This is my little (but tall as fuck) sister, Amber. Her name used to be jon, but she realized that deep inside she is a girl and she is one of the most beautiful girls I know. Yes, it had taken me a while to get used to the fact that instead of having a little brother to get into fights with I now have a little sister to teach me how to do my make up so well.

I just wish my dad would see her the way I do. Every time he calls me he brings up amber and how he’s soooo uncomfortable with it and starts making fun of his son and what he’s going through. And it’s like, I’m trying so fucking hard to support the both of them but it’s really hard because I can’t even call him on Christmas. He asked what Amber got for Christmas and 2 of the things were a purse and some make up. And he immediately goes

"no I’m good, I can’t ever imagine getting my SON a purse"

He feels like his son has died. But it’s just like..your son may have died but a daughter is being reborn.

I think of amber as a beautiful, spunky hilarious girl. My dad thinks of her as a rebellious cross dresser.

I love my dad but goddamn, it’s getting to be too much.

The first trailer for ‘Through Her Eyes’ -  A short film depicting the struggles and challenges of life, from the perspective of a young trans* women.

Full film coming out in late spring 2014.

It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that campaigns and films like this are not important, and that we have little to fight for.

But that is simply not the case – throughout this campaign I have highlighted just a few of the problems and encounters with transphobic abuse that the director and other crew members faced, and now – within 5 minutes of the release of our trailer.. this comment is made:

WTF! Trannys are weirdo posers why cant they just be themselves? Quit posing and just be yourself (man if penis, woman if vagina) keep these tranny fagbrains out of my skatepark no posers allowed! They just pose instead of being themselves and thats not cool!

Please, we would encourage you  - more then we can convey online – to support projects such as this, and help them to break down barriers, and create a greater level of empathy and understanding towards the trans* community.

Please do watch, and share it around in any way that you can.

Thank you

Lily & the team.

I’ve compiled this list of resources to help trans* people like myself. Even if you’re not trans* and/or can’t use any of this, please reblog for the sake of others. Thanks!
