It gives a voice to transgender individuals, as well as their families, friends, and allies. Together we can make our own media and continue to make a positive change in the representation of transgender people. We do this by focusing on the full individual. Transgender people come from a range of experiences and backgrounds, including age, race, ethnicity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. This is the space to empower yourself and your community by sharing your own experiences.
