Thoughts about the ADA

It’s 2019 it’s ADA week and folks with disabilities are still having to fight for basic human rights.

I feel like I need to say that again…

It’s 2019 in the middle of ADA week and folks with disabilities can’t even get married because their services will get cut in half.

This is wrong.

ADA week should be a a celebration not a week that folks with disabilities have to fight for rights.

We should celebrate those who have disibilities all the time but this week is super special to so many in the disibility community they shouldn’t have to fight for basic human rights.

If you are black and disabled and queer your life is HELL I cant imagine what that pain is like.

This is why I raise my voice and keep reminding you that folks with disabilities don’t fall out of the equality need.

Just the thought of a person with a disability haveing to fight for sidewalks so that can get from point A to point B breaks my heart…

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
