Being a transgender person in America is not easy. People that do not readily conform to the gender identity assigned to them at birth face face marginalization, discrimination , persecution, and even death. Over 20 transgendered people were murdered in 2015, and some pools indicate that up to 41% of the transgendered population in America has considered suicide, compared to the 1.6% of the general population.
This episode follows Tiffany, a black transgender woman who ran away from home as a teenager and quickly became embroiled in the life of a sex worker. We talk to her about her past, her years of running the streets, and her new but fragile life as a health outreach coordinator at The Center. But a full time career means that Tiffany will have to go back to school, and with the little money and rent to pay, the temptation to go back to sex work is a daily battle.
I couldn’t focus at school cuz I’m bisexual and there where making fun of gay people and picking on them some part of Phoenix Arizona back then from 1997 to 2011. Theres a little better now but patients. I hope someone who reads this will pray for me to finish my GED. Yea the transgender in the video you will complete your GED and College you need to focus and practice on it and make some time to squeeze in your life no bullshit with other categories.
As far as work is concerned,there should be options.A transgender person doesn't have to be confined to sex work.I recommend a simple spirituality called Nichiren Buddhism whose practice can open options even in hopeless situations.Thanks
You've taken a horrible life situation and are trying to turn it around, that's not easy to do for anyone much less someone in your position. Kudos to you for having the courage to make a goal and sticking to it. I hope you have or are close to getting your G.E.D.
Don't ask me to accept who you want to be when you can't accept how you were born. I'm not delusional like you. I accept my gender, my male appendages, you don't. That's why you're considered freaks lol. More power to you if you wanna play dress up. But don't ask others to play along if they don't want to.
No Shade. Mama used to be FISHY boots. Idk if it’s drugs or just the lifestyle BUT she look unkempt. Tons of makeup. Very muscular. Her whole vibe now gives off Tranny. I love the girls down BUT mama needs to Mone. Get her orchiectomy and laser hair removal or acne treatments so she can wear less makeup. Shame how beauty can fade away because of Drugs and letting many different many use you. Kinda Reminds me of Octavia St. Laurent(RIP)
Rhonda Giles ,no,I don't know her,I'm 54,if she's using hopefully she finds her way ,or finds a boyfriend that would be there for her,I really don't think she is using drugs,she's beautiful, so ,far as finances,hope things get better for her,with all the transgenders posting on u tube,people are accepting of transgenders, employment shouldn't be a problem
That is because trans people are too busy doing makeup tutorials and videos whining about their social and dating problems, than to go to a university and study to actually do a productive job for our society. That is all.
wow, i appreciate the insight of thhat story. great job fusion. i live in the south and my rent is $750, which is relatively cheap consideringv rising tents here . i cant imagine how anyone makes in in new york, especially making $100 a week, that seems like so little money, god bless her.
Watchman of God So, God doesn't make mistakes? What about people born with P.A.I.S. (Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome); that would be women born with testis rather than overies? What about C.A.I.S. (Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome); these are people born with atypical sex organs? So, God created these people, but he didn't make a mistake in their design? Maybe you're right. Maybe he didn't make a mistake, and made them that way to give people a hint in the fact that he made homosexuals as well. Of course, maybe you need another hint using biology. Every human being has a Hypothalamus, but the Hypothalamus of a man is significantly larger than that of a woman's Hypothalamus. Studies show that the size of the Hypothalamus in transgendered people coincides with the gender in which they identify with. Every human is a mixed bag of genetic coding from both parents. Therefore, we all have male and female genes. Is it really so hard to fathom that a man having his mother's DNA may cause a man to find other men attractive, or a woman with her father's DNA to find women attractive?
Of course, I'm like you, I don't believe God makes mistakes because I don't believe in God. The only reason I use God here is because you brought it up.
+Larry A God don't make mistakes. God did not create LGBTQ. God created his Old Covenant and a New Covenant. The Bible strongly condemns Homosexuality in the Old Testament and the New Testament. People are always making excuses not to believe the Bible. Saying man changed it. When? Where? Who and how? We have thousands of Fragments of Manuscripts that are all saying the same thing as the Bible we have today. We have the Dead Sea Scrolls that match the Bible we have today word for word. All the books in the Bible were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls except for the book of Esther. We also have the First Century Early Apostolic Church Father's writings that match the Bible we have today. People need to stop making excuses for the flesh and start repenting and give their life to Jesus Christ. I'm telling you. I heard just about all of it. Bottom line. All those weak excuses for not believing the Bible can be explained. I'm just telling it like it is. The word of God "Bible" says to preach the word with Boldness. P.S. Try writing a perfect book encoding it with numerical codes and prophecy. It will never happen. God is good. Jesus Christ is Lord.
Notice how your sources are surveys and not statistical evidence (Thus called surveys)
Notice how he said he never knew there was something more than gay, until he found out that people are trying to be something that is 100% impossible for them to be. (Thus not being something natural unless taught by SJW faggots)
He was smoking, anyone who doesn't have respect for his or her own body does not deserve respect from anyone at all.
deadfish45films I love people with this "my body is a temple, and I shall tarnish it" mentality. Let me let you in on a little secret... You can't live forever. Everything (and I mean everything) from the food you eat to the air you breathe leads to your inevitable demise. As for cancer... well everyone has cancer cells anything can trigger them to become active. Eating meat can trigger them; drinking tapwater can trigger them; going out into the sun can trigger them even something as simple as bumping your head can trigger them. Get off your high horse, would you?
Your grammar and lack of a brain stem is what makes me not respect you, not some shitty narrow minded criteria where you apparently need to set the standard for what people do with their bodies. I know you'll probably never bother to actually learn anything, but countless psychiatrists, people with ACTUAL education and opinion that matter far more than your could ever hope to, have laid down the verdict and transgender people are doing what they must to deal with gender dysphoria. People like you who tell them it's better to die than to undergo the necessary steps and become functional and productive members of society are what's wrong with the world. I'll never understand your need to attack hose less fortunate than yourself. We all know you don't share these opinions openly in public, you're too much of a coward. But these people have step forward and endured far more than your entitled privileged ass could ever handle. Trans people make you feel uncomfortable and weak. How pathetic.
+Evan Butera Exactly, it was a rhetorical question, anyway if someone wants to damage their body chemistry, they should, Natural Selection for the win. If someone wants to kill themselves, its their choice not mine, i don't care what happens to them right? Why should we? If a fat person that i don't know says that he is happy with his weight and he is okay with various heart diseases, i should not care... So yeah, no one should really care what is going on, just let Natural Selection do its thing.
That's a random/unrelated conclusion to draw. Not surprised you can't really think logically though.. lmao.
A close friend having cancer would have an effect on my life, therefore I would care. A stranger wanting to be happier in their skin by expressing their femininity, has 0 impact on my life; therefore could care less.
