Why I must come out as trans: Geena Rocero’s TEDtalk

This is an amazing story, and a really awesome TED talk. It talks about one woman’s story of self-acceptance. My favorite quote is this: ”We’re all assigned gender at birth. What I’m trying to do is have this conversation that, sometimes, that gender assignment doesn’t match. There should be a space that would allow people to self-identify. That’s a conversation that we should have with parents, with colleagues.” I love the idea that Geena opens up for questioning and explaining. Many people have no idea what it’s like to be trans, and that’s why it’s so valuable that Geena shared her story. Take a look and get inspired!

13 Things Not To Say To Your Lesbian Friend – Diversity & Equality in 2014

Hello friends! I hope that everyone had lovely holidays and a wonderful first few days of 2014. I thought I’d start off the New Year by sharing this funny article I came across (admittedly on Cosmo – yes, I read Cosmo). I liked it because: 1. it’s funny 2. it addresses taboo stuff that people don’t like to talk about, like ingrained heteronorms etc. 3. it’s a cool way to think about being more wordly and less ignorant as we all move into 2014: the year of embracing the coolness of differences!

Here it is, enjoy!
