So today is the Day of Silence for those the queer community has lost, and while I obviously think that we should show then respect and remembrance, I can’t shake the feeling that the Day of Silence just doesn’t fit the bill perfectly. Silence is just what our oppressors want! We should never be quiet! We need to make as much noise a possible and make waves! We should be remembering our fallen by not allowing their struggle to be forgotten! I just don’t think that the Day of Silence will achieve what we’re after.
