I have longed, for a very long time, for a space on the planet where my identity – my one-and-only, true-to-my-heart, exactly-who-I-am identity – is free to exist authentically. The history of America and the political disaster known as Kansas tell me the day is coming, but the wait is still substantial. Changes are many. At least as obvious as the positive changes, are the countless examples of spineless monsters who conjure up fears and destroy the lives of people who happen to be transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC).
That said, there is a growing and undeniable force across America that is coming to an ever-greater understanding that this is not a discussion about transgender rights. This is a discussion about human rights for TGNC human beings.
