"The impacts of intoxication culture and substance use on trans culture have been overlooked in trans studies even though bar culture has played a formative role in creating trans spaces. In “Sex Change, Social Change” Viviane Namaste argues that trans activism should focus on trans people existing the furthest on the margins, specifically trans sex workers. I would like to extend Namaste’s argument by arguing for a focus on trans addicts and drug users. Trans advocacy work must be inclusive of trans addicts and drug users. There is a need for trans specific alcohol and other drug use services that is culturally specific to the concerns and needs of trans addicts and substance users."
