We know that when people better understand who LGBTQ people are, understanding grows. It’s so vital that we share our stories and speak out in support of the LGBTQ community – today on International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, and every day. http://bit.ly/2Iq7awD

Thank you all for joining me, Tumblr’s @action community, and Freedom for All Americans’ Transgender Freedom Project for this special #AnswerTime! I had such a great time answering all of your questions and helping folks understand a bit more about transgender equality.
Very recently I came out as trans and while I know a lot about the gay community I know only a medium amount about trans history and community, is there anywhere in particular you recommend for starting my research? I know it may not be as important but I prefer to know my roots to be aware and educated on the struggles other may face and have faced before me. Anyways thank you!
WOW! This is where the internet will be your best friend! You can find more influential trans folks in history that I probably don’t know about, LOL. Some of my favorite pioneers are Miss Major, Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, Lucy Hicks Anderson, just to name a few! Enjoy the world of knowledge that you are about to gain!
