When I wrote Trans Fear: The Gender Reveal, I didn’t expect it to ‘do’ much, none of my transgender niched articles do, but I just hit 1000 claps on a single article for the first time ever and it gives me so much hope.

46 people have clapped. 46 people have read that article (I’ll assume, thank you very much). 46 people took the time to read about the trans experience and clapped for it!

Those 46 people give me hope!

Hope for the future. Hope for human rights. Hope for love!

Awareness is where change begins.
