HBD to my favorite #rupaulsdragrace#superstar @peppermint247 + CONGRATULATIONS on being the first openly trans woman to create a principal leading role in a Broadway show! Loved watching you on TV and can't wait for you to take the stage
Sending my love, support & condolences to @labamby & to the family and friends of #vicckygutierrez. Spending time with the incredible women of @translatinacoalition has taught me so much about the struggles of transgender immigrants and has brought me to tears. I'm so inspired by their courage and resilience, and am devastated by our community's loss. #restinpower
I started the @CaitlynJennerFDN with the commitment to supporting grassroots organizations working on the ground to further transgender equality and the everyday life of members of the trans community. I'm thrilled today to share with you one of the foundation's first grantees: The St. John's Transgender Health Program at @wellchildorg. The team at St. John's covers it all: From mental health counseling, to legal support, to primary and preventative healthcare. They also operate on a sliding scale – and no one seeking help is ever turned away. I couldn't be more proud to support such a crucial organization. You can learn more about them, and donate, here: wellchild.org/transgender-health-program
Repost @caitlynjennerfdn ・・・ Alexandra Chandler was one of the military’s top intelligence analysts. She transitioned while working at the Defense Department, and is now running for Congress in MA’s 3rd District. . Here’s what it was like for her to transition while working a high powered, high stakes job in the US government: “I became a leader, which I had never really been at work before. And I did a lot more good for the mission than I would have ever done otherwise. And I’ll tell you why: When you can barely stand the sound of your own voice, where you can barely stand the sight of yourself, how can you properly go into a meeting and discuss the toughest problems out there and bring your best solutions to the table? You can’t. So once that was dealt with, I was so much more effective.” #superwomanwednesday
LA is still burning. To help in the relief from this disaster you can donate to the United Way of Ventura County, The Red Cross, the California Fire Foundation, and the LA Fire Department Foundation. Many thanks to the brave firefighters and first responders who are protecting us.
