|The Soulforce Equality Ride is a two month social justice bus tour that confronts political and spiritual oppression of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people. The ride began in 2006 and has visited hundreds of cities, colleges, universities, and other institutions. The 2012 ride will be the fifth tour. This year a large emphasis is being placed on intersectional justice (or the desire to practice social justice in a way that ends all oppression against all people) and community involvement. The participants of the Equality Ride are provided top notch training, transportation, housing, and food throughout the tour. Support from Hit the Road campaign virtual rider pages like this one helps to make the Soulforce Equality Ride possible.

Meisha is a 22 year old trans-female living in new york city. She moved to New York from norfolk, VA where she was raised with southern values. Growing up Meisha first realize that she was a bit different at the age of six. At the age of 16 Meisha understood that she was meant to be a female. Meisha’s journey to womanhood has not been an easy one but never the less it was a journey that she needed to take.
In Meisha’s own words
I want to be apart of this life changing opportunity and expand my views on the world around me. I also want other trans-females and males to know that it is okay to be themselves and, no matter the struggles, there will be equality for all.
