Despite the use of inappropriate terminology (an ongoing issue with @NPR stations who continue to refuse to use easily obtainable style guides @GLAAD), @wnyc, thank you for publishing my photograph and for bringing a physician onto your show who supports the health of transgender individuals, Dr. Jennifer Conti (@doctorjenn).

To answer @wnyc’s question about what transgender people and those who love them think about this action (which has since been halted by the courts), you can see the rest of the photographs from this day here.

Of course they are all @CreativeCommons licensed, enjoy.
