Everyone matters: Dignity and Safety for Transgender People

17 03 2009

This video, “Everyone matters: Dignity and Safety for Transgender People”, was produced by Mass Equality with Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) and Mass Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC). Upon seeing this I was especially excited since a few weeks earlier I met Gunner Scott, the director of MTPC.

Everyone should/needs to see this video. It features and is narrated by trans people in their own words. It touches on various aspects of trans people’s experiences ranging from workplace discrimination to transphobic violence. Moreover it really drills in the message that transphobic haters don’t get – that trans people are human beings and entitled to the same rights and freedoms as everyone else. Anything less is a human rights violation.
