During the holidays, I like to take a break to connect with family, friends & fans. @Verizon has great deals on Black Friday to help me do that with up to 50% off my favorite Android phones like the Galaxy S8. Check out the deals at verizonwireless.com/deals #AD

So last night inspired by @chrissyteigen I asked if someone could Photoshop me into this shot of the gorgeous models from @victoriassecret's fashion show. Ask and you shall receive. I fit right in right? Thanks Chrissy for the silliness. Thanks Chloe for the shot. We need it in these challenging times.

This talk by @TravisAlabanza shook me to my core, brought back all the times I experienced street harassment, all the times I have not wanted to leave my home because it wasn't safe for me outside. This is what it's like for so many of us. I merely have shared excerpts here. Please go to Travis' page and check out the entire talk. Thank you Travis for your brilliance and your bravery. #TransIsBeautiful #Trans #gendernonbinary #gendernonconforming #love https://youtu.be/_wAwcTTOq4k

A little #Throwback for ya. Me paying homage to the legendary #JosephineBaker in 2006 and 2016. In 2006 I did my own makeup and well... in 2016 for @cosmopolitan I had a lot more help. Thanks Cosmo and to my team. I think my #BudgetBaker from 2006 still rocked it though. What do you think? #TransIsBeautiful

#aboutlastnight There are not enough pictures and videos to convey the magnitude of the power of the #GlamourWOTY event last night. The room was filled with incredible women loving, supporting and listening to one another. Women standing in our truths, power and solidarity. I was moved to tears multiple times. Thank you @glamourmag for giving me the honor of sharing the stage with 4 incredible women as first of our kind......................................
........
Ibtihaj Muhammad - first Muslim-American woman to compete in Olympics wearing hijab (she’s a fencer and she won bronze)

Katie Couric - first woman to solo anchor a network evening newscast (in 2006)

Sarah Weddington - youngest woman to argue case in front of Supreme Court (Roe V Wade)

Ruby Bridges - first girl to integrate all-white school in New Orleans in 1960 (she was six). I couldn't actually find the right words to say to Ruby Bridges the debt of gratitude I owe her and struggle. My education is the reason I am here. I was just so overwhelmed.
I had other moments where I was beyond overwhelmed and deeply honored. Thank you to all the women who shared space last night and all the women everywhere. You give me strength to continue. I am nothing without you. #TransIsBeautiful

#AndreaJenkins and #DanicaRoem ran as openly trans candidates and won last night but #AltheaGarrison came before them in the early 1990s. She is a black trans woman who served one term in the state legislature in Massachusetts though she didn't run as "openly" trans at the time. Thanks @TransGriot for our history lesson. Swipe right for more. #TransIsBeautiful

Tonight two transgender women were elected to public office. #DanicaRoem was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates. #AndreaJenkins was elected to the Minneapolis City Council. Congratulations ladies. Thank you to everyone who turned out today to let your voices be heard. We have to keep turning out and showing up. Our voices and votes matter! #TransIsBeautiful

When you are operating a camera and dancing at the same time, this is what happens when that beat speeds up. @trueneek's new song "But Why. #TransIsBeautiful

Dance is always my favorite workout. Ended my workout today by slapping on some heels and jamming to @trueneek's new song "But Why?" Check her out. #TransIsBeautiful

Trying to stretch beyond my own limitations today. It might hurt a little or a lot. But that's why they call them growing pains. #TransIsBeautiful

I feel so honored and privileged to have gotten to attend the #ACLU of Washington's Bill of Rights dinner tonight. We must support the work of the ACLU. They are doing some of the most vital work to resist the current attacks on our cival liberties and basic human rights in this country. Go to Aclu-wa.org to find out more about their work and how you can support it. Special about out to @ijeomaoluo. Thank you for the nuanced, layered intentional dialogue onstage tonight. Thank you for your brilliance and loving, criticality.

Preach Auntie O. "You can not be completely true to who you are and the purpose God gave you by trying to be everything to everybody. Thank you to everyone who is "rooting for our rise". We will continue to grow, evolve, and do what we believe to be true, right, and good for our platform and community. 💓 #OprahWinfrey #BreneBrown #LivingBrave" - #regrann

Since this headline was taken a bit out of context to be clear I am referring to men who seek out and have sex with trans women but choose to keep us a secret. I am not saying men not attracted to trans women should be. I believe we all have our preferences and that's beautiful.  But many trans women I know are far too often reduced to being sexual objects or fetishes by men who treat us as if we don't deserve to be loved in the light, out in public and integrated into their lives as worthy partners. I am here for every trans woman out there to tell you you are worthy to be loved in the light. You deserve more.  Any man who won't be seen with you in public, who won't introduce you to friends and family after an appropriate amount of time dating, is not worth your time. Those men, whatever they are going through, need to go through that without the benefit of our beauty and light in their lives. Once they have gotten themselves together spiritually, then we should give them the benefit of our company. #TransIsBeautiful, so very beautiful.  Own it, feel it, live it, love it!
