Strict voter ID laws disenfranchise transgender voters, as 68% of trans people do not have identification that match their gender identity and/or name.

2/ There are 1.4 million trans people of voting age. All voters should have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process.
Voter i.d. laws & uniformed workers can cause obstacles for trans voters
3/ Once trans voters know their state's I.d. requirements they may still experience problems at the polls.

I am proud to be a woman, proud to be trans, and proud to be queer.

Tonight ends #TransAwarenessWeek, and it's because of other advocates I can say the above.
I don't know where I'd be without transgender pioneers, without the queer community and its advocates, without allies who are resilient and unapologetic in their support, and without my friends who have been my rock since coming out.
We sadly live in dramatic times, and I really wish we didn't. It would be much easier and funner to not have to worry about what next month brings with this White House. I would love to be "Charlotte, that interesting woman who, if you get to know her, also happens to be trans".

I saw some ladies I follow doing this, but none of the men, so in honor of #TransAwarenessWeek, I'm offering a thread of cisplanations for any questions you may have for me about the trans experience or trans science or anything trans-related that I can answer! Ask away~
It was a huge relief. I couldn't wait to get that needle in my stomach as fast as possible, even though I was and still am pretty terrified of needles. But I still do it every week because it's so worth it not to feel dysphoria anymore.
I realize this refers to hormonal transition, because that's where my brain goes first, but in truth I had to do eight months of work *before* that, coming out to people, buying new clothes, etc., but I've blocked most of that out because it was not pleasant, I felt like a joke.
