Trans Visibility Day
Today is Trans Day of Visibility. I love this simple image which reminds us that not everyone can be open about their gender for various reasons. One in five transgender people have been homeless due to their gender expression, 80% of transgender children feel unsafe in school, 59% have received verbal abuse and 41% have attempted suicide. More support is needed and cisgender people need to support and celebrate trans individuals.
Why not learn how to be a Trans Ally. Learn how you can do this in a few easy steps go to: www.glaad.org/transgender/allies.
If you are a trans trans, questioning, and otherwise gender-expansive person, know that you bring so much love + light to our world. You are needed you are valued and you are important.
