Default Breaking the Ice With Friends

Aside from the “Remembrance” service being a significant part of my personal growth, it also turned out to be the “icebreaker” I have been seeking regarding sharing this part of myself with friends and family. The last few weeks have been interesting.

I publicized this event as well as the organization “Stopping the Hate” on my technology blog which is read by many of our students and faculty. So there is no hiding it now. Many I’ve talked to had no idea what “transgender” really meant. Or what kinds of “hate crimes” have been committed against transgender individuals. Or why I had an interest in it. At this point, I believe my friends and colleagues see me as primarily a supporter of “rights.”

But it has started the conversation…
