African, Trans* And Proud
A Transgender and Intersex Africa video project initiative is cranking up which backs up what I'm talking about.
Transgender and Intersex Africa is a group for transgender people who are proud to be both African and Trans*.
They also emphatically point out to their detractors that being trans or Transgenderism is not a Western concept.
As they point out, they are not copying the West. They are proud transpeople who know who they are!
As a matter of fact, some of the early pioneering European trans women such as Great Britain's April Ashley and France's Jacqueline-Charlotte Dufresnoy (AKA Coccinelle) went to Casablanca to have their surgeries done by Georges Bourou.
Enjoy the first video in the series.
