's hard when you think that no one will understand your feelings, or no one will want to deal with you when your whole word comes crumbling down. So you put on a smile and hold back the tears until you can't bear it anymore. I know that feeling, and I know it gets better, especially with help. Sometimes what you really need to do is get rid of the act and tell someone close how you really feel. It helps SO MUCH. Seriously, if ANYONE is thinking about taking their lives or hurting themselves or someone around them, I'm always here to talk. Don't make a mistake you'll regret forever, just talk to someone, please.
