Response to BuzzFeed Article

response to buzzfeed article

I have gotten many questions from people about a BuzzFeed article published earlier this week that focused on transgender public policy and legislative strategy. I have spent the last two days talking with lots of people individually, but I wanted to share my thoughts more broadly and clearly in a public forum. I am thankful for our community’s vigilance about monitoring what is going on in our movement and giving us feedback on it. To me, policy is among the most important ways we are making trans lives better, and I’m thankful that it matters to all of you too.
