Trans Stories You Should Have Seen And Heard More About in 2012
As 2012 comes to a close, advocates and bloggers have been compiling end-of-year lists looking back at LGBT-related issues that came to wider attention in the last twelve months. There were milestones for equality, important first steps, and things that just needed to be mentioned once again in case they were missed. Several trans people and trans-related stories were included in these LGBT lists, but many more were not. Unfortunately, even more trans-related stories received little to no media attention at all this year, despite efforts to have them covered by bloggers and journalists. Below is a list of trans-related stories that you should have seen and heard more about this year.
