  1. It’s really important for people like Caitlyn Jenner to tell her story seeing as she is such a high profile person. It’s also important to acknowledge that Caitlyn is a very privileged person who has the money for things like surgery, and also support from her family, something a lot of trans* people don’t have (and in terms of surgery, might not necessarily want). I think Jenner has opened up peoples minds and by telling us her story has given people opportunities to talk about trans* issues on a larger scale than ever before. I would really encourage people to click the link below and read Laverne Cox’s (from ‘Orange is the New Black’) comments on Caitlyn Jenner’s cover as she raises some really valid points on the diversity of trans* narratives. http://thequeerav.com/…/laverne-cox-comments-on…/ I’d also like to encourage people to read this article (http://thequeerav.com/…/keeping-up-with-bruce-jenner…/) written directly after the Diane Sawyer interview (hence the name Bruce being used and gender neutral pronouns) as it highlights just how different and complex trans* narratives really are; no two stories are the same! I’m really passionate about trans* issues and volunteer with a lot of young trans* people in Perth and I just want to say that getting to know people for who they are rather than judging them for their differences is so important. Let’s celebrate diversity, it’s such an amazing thing and we can learn so much from listening to other people’s stories! Thanks!
