I am very passionate about social justice issues, especially when it comes to LGBT rights. I have been out as a trans man for six years now, and being visible is really important to me. I feel if I am silent then people won't know we exist and know that trans people are just as "normal" as everyone else. Fighting for equal rights for all people is something I plan to do for the rest of my life, whether through being out, activism, or teaching. Hopefully I will see some of that change in my lifetime.
