The family of Irene Chavez has started a GoFundMe. Trans wrestler Nyla Rose stood up for herself during a match and gave a transphobic fan the bird. Consider giving to the National Center for Lesbian Rights this holiday season. It’s Kwanzaa and today’s principle is Ujamaa.
So family, as you know I’ve been reporting on Irene Chavez and tragic death. Her family is seeking answers and I saw this morning that they started a GoFundMe to help mitigate some costs. If you have some money to give, no amount is too small. Visit GoFundMe and search Irene Chavez and you’ll find it. Irene Chavez, we speak your name.
Our next story for today is about Nyla Rose. I haven’t been into wrestling for a long time but Nyla is a trans wrestler doing her thing in the AEW also known as All Elite Wrestling. In 2019, she became the first trans wrestler to win a major American title so she’s pretty much a legend in this world. Well last week while wrestling in Greensboro, North Carolina a transphobic fan brought a sign that read, “Nyla Rose is this guy’s dad.” The sign had an arrow pointing toward the person next to them. Without hesitation Nyla gave that fan the middle finger and the security followed suit and promptly removed the fan from the event. I’m here for all of it and Nyla’s wife caught the moment too and shared, “My wife is the strongest person I know.”
