I AM: Trans People Speak

I AM: Trans People Speak is a project to raise awareness about the diversity that exists within trans communities. It gives a voice to trans individuals, as well as their families,
friends, and allies.

Together we can make our own media and continue to make a positive change in the representation of trans people. We do this by focusing on the full individual. Trans people come from a range of experiences and backgrounds, including age, race, ethnicity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
