Last week, Mobile Engagement Manager, Freddie Bologno, came out as transgender to all 2.4 million members of their text list. To coincide with this, DoSomething is encouraging followers to use the hashtag  #Ready4Freddie, through which they hope to educate millions of young people nationwide about trans issues and promote acceptance of trans people. They're encouraging everyone to text AMA to 38383 for a Q&A with Freddie, where he will answer questions about trans issues, and people are encouraged to share why they are trans allies.
