With the holiday season approaching, a time of reflection and gratitude, I want to express my profound appreciation for your unwavering support and allyship. Your commitment to inclusivity and equity has been a beacon of hope for me and the community during some of the most politically and socially challenging times.
As we gather with loved ones to celebrate, let us also recognize that the holidays can be a difficult time for many LGBTQIA+ individuals, particularly for transgender and nonbinary people. The pressure to conform to traditional expectations, the potential for family rejection, or not having a place to call home can take a significant emotional toll.
In light of these challenges and Transgender Awareness Month coming to a close, I encourage you to consider extending your generosity and support to organizations that serve the needs of our gender-diverse community. Please visit the Spotlight section on Where to Give this Holiday Season to learn more about impactful organizations and how you can make a difference.
Together, we can create a more inclusive and supportive world for all members of our community. The top news, stories, and resources from the October of Beyond the Binary™ are here.
