For “I AM: Trans People Speak” Project. 

Believe it or not, this is the first video I’ve ever made. If I remember correctly “do you have a youtube blog?” is listed on the DSM V for one of the symptoms of FTM disorder. Anyway, I’m done being offensive. Revel in the awkwardness…I’m sorry I look like someone just died. I always look like that.

Exploring Gender: Social Media Video Projects

poetcael73:

“Social networking and the internet have become such important parts of life, especially for those of the LGBTQ* community because sometimes we cannot feel comfortable within our own schools or families. We need support from somewhere. From Facebook to Twitter to Tumblr to YouTube, different sites allow people to communicate with others with the same interests or identities. It helps us to feel less alone, more involved and connected, to know there are people going through the same things, people who will listen and tell their own stories, giving us something to grasp onto when we feel hopeless.”

if i’m gonna get my social justice on, i might as well do it proper.

I Am: Trans People Speak is a really cool project put on by the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, wherein individuals volunteer their own stories, hopes, and identities in video, written, and audio form. The goal is to put faces and people behind trans* identities and make people see us, not a stereotype or a mystery or a fetish or anything else but the people we are. They’ve recently put more material up and are looking to expand once again, so go check it out!
