Chocolates

A trans UK student has started a campaign aiming to combat anti-LGBT bullying and depression with chocolate.

The aim is to raise awareness of bullying, both transgender and LGBT, by making these diverse chocolates.

Workman is setting up her own chocolate company, but with all profits going to anti-bullying charities.

Way too many of these crimes have gone unprosecuted.

We should all be outraged.

We should all be outraged at the loss of daughters, mothers and aunties. We should all be outraged at the ongoing genocide of the First Peoples of Turtle Island, especially of our Aboriginal sisters.
