Transgender people say they’re ready for the spotlight

DANIELLE ASKINI, 30: Gender Justice League executive director, a trans woman since the age of 15. She is helping launch Trans Pride, an event specifically for the transgender and gender-nonconforming community and their allies. “It’s just really important to have our own event,” Askini said. “Since we’re such a small community, it’s amazing to be able to see other people like me everywhere.”
