Stephanie Adds Her Voice to The Huffington Post

Over  the course of a mere two weeks, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to add my voice on the Huffington Post website:  as a new blogger in their “Gay Voices” section, and as a guest panelist on “Huff Post Live.”

For the former, I was asked by my colleagues at PFLAG to write a piece about what the importance of trans allies means to me, especially as it pertained to my decision to come out at work a few years ago.  Today, as it was then for me, the importance of allies – those individuals that advocate for and support members of a community other than their own – cannot be overstated.  You can read the entire blog by clicking here.

The producers of Huff Post Live asked me to share, once again, my experiences raising my son in a segment about being a parent who also happens to be trans.  The episode, which included other trans parents, provided a rich array of experiences that I hope you find engaging and informative.

Stephanie Speaks at Barney’s Sons & Daughters Documentary Screening Event

In my role as a Board Member of the LGBT Community Center of New York, I was honored to share the stage with a friend and fellow activist in the transgender equality movement, Mara Keisling, the Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) at a screening of the acclaimed Sons & Daughters documentary and accompanying ad campaign which featured transgender models. A truly watershed evening!
