I wanted to share the story of Jocelyn. It is a story of strength, or courage, of dreams and sadly it is also a story of injustices and discrimination. Not only transgender women are discriminated daily throughout all their lives. Many Transgender people are denied jobs simply because of their sexual identity. It is time that we as a society stop judging and accept people for who they really are.
The story is part of an ongoing project with Make The Road NY, PRYDE and LGBTQ Justice Project.
