More #WeAreMTPC photos from Boston Pride!

“MTPC isn’t about one person, or even one type of person … it’s about the trans community, and about people who support the basic notion that no one should face discrimination or mistreatment on the basis of their gender identity or expression.”

This week, activist and actress Laverne Cox was on the cover of TIME magazine, sharing her experiences as a trans woman of color in a society that is discriminatory and violent to her community. The Chicago Sun-Times decided to respond to this momentous occasion by reprinting a hateful, misogynist, transphobic column by Kevin D. Williamson at The National Review entitled “Laverne Cox is not a woman.”

This is not okay, and we need to fight back. Sign our petition asking the Sun-Times to apologize and do better. And share it with everyone you know.

Please share widely and sign the letter!

MTPC’s Nancy Nangeroni Makes the Trans 100 List

We are proud to announce that Nancy Nangeroni, MTPC’s own steering committee chair, was named one of this year’s Trans 100. The Trans 100 is an annual listing of 100 trans individuals who are currently active in the work of making the lives of trans people better.

“I’m humbled to be included in such great company,” Nancy says. ”Congratulations to all my coconspirators for making this movement and this community so awesome! For every one of us honored tonight, there are many more out there doing great work to advance the integrity and self-respect of persons of diverse gender expression and identity, and they all deserve recognition. I salute each and every gender activist all around the world for growing this movement so beautifully.”

As many may know, Nancy has long been an activist in the trans community. She is the cofounder of GenderTalk and GenderVision, former executive director of the International Foundation for Gender Education, and was instrumental in the founding of the Boston Transgender Day of Remembrance. Additionally, as chair of MTPC, Nancy is active in all of our efforts, including the Equal Access Bill. This honor is well earned!

In addition to Nancy, MTPC’s good friend Logan Ferraro with BAGLY was also named to the impressive list of trans leaders. You can watch the event at http://gigity.tv/event/26151/.

Congratulations to all those named to the Trans 100!
