Dear Cis People:

I see the disgusted looks on some of your faces since my cis boyfriend (with my permission) told you I am trans. I hear the condescension when some of you talk to me. My chatty Cathy hippie boyfriend can’t believe it’s because of the disclosure but I know. And stop flirting with him, girls and gay guys. Me being trans doesn’t mean I don’t count as his boyfriend. I am proud to be trans but now that you treat me this way and now misgender me makes me wish I never came out.

Transgender 101:

Trans issues are complicated, so we thought we’d put together a quick, ten minute demonstration on the basics of gender.

A motion graphic I made, amazingly enough, using photoshop, a little AFX, and keynote of all things. I think I’m going to do more videos like this one.
