🏆Meet our 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient 🏆

🏳️‍⚧️We are thrilled to introduce Diamond Collier.

Diamond Stylz has been one of the long-standing voices of the millennial black trans community. She started her activism at 18 when she won a First Amendment rights lawsuit against the Indianapolis Public School system in 1999, a victory that allowed her to go to the prom in a gender-affirming gown instead of a tuxedo setting a pro-trans precedence for future cases. At 19, she was the first openly trans woman to attend the legendary HBCU, Jackson State University, where she honed her passion for activism and education. Since 2008, she has used social media platforms like YouTube to document and archives trans leadership and cultural event around the globe. She has produced and appeared on CNN, ABC, BET, and Hulu being recently featured on the GLAAD award-winning documentary: PRIDE To Be Seen. In partnership with Insider Inc., she was the lead consultant in creating the largest most comprehensive database documenting trans homicides and their outcomes to date. This project led to the reopening and convictions in multiple murder cases, winning the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award for Journalism and Scripps Howard Award finalist nomination. Currently, Diamond is the Executive Director of Black Trans Women Inc., a national non-profit that is led by Black trans women focused on social advocacy, positive visibility, and building strong leadership among Black trans advocates, activists, and our allies. Diamond is the host and producer of the award-winning podcast Marsha's Plate, a weekly exploration of politics and pop culture from a trans-pro-black feminist lens that has garnered over 1.5 million streams.

Word on the Socials

Social Media Content

Trigger Warning: Video contains the use of a slur.

An 11 year old whose homeschooled by parents surely knows a lot about Tr@nnies and jailbait. How? Could not have learned this type of language in a public school setting, so the question to the James family, who's grooming children? This clip has so many issues and we hope when they are older, this child can see how harmful the acts of parents can be when they use their child to send hateful misinformed messages.

In the bustling Ostanian city of Berlint, Twilight dons the alias of "Loid Forger," an esteemed psychiatrist. However, his true intention is to gather intelligence on prominent politician Donovan Desmond, who only appears rarely in public at his sons' school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Enlisting the help of unmarried city hall clerk Yor Briar to act as his wife and adopting the curious six-year-old orphan Anya as his daughter, Loid enacts his master plan. He will enroll Anya in Eden Academy, where Loid hopes she will excel and give him the opportunity to meet Donovan without arousing suspicion. 

Unfortunately for Loid, even a man of his talents has trouble playing the figure of a loving father and husband. And just like Loid is hiding his true identity, Yor—who is an underground assassin known as "Thorn Princess"—and Anya—an esper who can read people's minds—have no plans to disclose their own secrets either. Although this picture-perfect family is founded on deception, the Forgers gradually come to understand that the love they share for one another trumps all else.
