I have decided to be more active and vocal about transgender issues. I am tired of transphobes trashing our community with misinformation and lies. I have responded to op-eds critical of us. I am seeking organizations that I can be actively involved in to bring about changes in the laws.

A year ago I would have commented on what some one said against our inclusion. Now I can't stad idly by while transgender people are discriminated against, beaten, and even murdered. I don't consider myself an activist but now I really don't have any choice.
