Hey there, just a little note… transgender is an adjective not a noun. So it’s ‘transgender people’ not ‘transgenders’. I realise this might sound trivial, petty even. But such minor linguistic distinctions are weaponised by transphobes to delegitimise us trans folk. Using ‘transwoman’ instead of ‘trans woman’ for example allows to position women like me as something other. Not as ‘real’ women.

Thanks.
