International Transgender Day of Visibility

The lovely Elin Gregory wrote this on her blog today so I’m sure she won’t object to me sharing it:

By clicking on the picture above you will be taken to the website of the Human Rights Campaign and a page of information, resources and interviews for and by and about transgender people worldwide.

Some of it is very interesting and uplifting, some of it is heartbreaking, all of it is worth watching/reading.

And it’s a really good reminder that, while today is THE day to look across at our transgender friends and say “I see you and you’re admirable,” we should be putting the suggestions for how to be a good ally into practice EVERY day.

Of course there will be times when we fall short, through ignorance or thoughtlessness, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try again to do better.
