In thinking of the importance of knowing one’s status, we must also take this time to think of recent legislation made in this country and the local conversation on acceptance and inclusion of the transgender community. We here at Nebraska AIDS Project (NAP) want to affirm the dignity, value, and personhood of all our sisters and brothers in the transgender community.
We’ve decided to show our support to the trans community by joining a local advocate, Eris Koleszar, in her bathroom selfie campaign. We want the communities that NAP represents to understand our commitment to inclusion and providing safe spaces. We provide services, education, and advocacy to community members and we strive to honor and celebrate the identities of the community that we serve. We thank Eris for her work in advocating for safe spaces within our community and we stand behind her commitment to affect positive change. #shebelongs #shejustwantstopee #transwomenAREwomen
