Happy first Sunday of 2019!!! We made it bitches! I’m so happy to be here, in the future with you. How has your first week been? I hope it was good, I hope you didn’t have to work too, too hard. I hope you got to take care of yourself. Also, today is the last day I’m legally allowed to say Merry Christmas, so if that’s your thing, Merry Christmas! Okay, let’s get some good news in our bellies this morning.

Kawasaki, who studies alongside Otaki at Utsunomiya University’s Faculty of International Studies, said she wanted “to show through our wedding photos that being lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) is normal so that those who are troubled by their sexual status can harbour hope.”
People have noticed the flag outside my office.
This is personal for me. We're talking about my family and friends.
I want everyone in the trans community to know that they are welcome and loved even in the face of this administration’s attacks. https://t.co/M9voVlzi55

+ An update to our “where can I get a gender-neutral ID?” database: you can now have a non-binary or intersex marker on your ID, or birth certificate in NYC, California, and Germany (in addition to Oregon!).
