Quite an important issue from my blogger friend Kat – I’m a few days late, but I think it should be more than one day anyway. Everybody just wants to be seen for who they are. Seen and loved. Please read and share if you can.
Today is Transgender Day of Visibility. It is a day to show support for the transgender community. It is a time to help fight transphobia by sharing information.
