Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

Out of the mouths of babes, the old saying goes, comes pearls of wisdom. This wise youngling is Jazz, who we were first introduced to during Barbara Walters' 20/20 documentary report last year on transkids called 'My Secret Self'.

Found this YouTube video of a now 7 year old Jazz talking about being a transkid.

There's also an organization called the TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation that seeks to fund research and education on transgender issues and work to create a better future for all transkids.

That's definitely something I can get behind.

Me too Monica. Me too. I think it is our duty to ensure that the life chances of the next generation of trans people will vastly improve after our time. Sometimes it just seems like too much work. *sigh*

I agree with you. We may not see the benefits of this work and it's frustrating at times, but if we can make life easier for the transkids following behind us, then it's worth it.
