If you are not familiar with PFLAG Mom on Tumblr, I highly recommend you check out her blog. She is a phenomenal ally voice and a great person for insight outside of the teen/twenty-something bubble.
If you have a Facebook account and feel inclined, please “like” her post and picture. You can find a copy of the picture below (the same picture is posted on the Fight for Equality page).
Keep On Supporting Allies!
Fight for Equality - on Facebook is having a contest where you post a picture and explain what equality means to you. This is mine.
WHAT EQUALITY MEANS TO ME: this is a photo of my family. I can’t accept anything less than full equality for my cisgender daughter and my transgender son. That they both will be EQUALLY protected by law in the workplace, in their marriages,parenting, in ALL WAYS. My son’s girlfriend should never fear her employers finding out that her partner is trans. This should never affect their ability to find housing, insurance, property ownership, in the parenting of their future children. Those are my grandchildren from my daughter. Their future cousins must have the same rights as they enjoy. Equality to me is that the two children to whom I gave birth will be afforded EQUALITY- nothing more, and NOTHING LESS.
Hey… you all should go vote on the pic of me, half of art of transliness, and more of pflagmom’s family.
