Thanks for Joining Us for ‘Answer Time’!

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. 

Here’s how you can stay engaged:

  • Follow Freedom for All Americans’ Transgender Freedom Project here on Tumblr 
  • Get involved with your local chapter of the ACLU! The ACLU of Mississippi has been great to me and many states have their own chapters. www.aclu.org
  • Follow me on Tumblr, ‘Truthfully Malaysia’ – here! Feel free to ask me additional questions or share what’s on your mind.
  • Keep getting the word out about the need for LGBTQ-inclusive non-discrimination protections and transgender-specific education and advocacy. 

Cheers, and Happy Transgender Day of Visibility – tomorrow, March 31!

<3 Malaysia Walker

Ready to Answer Your Questions!

Hey all – I’m Malaysia Walker, and I’m ready to answer your questions as part of this #AnswerTime with @action on Tumblr and Freedom for All American’s @transgenderfreedomproject! Until 5:30pm ET I’ll be answering questions on the movement for transgender equality and sharing my experiences with you all. 

A bit about me – I work with the ACLU of Mississippi as the coordinator of the Transgender Education and Awareness Program (TEAP). Every day I work toward greater understanding for transgender Mississippians. I have a husband and a family. I attend church, and I love God. I am a tax-paying citizen. I consider myself talented. I enjoy enhancing the beauty of things. I am a beautiful black woman, and I am transgender. 

Let’s do this!!

Amazing news! The New Hampshire House has voted to pass legislation adding comprehensive non-discrimination protections for transgender people! This is a historic win, and we’re thrilled to be a founding and leading member of @FreedomNH, the campaign to pass this bill. Share this to keep the momentum going through a Senate vote, and read more on what this means: bit.ly/2G439tk

TSA takes on issue of improving transgender screening:

The National Center for Trans Equality reports that 43% of transgender adults who had flown on a plane in the past year reported reporting a negative experience such as being patted down by an officer of the wrong gender or being loudly questioned about their body parts at a checkpoint. This is unacceptable and we must work to get the word out.

We’re so proud to partner with the Tumblr @staff at @action for #ArtActionDay – and for a 2018 filled with important actions for #LGBTQ equality. Tumblr asked what kind of year we want 2018 to be – and we know that we want it to be a year of forward movement for transgender Americans from coast to coast. Check out our new video on our 2018 plans, then let us know #WhatWillYouDo for transgender equality this year!
