Transgender Awareness Week!

This week, November 14th to 20th, is Transgender Awareness Week. Organizations across the nation will be shining a light on the transgender community.

What does it mean to be transgender?  
According to UCLA's website, Transgender is "A person who lives as a member of a gender other than that expected based on anatomical sex. Sexual orientation varies and is not dependent on gender identity.*

* That's a pretty fancy definition.

Also, the word "trans"is used differently than "transgender". Trans is an umbrella term for the whole community, from trans men to trans women, and those identifying outside the binary system of masculine and feminine! If you're not sure how to refer to someone, it's best just to ask! (in a polite and complimentary way, of course :)

Now that you know a little more about the trans community, feel free to watch this YouTube Video of these ladies telling their remarkable stories!
