I am LaLa B Zannell. This is my planet that I have designed for all of you for two reasons. The first is to create a space for all my old supporters I have had over the many years of being a entertainer as well as a ballroom mother for many houses. So this was a place to reconnect and make new connections threw that. Second is because my face book page will not allow me to add anymore friends and it is very silly to me for me to make a whole new page. So I have no limits here on how many friends I can have. This way it keep you updated on everything I am up to in the world of me. I also wanted a space for off the supports of my team #LaLaLand with out any of you I would not be who the world has come to love. I will always do everything with love as I feel the love you all give me new and old. With out all of your love and support you have all giving me since I came into the game. So spread the world and take part of this ride on this spaceship taking us to #LaLaLand!

Wow. Bad Bunny wore a skirt on the @FallonTonight with a sweater that read "they killed Alexa, not a man with a skirt"
Alexa was transgender woman in Puerto Rico ridiculed & killed, on her birthday, by murderers who videotaped the crime & posted it on social media.
Context: A follower of mine here in Puerto Rico wrote to me saying, "When the story broke, all news agencies here referred to her as "a man in a skirt". Benito is here saying that she is more than that, her name is Alexa."
Clarification: I could find that all news outlets had that headline. I saw 3 that did.

Post Morning Therapy Reflections
To so many I may be to much or what you may say problematic or to unapologetic never knew that could be a thing but I digress. To those people I ask you how are you making this case when we have never conducted business together, I know nothing about you, you was just i my inbox praising me, or you only do not rock with my because you regional leader has lied on my name. But also to all my "Leaders" who thought they were using me by faking we going to work together or say lets talk I want to run something by you. Then you hire someone else to do what you said we was going to do together. Or you tell me my services cost to much and half of you are living better then me or would pay a cisgender or white person the money because you don't trust the leadership of me a Black Women smh. I say to you bless your heart I will never be mad because my work is still getting done. Just know next time you will be signing an NDA erasing my work is not cool, its toxic, and also takes away from my legacy.

As I said before I work hard and do it all alone I have no team or real supporters at this point Things I do not know how to do I research or take a class and learn. Even when want to pay folks because I never ask for anything for free people make excuses to why they do not have the time but fast to do it for free with someone you feel will help you get clout it's bad with so many of you. Because of this I have I have to work twice as hard to make an impact, for my work to be seen as valid,or get to my projects off the ground because everything I do come out of my pocket all while still trying to thrive. Still being humble and helping the same people who never show up for me and always keep me out of spaces and opportunities thinking that will break my spirit because along the way I still have been blessed with so many things I am still praising the Creator for. I would settle for loyalty at this point I am not in competition with none of you because I never compete where I don't compare plus I have already won. So if I have been distant, not replies to all your request for me to show up to feed your ego, stopped sending those unwarranted cashapp, Venmo, and paypal request. More then likely you are aligned with my above reflection.

I am centering myself for the next six months to finish the goals I need to be done for my brand. Which includes launching my website, photo shoot, mapping out my transitional surgeries, and meeting with my team Womanity Project to map out our fundraising goal and start the timeline for my project. I cannot thank Aurelie Harp and Lydia Darly enough how they show up in my life and we only crossed paths by an event and now we are a family. People in my life can't even do the same unless it's a favor attached to it. I have played to long with my mental health and giving people passes in my life rather it's lovers, family, friends,community, or "allies" because I just thought I had to. But what I am learning is how are you asking for support from a community so broken and trauma based and just because they giving thier fan base this false fab life on Facebook even thou we all know that is not their real reality so how can they show up for me in the ways that I need them to. Moving forward I want to be in spaces that really value me, check on me, want to support and push my goals forward, and can pour love into my life and not just take.

I know it is up to me to take my destiny in my hands people love telling that to me and I receive that and I do take ownership or that. But many of you had my help and others along the way as well so let's not set rules you do not even live by. So if you have been sending me transactional request maybe that is why it has been unread and I have been unresponsive. This is my last time addressing this and going back to my state of peace if you would like to know more about the things I am working on you can in box me and I can direct you to my email. Also please do not comment and be butt hurt by my response I am not also going to bite my tongue anyone with no one. I keep telling you mans rejection is the Creator protection thank you for always protecting. Also congratulations to the folks who are now profiting off all my amazing ideas I am seeing being done for community I hope you can put in the integrity it will take to pull it off as well. Happy Thursday!

Thank me so much Transgender Law Center for including me in your #BlackHistoryMonth profiles and so honored t be the first profiles. I encourage folks to include #BlackTransHistory because as Miss Major Griffin-Gracy tells us " We Are still Here"

We're so thrilled to be able to highlight the Black trans leaders that make the world spin. First up is the brilliant LaLa B. Zannell, a member of our national coalition. She leads the ACLU's trans justice work and is co-producing a film called LaLa's World. So grateful for you, LaLa!

These trans women are taking states to court for the right to legally change their names

"Name change bans cause trans people to be misidentified while going about their daily lives — from going to the bank to interviewing for a job.

This increases the possibility of harassment and even violence."

https://www.vox.com/identities/2020/1/27/21080255/trans-women-name-change-lawsuits Work #EishaLove

Some trans people with criminal records must legally go by their former name in 17 states. These lawsuits challenge that.

Today, the South Dakota House will vote on this bill. We are tracking the movement of this legislation and ready to take action if politicians try to legalize discrimination.

"House Bill 1057, legislation that would criminalize doctors for providing medically necessary care for transgender youth, will go to the House floor for a full chamber vote next TODAY."
