Being transgender is awesome! Yes, it can also be challenging, but let's not forget to celebrate how wonderful we ALL are. The Trans Wall of Love is your way to show the world what you love about being trans, non-binary, and/or gender-expansive. Tag us in a post with a quote, image, or both about what you love about being trans or non-binary and use #genderspectrum for a chance to be featured. You can also email us your contribution at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Tuesday, November 14. We'll be posting our favorites during Trans Awareness Week!

Your gender is valid even if you don't have it all figured out. Try things on and explore. It's OK to not have all the answers. Give yourself the space and time to find what makes you feel good! Art by @frizzkidart

Beautiful artwork by @micahbazant. Gender Spectrum stands with all immigrants and especially #lgbtq Dreamers who face serious risks with the Administration's move to end #DACA. They are not a threat, but they themselves are threatened by this action. We call on Congress to pass the DREAM Act and prevent thousands of people from being deported in potentially deadly dislocations. #defenddaca#standwithdreamers#dreamact
