I haven't posted in a while but thanks to all who want to educate themselves about trans issues. Kara--you rock!!
I am doing a workshop at the conference in WPB on "Heterosexism and Transgender oppression". Even though my community is very oppressed by the rigid gender binary and sexism, I feel it is a transgender person's responsibility to overcome the oppression.....usually through a spiritual life. Forgiveness, loving our enemies, loving ourselves, and having compassion through non-judgment can go along way in helping us all to overcome the oppression.
I hope to see and meet many of you at the conference!!!
