We thank the Academy for denying Avatar the Oscar for Best Film. And we especially thank the thousands across the globe who stood up in defense of diversity and tolerance. Those of you who protested today, who protested in December and who protest all forms of discrimination and gender imperialism have won. Today we can be all loud and proud. Today we are all Transgender.
You made your voices heard and the Academy heard. You made your sexuality open and free and James Cameron heard. You rejected hate and the world heard.
The Hurt Locker is anti-war and we support that cause.
We are very proud of you. We love you.
Our struggle for sexual rights, health care and education does not end today. It goes forward, stronger than ever.
