Thanks, Saoirse.

I feel honored to be included and embraced by activists from the trans portion of our minority spectrum.

Like Caleb says about Marlene in the epilogue to The Good Stuff, “She’s strong, you know. She’s always been the strongest of all of us.”

Trans people have to be strong. I’m not saying LGB people don’t, just that life for some trans people can be particularly difficult right now.

Hence, the honor I feel!
