Visibility is so very powerful. Seeing individuals who reflect and represent you and your ideas and identities is so very important. I would argue it is as vital to the transgender rights movement as it is to the gay and lesbian movements. We at Metro Trans Umbrella Group value visibility. We value opportunities to be seen and to be possibility models for emerging trans persons; to take up space in our community; to be valuable and visible contributors to our community.

I made it through the first 11 minutes and 4 seconds of the Jenner-Sawyer interview.  From a societal perspective, I saw a typical interview.  The questions were exactly the inquiries Americans have been demanding for weeks now.  The answers were informative, candid, and personal.

I started performing drag over five years ago. I guess you could say it was my little in into the St. Louis LGBT Community. I was young and naïve and at the time a self-identified lesbian. I named myself “Sum Yung Wang” because my unaware, twenty-something self thought it would be funny to poke fun at my own race.

Some moments in life never lose their power. There are two moments, two short hours, that I will always, ALWAYS, remember. And both came together on the  evening of Sept. 11, 2014.

The Human Rights Campaign announced on July 30th that it would publicly support efforts to end the anti-trans “intention” of the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival (the intention is the policy to exclude trans women from the festival on the grounds that they are not womyn-born womyn). Festival organizers and supporters, including founder Lisa Vogel, continue to contend that the festival has no official policy around the exclusion of transgender women, instead clarifying that organizers have "said that this space, for this week, is intended to be for womyn who were born female, raised as girls and who continue to identify as womyn,"Vogel wrote in a Mayblog post. "This is an intention for the spirit of our gathering, rather than the focus of the festival. It is not a policy, or a ban on anyone."
