British comedian Avery Edison (@aedison) was detained by Immigration officials at Pearson Airport last night. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have any idea what to do with trans people. Begin horribleness.
Here you go. Let’s boost the signal people. I’ll try and add details as I get them.
Making sure that everyone on the Tumblr end of things is aware of Avery Edison's situation with the Toronto Airport, who apparently has no idea how to deal with a transgendered woman and has detained her in an actual correctional facility. No update in 8 hours.
