Nominations Open For The Trans 100 List

TransGriot Note:  From Antonia D'orsay the Executive Director of This is H.O.W. announcing the compiling of a Trans 100 List   

Hello, everyone!

The excitement and interest in the Trans 100 has led me to link up with Jen Richards and so the Trans 100 is officially a joint effort of and This Is H.O.W..
We've decided to focus the first year's list on the US, and we encourage other countries to start their own local lists, but we will be highlighting specific individuals from other countries.
We have developed a website form for you to use in adding your nominations to the list, and we are now starting to add those already given into the list itself.

- Nominees must be living and currently working to improve the lives of trans people.
- Nominees can be working at any scale, locally, regionally, or nationally.
- We would like to see all parts of the country represented, and especially the otherwise unsung or only locally known workers.
- We particularly encourage the addition of persons of color.
- Nominees must identify as trans.
Think of this like the Forbes list.

- Voting is anonymous.
- The list will not be ranked, and the tally will not be publicized.
- Nominees will be contacted by the editors for permission before the list is published.

Here is the link to nominate someone:
Please be sure to share this widely and let people know about it!
