Now Playing Tracks

So many students have said, trans students have said; now I can have a point of reference when I talk about who I am. My friends are like, ‘Oh, like Sophia from ‘Orange is the New Black?’’ and they’re like, ‘yeah,’ and then they just move on and it’s not an issue,” she said. “I got a letter from a young, from a trans youth’s mother who said that he transitioned because of me and because of seeing me on the show it gave him the courage to talk to his parents about who he was and they’re supportive and loving and now he’s started his transition. It’s insane. It’s really beautiful.

I originally posted this on Facebook and the story proved resonant enough that I wanted to extend its reach as far as I can. The more people it helps the less upset I am that it happened.

Guys, I just had a truly bad day. I wouldn’t normally post about it on Facebook, but I feel like the lesson…

"Treat yourself like an equal of the people you admire." This is my friend Lauren.  She’s a creative powerhouse in terms of writing, film, theater, and that sort of thing.  When I saw her post this on FB this morning, it really got in my head.  CREATIVE PEOPLE (but also other folks), ESPECIALLY WOMEN (but also dudes): Most of us have this kind of thing in our brains.  It’s hard. I know it.  So take Lauren’s words and think on them.
