There are so many trans people who have contributed so much to our society over the years, but they have always been less likely to be given credit for their own accomplishments. Even the Stonewall riots so important to LGBT history in the US, have been misrepresented to give the credit to cis gay men when that credit belongs to trans women, drag queens, homeless queer youth and more. (By the way, if you come on Tuesday evening you may get to meet Miss Major who was part of those riots, and you will get to find out some of the work she has been doing since then.) So, come on Wednesday to hear the renowned Janet Mock speak about transgender inclusivity in social justice movements.
