The LGBTQ has many sub-communities within itself, and often while speaking on the whole, many supporters forget who all is included. One such group that seems to be sidelines in the “T.” Transgendered youth have struggles just like the rest of us, and their own plight is not something to take lightly. The discrimination transgendered people experience is part of our own, and unfortunately, as of late, I meet many people in the LGBTQ community who refuse to believe that transgendered individuals are the same as themselves.
With that in mind, I have been lucky enough to encounter two individuals who, despite the obvious lack of support regarding their gender identity, manage to keep a wonderful outlook on life. They are women. They were born women, and they will always be women. Unfortunately, whatever divine power there may be decided that they would be born sexually male, and due to this minor inconvenience, it has caused them to work through some of the most difficult and rewarding experiences of their entire lives. I wouldn’t know what all they experience, being a gay man who identifies as male, but I’m curious to see what actually goes on in their lives.
