“Millennials don’t need a guilt-trip. We are already politically active, and we’re acting out of an understanding that older people should heed: It takes more than voting to change an oppressive system.
Queer and trans people know this truth deeply. At times when neither party fought for our interests, queer and trans people created new ways to effect change. We “zapped” politicians, held die-ins, built underground networks and took care of each other. These tactics are just as important today as they have been in the past.”
