Nov. 12 through Nov. 19 is Transgender Awareness Week, and Nov. 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) -- a day to commemorate the memories of lives lost due to anti-transgender violence. In order to help others understand more about what it means to be transgender, and how it doesn't make people any different from those who are born in the gender they feel, GLAAD is presenting stories from transgender individuals through the I AM: Trans People Speak campaign.
