McCreath reacts to Orlando, avoids St John's LGBT event

No, you did not see me at the vigil tonight. Sadly, I do not feel welcome or comfortable in a room full of many so-called and self-proclaimed Newfoundland gay/lesbian 'community leaders' ....most of whom have no respect for me or all the trail-blazing I have done for trans rights and trans visibility in NL and many other parts of Canada over the past 10 years.

But don't let that give anyone the impression that I am not extremely devastated and upset with what happened in Orlando. The gay bar shooting and the Christina Grimmie shooting have both made me angry and upset, and I choose to mourn and reflect in the comfort of my private space here at home..... ‪#‎nlpoli‬ ‪#‎grimmie‬ ‪#‎orlando‬

Jennifer, if they don't make you feel welcome or comfortable when you enter a room then they have the problem, not you. You have every right to be respected and made feel welcome and comfortable in a room as anyone else does. Don't let anyone make you feel that way.
