TLDEF Celebrates Caitlyn Jenner!
On Monday, June 1, Caitlyn Jenner announced her name on the cover of Vanity Fair, the same day TLDEF celebrated 10 years of advocacy at our Freedom Awards. During our event we took a moment to congratulate Caitlin and send her our best wishes as she moves forward in the world as her authentic self.
The next morning, TLDEF’s Michael Silverman appeared on MSNBC to talk about Caitlyn’s announcement and how it will help advance transgender equality. Caitlyn’s story is an example of the skyrocketing visibility of transgender people and issues around the world. Our progress motivates us to work even harder to combat the challenges our community faces.
