"No-one is transgender in a vacuum"

One of the most inspiring messages from Paris Lee's talk today was that if you are part of something bigger than yourself, it gives your life more meaning.

This is true, not just for the LGBT community, but for all other minority groups. "No one is transgender in a vacuum," and no one should feel alone. But no matter how much negativity the world gives you, you can kill it with positivity and understanding. Let's kill the world with kindness, people!

I am so privileged to have heard Paris Lee talk today; I think that if more people fought for not only their own identity, but for the identity of those around them, the world would be a much better place.
