For the first time in Orlando, organizations have come together to organize a week long series of programs and events in honor of Transgender Awareness Week! Wednesday's event will be a social media campaign called "Trans Voices". This is about having transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming voices heard in order to address the issues these communities are challenged with. You can share whatever you want in whatever format you want! Some things that could be included may be things such as feelings prior to transitioning, transitioning, people’s reactions, advice to others closeted or actively transitioning, advice on how people can be supportive, a poem or art piece etc.

Please consider sending your message, in text or video format, to OrlandoTransAwareness@gmail.com
Follow Orlando Trans Awareness to find additional ways you can become involved either in person or over social media! #LoveSupportAwareness #OrlandoTransAwareness

A group of lions are called a pride, But do you know the technical term for a group of zebra? The collective noun that describes a group of zebra is called a "dazzle". Aren't they dazzling? // photo by @jonathan_irish
