Have you heard of Janet Mock?

Well, you do now – and she’s vitaminW’s woman of the year 2013, and well deserved it is too.  A lot of trans people who “pass for cisgender” well enough tend to want to disappear, partly because societal pressures against them are so huge.  Thank-you Janet for your personal sacrifice in relinquishing this privilege and your personal drive to make things better for everyone.

“When we as a society care, and center the most oppressed and marginalized in our communities…we tend to be a stronger society.” – Janet Mock
