The Sexual Freedom Project: I AM: Mycroft

Here’s another video from the I AM: Trans People Speak project of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition. Please be sure to check out their website for more information and videos of transgender individuals telling their own stories in their own words.

Mycroft identifies as an interfaith leader, a writer and artist, a life partner, and a transgender person. Mycroft experienced discrimination when it came time to do co-op work in the field as part of his college program. People would not even consider hiring him, because he is transgender. It was an eye-opening, shocking experience for him. One of the positive experiences that came out of this was it called him to be a leader in the transgender community.

How did you become a leader in your community? Was there one particular experience that changed the way you recognized and expressed your gender expression and/or sexual orientation? Can a bad experience bring unexpected rewards, financially, emotionally, educationally, spiritually? Do you have any advice for other people just coming to grips with their sexual orientation or gender identity? Is there any advice you wish you had been given at an earlier age?

We want to know what you think or hear your own story. Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express yourself. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you.
