Stories have the power to change the world: a story can move a friend to support transgender rights, sway how a politician will vote, empower others to tell their stories, and more.
At the National Center for Transgender Equality, we know that collecting and sharing stories from both transgender people and allies is critical in the push for transgender rights. The stories you share here help us encourage policymakers to change laws and policies, allow media to tell authentic stories of transgender struggles and triumphs, and help us introduce transgender people to potential allies who may not know any out trans people in their lives. In this way, these stories support the work of NCTE so that all trans people can be treated more fairly and be able to lead lives free of discrimination, violence, and harassment.
