There were no real positive or uplifting representations of trans people in magazines, on television and in film. But there was something constantly telling me this is what I had to do to live in my truth, to essentially be happy. There was no other choice for me – it was either live my most authentic life or jump out of here. With the love and support of community and chosen family, I chose my life. I chose me over the industry that I loved, I chose me despite what society was telling me. There were people waiting for me, once I took the leap into this journey called Transition, standing there with open arms ready to show me love and compassion and respect. In those very crucial moments I realized that when you have an unshakeable self-love and a support system, nothing is too big to conquer. What I find now is that that I've done more since transition. I feel like when you're your true self, you create the most beautiful and honest art. I think the industry can recognize that and they have no choice but to celebrate and uplift that art on huge platforms. I'm glad that I chose me and everybody else kind of jumped on board as well.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @iamjarijones on Identity. #PROUDINMYCALVINS ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By @ryanmcginleystudios ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For further information on The Trevor Project, visit www.thetre
