Meet 'The Trans 100': 100 Trans People Making a Difference In a Tangible Way

The Trans 100 was released this week, and you can view it in its entirely here. Well-known folks like model Carmen Carrera and director Lana Wachowski are on there, as are dozens of people you probably haven’t heard of (but this list gives a great opportunity for that to change).

The list is all about folks that “making a difference in the day to day lives of trans people in a tangible way. That means that whatever it is they are doing, it has to be significantly related to changing things for the better in practical ways for trans people. They have to be doing it right now. Retired nominees aren’t currently doing the work, though we hope those who came after are carrying on their work… This is a list of Trans people, not allies, even if they are incredible enough to do positive work without being prompted. We are looking at how they can be included in future breakouts, though.”
