Statement Regarding Proposed Guidance on Title IX protections for Trans people

We at the Trans 100 have a stringent policy regarding political commentary and commentary which does not uplift or affirm Trans people.

We are, however, moved to make a statement condemning, strongly, stridently, and ferociously, the proposed guidance from the current Administration regarding the status of Title IX guidance relating to transgender students in US schools.

This change in policy, while it does not change the legal landscape itself nor strip rights from Trans people, places Transgender and gender non-conforming children at risk of harm, at risk of poor health, at risk of decreased well being, and sends a strong message that they are neither welcome at nor in public life and public spaces.

This is in direct opposition to the mission, goals, and ideals of The Trans 100, and we do not condone, support, nor forgive this vile action on the part of the current Administration, perceiving it as a direct attack by the United States on the lives, livelihoods, and living of Trans people in the US and abroad, veteran and civilian alike.

We encourage the participation, involvement, and effort to be elected by any and all Trans people in the United States and abroad, with the goal of improving the well being, health, and education of all American children, not just a few who meet the particular and arbitrary standards of those in power.

In Solidarity,

A. E. D’orsay
Executive Director, The Trans 100

Well, 2017 is here…

So let’s get started with making the next Trans 100.

I cannot say if there will be an event this year, but I can say it does not appear so.

This is because I personally lack the skills to make such happen. I will be rearing that error throughout the year so that we do have an event in 2018, and welcome assistance in doing so.

This year, the Trans 100 will publish 3 collectives of Excellence in Service to the Community.

We will honor North American contributions with the standard Trans 100, this year including Canada and Mexico.

We will honor International contributions, from the rest of the world.

We will honor those who have come before us, as well, in a special way that will become apparent in April, when Nominations start for it

I am running behind, and, as you can likely tell, there is much dust, but with the way things have gone, we determined that it was better to get something up and running now, than have nothing at all for another year.

I will do my best for you. Always.
