We will write letters of love and support to GiGi and will collect donations for her commissary and legal fees, all to the liberatory sounds of dj mothershiester of Anthology of Booty.
About GiGi: GiGi Thomas, a long-time DC-area social worker and community organizer, was charged and sentenced for an incident in which she took actions to save her own life. She was recently transferred to a prison in Hagerstown, MD where she is being discriminated against and harassed for being trans. GiGi is being denied access to her medications, and needs funds for her commissary and legal fees.
We hope you can join us. Together we can #FreeGiGi.
