Happy Birthday Mandy!

Could not let today pass without giving a TransGriot birthday shout out to one of the women I look up to in the activist community and one righteous human rights warrior in Mandy Carter.

I have much love and respect for her, have sought her advice a time or two on some issues and when I lived in Louisville even had the honor and pleasure of her company for dinner at the house.  

She was our keynote speaker for our first Transsistahs-Transbrothas Conference in 2005 and one of the joys of my recent trip to Washington DC was getting to see her at the 2011 NBJC Out On The Hill Conference.

So for all you do for our community Mandy and the advancement of human rights, thank you.

Happy birthday Mandy, and may you have many more!.
