Valentine’s Day for Transgender People
Starting off with a very informative piece of John Oliver’s Last Week tonight, it’s a bit old, but it covers the transgender experience pretty spot on. Which covers some pretty harsh and horrible facts that trans people undergo in general. As you all know we’re in an election season, it’s important to arm yourselves with knowledge about LGBT rights and the candidates view points, Bernie Sanders just launched an LGBT friendly campaign ad. It’s good to know that candidates are supportive of members of the LGBT community.
