Ed. note: This post was originally published on the Community site.

In recent years it’s started to look like trans issues are gradually moving up the agenda. Increasingly many people, both within and outside of LGBT+ communities, see themselves as trans allies and take an interest in the existence of trans people. Whether it’s following Laverne Cox on Twitter, or even turning up to see a trans person of colour tell and perform their story, to cheer them on and show support and appreciation in person, we all couldn’t be happier to show the world that we recognize the humanity of trans people and their struggle.
