This afternoon I found out that Matt Kailey died last Saturday. Â Matt was the blogger who created Tranifesto, a great source of gender related information, especially for trans masculine identified people. Â I didn’t know him in life, only virtually. Â We had an email exchange and some in the comments on his blog. Â I liked the calm, generous voice his writing had and imagined that he was probably a lot like that in life. Â I know from what others have said that he was a well known and respected activist and educator in his community in Colorado. Â I know he’ll be missed by a lot of people.
I don’t know what will become of Tranifesto, but I hope it remains available in some fashion. Â I’ve sent a lot of people there for information and have gone there myself over and over again. Â I’ve always seen his blog as an oasis of order and useful information.
I’ve met some friends online, bloggers, writers, activists, and consider them brothers. Â Matt was more like an uncle – smart, experienced, patient and very willing to pass on what he knew.
Thank you again, Matt.
