Buzzfeed has just posted a quick tutorial on 

"Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Transgender People But Were Afraid To Ask"

My good friend informed me they used my image on one of their slides.

I wouldn’t exactly say these slides cover EVERYTHING, but I’m happy to see more conversations happening and more points of view on how to work with language. 

We need more people doing this whether they are trans or cis. 

Good work Buzz Feed!
