Weekly round-up and open thread
Lusana Taylor // 6 April 2015
Hello and welcome to another weekly round-up and open thread. Hopefully the bank holiday today will give you more time than usual to have a browse through these links at your leisure!
March 31st marked International Transgender Day of Visibility and, although we may be a little late in celebrating, we have made sure to include some relevant links on issues relating to rights and acceptance of transgender people.
As usual, linking does not automatically mean agreement/endorsement from The F-Word and some links may be triggering.
Playlist: Trans Day of Visibility (Autostraddle)
Note: this article is from last year but still very worth reading so we decided to include.

Instagram apologizes to woman for censoring her photo (NY Times Live)
The photo is by gaelx and is used under creative commons license. It depicts black graffiti on a plain white wall. The lettering is slightly smudged and reads ‘EVERY GIRL IS A RIOT GRRRL’ in block capitals. The lettering is accompanied by an image of a woman holding her arm up as if about to throw something. Her mouth is open as if shouting. She appears to be bare chested and may also be wearing a balaclava.
