I AM: Trans People Speak is a project created by the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) and sponsored by GLAAD to raise awareness about the diversity of transgender communities. It will lift the voices of transgender individuals, as well as their families, friends, and allies.
Transgender people have a wide range of interests, experiences and backgrounds that are too often ignored because of their trans identity. Together we can make a positive change in the visibility and representation of transgender people by focusing on the full individual.

http://glaad.org/amplifyyourvoice - No one should be bullied or called names simply for being who they are. Still, millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth are made to feel like they don't fit in every day; some even feel unsafe. No matter who you are, you have the power to make a difference.
