When I tell people about my work with the TG/CD community, I occasionally get responses like:
“Oh, you mean drag queens?”
“You work with transvestites?”
There’s a lot of ignorance out there and I get annoyed when people mislabel “my girls”.
The fact that there are so many identities under the transgender umbrella only adds to the confusion.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this and would love to hear YOUR thoughts on the topic:
Which “label” do you identify with?
- Transgender woman
- Something else?
Or do you not identify with ANY of these labels?
How do you feel about labels, anyway? Do you hate being labeled or do you wear your chosen label with pride?
I’d love to know, so let’s continue the conversation below!
