While the Protect Your Rights group in Anchorage is posting absurd and offensive cartoon portrayals of transgender people, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition have something really worth watching, the I AM: Trans People Speak video series.
In the series, transgender men and women talk about how they are just like us (duh!) in their work, life, hobbies, and they speak of some of the struggles they face being trans.
Like the It Gets Better Project, I AM encourages you to upload your own video to help raise awareness and educate people about the transgender population.
To learn more about I AM: Trans People Speak; upload you own video or share the project with family and friends to help spread the needed education, head on over to the website at http://www.transpeoplespeak.org/
