"We walked up to Congresswoman @jenniferwexton’s office and the first thing I saw was the trans flag proudly and openly displayed next to the Virginia flag. The congresswoman said to me, 'Did you see the flag?! I think we’re the only office on the Hill with one.'" - @humanrightscampaign Regional Field Director, Narissa Rahaman. .
This is HUGE. The trans flag making an appearance in the Halls of Congress is more than just a flag on display, it is an ever-present reminder to all elected officials that we exist will not be erased.

One of the reasons @CaitlynJenner began this Foundation was to uplift stories of trans people all across the country – most especially those who are not as privileged. One of these privileges is her platform, which we use to expand upon the trans experience – not to simplify or water it down. Because at the end of the day, we are all intersectional beings with unique life experiences who can truly only speak for ourselves – all the while, working to amplify other, more marginalized voices.
This new year, we're looking forward to continuing that work. What are you looking forward to?
😍 😍 😍 celebrating what the holidays represent – love, support, and community – with our friends over at @translatinacoalition last night! So grateful to have been included and to be part of their community. One of our first ever grantees, we're thrilled to be able to continue supporting their crucial work with another $10,000 grant ✨

My autograph from @caitlynjenner from when I wrote her back in December of 2015. I also drew her a picture (I know the picture isn't that great) but at the time I admired her for coming out because I was really struggling with my sexuality and was a little scared to come out myself but I thought Caitlyn was brave for coming out as a woman to the whole world, It must of been pretty scary being famous. But now we are both out as our true self. At the time I came out as bisexual cause I was confused about my sexuality but over time I realized I was attracted to men don't get me wrong I can notice when there is a beautiful woman I'm just not sexually attracted to women. Anyways I still have my Caitlyn autograph to this day and regardless of what you think about her as a person it's special because she did not have to reply I also hope you still have my letter and drawing. Thank you Caitlyn..
