The title of the this post is a general question that everyone should be asking themselves and others. Because a lot of people have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas which is about being with family and those you love, but a lot of transgender people can’t be with family because they were kicked out of their homes and disowned by their family because they’re transgender. If I could have only one thing for Christmas it would be that all homeless transgender people received calls from their parents inviting them back home and back into the family to live as the gender they feel and be treated as such by all members of their family and friends, but this would just extend to homeless trans people it would also extend to all transgender people who for whatever reason aren’t “out” yet. I don’t know what’s holding you back, but I really do hope that one day you find the courage to come out and say it out loud because doing so would be lift a huge weight off of you back and would free you from all of the stress and depression in your life. There is help out there all you have to do is look, but be careful of some people who offer to help only to take advantage of your situation/dilemma whatever you call it. I am also available to talk if needed and if you do want to talk to me you can feel safe knowing that what we talk about will stay between us unless you say otherwise. That is why this Christmas I want all trans people youth and adult to gather together if you don’t have a family that accepts you for you are and wants you to go back to who were. It’s time that trans people stop living in the shadows and stand up front in the light and say loud and proud, “We are here and we’re not invisible!!”, the more people that do this the better and the more trans adults that do would show trans youth that there are people out that have gone through the same thing that you’re going through right now. I don’t usually start Twitter hashtags, but if you want to get involved on twitter then use the hashtag #WeAreHere and state that you’re transgender lets do this for all the trans people the world over.
