Listening to transgender Pennsylvanians

Hi! I am the new Transgender Rights Organizer for Equality PA and I wanted to introduce myself. First let me tell you a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Iowa and moved here to Pennsylvania to work with my community as the Transgender Rights Organizer at Equality PA. As a transgender woman myself, I have always cared deeply about LGBTQ equality. That’s why I have been involved in the LGBTQ community since high school, and I am thrilled to be here to work to support transgender people in Pennsylvania.

Equality Pennsylvania and I believe that transgender people don’t just need to have a seat at the table, but that we must occupy many seats as leaders. We want to be sure that what is considered a “trans issue” is decided on by the people who are directly affected. Transgender folks should not be an addendum to the agenda. Transgender folks will be writing the agenda. As a transgender woman, this approach to working towards justice for the transgender community is personally meaningful.

I’m traveling the state on a Transgender Listening Tour, and I want to hear from you. From transgender women and men. From genderqueer, nonbinary, and agender folks. From transgender people of all genders. From transgender people of color, transgender immigrants, and transgender people from every background.

Lets have a conversation about what we as a community needs and how to make change in Pennsylvania.

Sign up here to learn more about the listening tour.

I’m listening!
