Last month, GLAAD and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) announced the upcoming national launch of the “I AM: Trans People Speak” video campaign. The campaign has since received considerable attention from advocates and the media, and more user-created videos have been added to the campaign’s video channel. In addition to the campaign trailer, you can view some of the user-created videos below.
Laverne Cox joined the GLAAD Media Awards nominee and co-chair Janet Mock on stage at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City last Saturday to introduce GLAAD’s work in conjunction with the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition.
Opening this weekend in select theaters is the somewhat unconventional new romantic film, Musical Chairs, which is set in the world of competitive ballroom wheelchair dancing and costars transgender actress Laverne Cox.
Today the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition and GLAAD are launching a national version of the"I AM: Trans People Speak" video series, and we're calling for the public to submit their own stories.
