Signe Pierce is included in Nylon Magazine’s collection of Thanksgiving thoughts from the Queer community. Upon being asked what she is thankful for, Pierce said: “I’m thankful that 2017, as difficult as it has been, is the year that we’re finally seeking to hold people accountable for their actions. Things like institutionalized racism and workplace sexual harassment have had a stronghold on American society forever, but it’s taken a petty, tyrannical president with no veil for his racist, sexist behavior to get us to start saying, ‘Enough is enough.’” To read Pierce’s full statement, and the complete list of quotes, click here.
