Although trans people have been on the front lines of every queer movement, all too frequently these same people are excluded and ostracized from within lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer communities. Transgender people face discrimination and oppression in parts of their lives some of us might not ever even think about. But we must all stand in solidarity with each other and work to address the barriers and oppressions faced by those in our communities.
Learn how to become a trans ally. Educate yourself on how to make a difference in your own town. Or join the fight on a state or national level. There is work to be done everywhere. We are a community – we must work together.
