"I AM: Trans People Speak" is a new video series from GLAAD and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) seeking to educate the public while also speaking to transgender youth and adults around the country. The first four videos (below) feature the stories of New York Times bestseller Professor Jennifer Finney Boylan, actress Laverne Cox, Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) attorney Noah Lewis, and performance poet Kit Yan. "The stories of everyday transgender Americans remain relatively unheard in both national and LGBT media," said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick. "These stories will not only empower members of the transgender community who rarely see relatable stories, but also educate Americans everywhere about the fact that the community is a valuable part of the fabric of our culture."
