Kudos, Laverne Cox, for making the cover of Time on the subject of trans visibility and rights. She tells the writer:
“We are in a place now where more and more trans people want to come forward and say, ‘This is who I am.’ And more trans people are willing to tell their stories. More of us are living visibly and pursuing our dreams visibly, so people can say, ‘Oh, yeah, I know someone who is trans.’ When people have points of reference that are humanizing, that demystifies difference.”
Sounds like a very familiar civil rights struggle.
