Do not be silent! Hold Ira Gray accountable.
Ira Gray is a rapist [account here] and abusive [account here] towards his partners. I’m pretty sure there are other accounts of abuse out there from his ex partners that I’m missing. Please reblog and link them.
Ira has been well respected and looked up to in many trans* spaces. Let him know this will no longer be. Please contact all organizations he is affiliated with and ask them to remove him in positions of authority as a speaker, facilitator, and a representative of gender and sexual minorities. Do NOT remain silent about this issue! He is counting on your silence to avoid all accountability and responsibility for what he has done. Let the survivors know that they have been heard and that you stand with them. Take the time to read what you can do to help here and read and reblog their open letter to Ira here.
These are the known organizations Ira Gray is currently still affiliated with. Contact them and ask them to remove him from positions of power and/or his articles they may have published.
