GSA Day for Gender Justice 2016

For TRUTH’s first-ever GSA Day for Gender Justice, we launched the #MyTransBodyIs campaign to challenge what conversations about trans bodies look like online. We encouraged transgender youth nationwide to take a moment to share what their body meant to them, highlighting a variety themes that included resilience, self-love/struggle, transformation of self care, beauty and absolute power. We were honored to share this experience with our community, underlining the wide collection of stories that pushed up against the expected.

Hundreds of youth shared selfies and the campaign went viral, making it into Gay Star News.

“Do you hate your body?” and other things adults asked me a lot when I was seventeen.
