In honor of Transgender Day of Visibility, being observed today, GLAAD has launched a new campaign, #ILoveBeinhTransbc, spotlighting the positive aspects of transgender people's experience.

The campaign includes a video with several well-known trans people explaining why they love being transgender and a custom website, ILoveBeingTransBC.com, where all trans readers can submit their own videos and photos explaining this. Submissions that are featured on the website will be automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip to march with GLAAD during New York Pride this June.

The video features Shea Diamond, D'Lo, Scott Turner Schofield, Sir Knight, Peche Di, Jazzmun Crayton, Alok, Devin Lowe, Gio Bravo, and Micah Prussack. "I love being trans because I'm not forced to be in a box where I don't belong," says singer-songwriter Diamond. Schofield, an actor and writer, says trans people have figured out who they are, something other people spend their lives on, and can be a source of information on this. "It is a privilege to be able to teach people just by existing," he says.

Watch the video below.

She is a political junkie who thinks even the wonkiest details are fascinating, and she always loves to see political candidates who are groundbreaking in some way. She enjoys writing about other topics as well, including religion (she’s interested in what people believe and why), literature, theater, and film. Trudy is a proud “old movie weirdo” and loves the Hollywood films of the 1930s and ’40s above all others. Other interests include classic rock music (Bruce Springsteen rules!) and history. Oh, and she was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 1998 and won two games. Not up there with Amy Schneider, but Trudy still takes pride in this achievement.
