Standing Up to be Counted
Recently, the United States Senate heard discussions based on passing the "Equality Act." Amazingly, the only transgender person there to argue for the passage was 16 year old Stella Keating. (below)
Keating comes from near where Connie lives in Washington state (Tacoma). A state where she is legally protected from discrimination but as she pointed out, what if she decided to go to college in a state where she wasn't protected. Adding, "How is that even American?"
My only question is why was Sheila the only transgender person there? What happened to all those national organizations which are always asking for my support or money???
On the other hand, we need all the bright, brave and young trans voices we can get to further the transgender cause.
