“Stand in your truth. Never let anyone intimidate you. Continue the work to move the conversation forward, especially now with the assault on the trans community. It’s important to remember that no matter how hard others may try to stop progress, they will never succeed. They might slow it down, but justice always prevails.”

—The wonderful Olympia Dukakis (Tales Of The City, Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias) in a recent interview with Instinct magazine’s Michael Cook. Dukakis passed away last month at the age of 89. RIP.
