Geena Rocero's Trans TED Talk

Geena Rocero at a TED talkGeena Rocero is a name you're going to be hearing a lot of soon.  I had a long conversation with her Friday, and our transpinay sister is an activist and  model who was one of the presenters at last night's Trans 100 reveal event.

She is also the founder of a global trans rights organization called Gender Proud, which seeks to get legislation passed that will allow transgender people to change their identification to match their gender expression with having to undergo SRS or sterilization surgeries.  

This is the video of the amazing and highly praised TED talk that Geena did in Vancouver, in which she explains why she needed to come out as trans.  She received a standing ovation for it when she was done.

And how apropos it has been released on International TDOV Day.
