New V Day
Well, it seem that both Kay and I have been selected to participate in the new production of the Vagina Monologues here at good old Valdosta State; I am so proud of her. We had our first cast meeting last night and they have selected 23 to be in the production. I like the ideas of our director and am expecting a great weekend.
This is a picture from last year's performance. I am so excited to be a part of these productions. As a Trans Woman, I am always excited in educating and advocating for stopping all violence against women everywhere; be it in abusive relationships, or just for being who one happens to be; gay, lesbian or transsexual or gender queer or gender questioning. We are all humans who should be given respect, acceptance and love for whoever we are or from those we meet.
I find that the friendships that I make as part of each cast last a long time, and I hope that by being who I am, others will come to know that I have the same wants, feelings, needs and expectations from others that I have extended to them. I hope that by getting to know me, they will go back to their classrooms and home towns and speak up for us whenever they hear anyone spew hate and ignorance or condone violence towards us.
