Metro Weekly

Group releases inaugural “The Trans 100” list, including many with D.C. ties

“If you recognize that this project is incomplete, and yet still has much to offer, then we trust you will find what we did: an awe inspiring collection of one hundred amazing people doing important work. Not the only hundred. Not the hundred you agree with. But one hundred that reveal a cross section of trans people active in the United States right now, that indicate the breadth and depth of the work being done by and for the community.”

Jen Richards, co-director of “The Trans 100,” a project of the We Happy Trans website and This Is How Transforming Lives, and sponsored by GLAAD, in announcing the inaugural list. Included in the list of 100 transgender activists, experts and others are several who are well known in D.C. for work at either the local or national level, or both, including Allyson Robinson, Earline Budd, Diego Sanchez, Ruby Corado and Mara Keisling.
