I live in Kansas, so much of what I am about to share is about Kansas, but I can tell you that everything I am about to share is true in every state in America. Moms to trans youth are changing the world.
On July 12, 2010, I did a presentation for the City of Topeka Human Relations Commission for the purpose of getting them to do a town hall meeting on what it means to be transgender. On August 2nd, I did that town hall meeting with an amazing man named Matthew Blankers and Matthew’s mom.
