As Transgender Awareness Week comes to a close, I wanted to point something out to you. Did you know that health insurance policies and programs, including New York State Medicaid, specifically exclude transgender people like me from accessing care? This shouldn't be the case for trans and gender non-conforming people.
In recognition of Transgender Awareness Week and the Transgender Day of Rememberance, GLAAD and TheWrap spoke with 11 trans actors, producers, writers and advocates to gather perceptions of trans representation in TV and film entertainment.
Tonight's episode of Glee on Fox included a storyline for transgender student Unique (Alex Newell) regarding access to restroom facilities at her public high school. All students deserve the same opportunities to be successful, and you can find resources and ways to help support trans youth now!
