There is no shortage of irony that at an event honoring Stonewall, Gutierrez was told by a room full of LGBTQ citizens that her voice did not matter. The people in those room had made it to the White House because in 1969 at the Stonewall riots, transgender women like Sylvia Rivera refused to be told that they didn't matter. Unfortunately, nowadays, in a time when friends of mine share pictures of Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox, with a healthy dose of "Yaaas," there is no room for brave souls like Gutierrez.
