Lots of Early Buzz for "I AM: Trans People Speak" Video Campaign
Last week GLAAD and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) announced the upcoming national launch of the "I AM: Trans People Speak" video campaign. The campaign aims to spotlight the stories of transgender Americans and their allies in an effort to educate the public about transgender issues, as well as speak to transgender youth and adults. After it was announced last week, the campaign has been receiving considerable attention from advocates and the media.
We're also really excited to share that a number of LGBT media outlets are already helping to build momentum for this groundbreaking campaign. Among them:
GLAAD and MTPC send a big thank you to those journalists who've already covered this, and we look forward to the upcoming national launch of the "I AM: Trans People Speak" campaign.
