When I first heard about the “Remove the T” petition, I was confused. We are a part of the queer community, too.
Parker explains what you can do and say to help be an ally to the trans community.
Every time I hear news of mass shooting, my reaction is the same: Why do innocent lives get taken when I am struggling to truly live?

We are psyched to have five new You Matter bloggers who will be sharing their personal stories in effort to let everyone know that they matter.
