So…. the semester is coming to a close and unfortunately this is going to be our last post. We’ve had a good few weeks running this blog and think that there’s a lot of good content here that supports trans people. Our goal was to promote trans acceptance and highlight the social atrocities they face in the media and everyday life.
We know that there are some great people out there that just want to be accepted and the more we do to help them feel comfortable enough to come out, the better we’ll be. Now stay with me I know this sounds mushy and corny, but love makes the world go ’round and acceptance is the first step.
We love our trans brothers and sisters and know that the fight is still going, but it’s gaining more and more support every day. We like to think that means more activists will come out and more people will become accepting of differences in others.
We’ve written on a lot of topics the past 4 weeks on topics like the ‘bathroom bill’ and violence against trans people. All of which you can see in our archives.
This blog will stand as a testament to the value of trans lives. If you’re trans and reading this we want you to know that we accept you and we hope you feel that this blog has helped in recognizing your struggle and given you comfort in the fact that we care.
This has been fun guys.. see you next time.
Gigi, a transgender beauty guru from YouTube, has a documentary out a about her life and her transition. It’s very good and I highly recommend! Here’s the link to the trailer.
The organization GLAAD has recently called for a rating change from R to PG-13 for the movie about a teenage trans boy, and how his mother and grandmother advocate for him, called 3 Generations.
Though this movie has faced controversy for casting a cis-female as a trans boy, it’s a step in the right direction for media representation. This is especially important because it was made for teens and it needs to be available for them.
Join GLAAD in signing their petition here.
(BTW this exact rating change has been done for other movies with content for and about young kids, like the documentary Bully.)
A recent article published by Independent talks about how right-wing blogs are claiming that being transgender is a fad. These blogs say that “Being young and transgender has become the new hotness on the left.”
Lol yeah… of course that nonsense was shut down completely in their refutation, check it out. Here are some great tweets they used to counter that argument.
Thought I’d share with you some of the YouTubers I watch who also happen to be transgender and active members in the LGBT community. I’ve also linked their channels if ya wanna watch ’em slayyyyyyy! 🙂
(Even though Nikita has been linked to problematic Jeffree Star I still included her)
