"Well it gets better by being part of the community. It seems like the trans community has real issues with stepping out here in Wyoming and it’s really hard. So the group we have here in Casper, attendance is low, we have a lot trans folks in Casper, but they just don’t show their face more than they have to. And it’s by actually stepping out and being part of the community and about being a positive change for the community is where you find your own acceptance. When you can finally accept yourself, other people’s acceptance becomes much easier. And that’s probably the hardest thing for me to deal with is trying to get other trans people to step up and come out and be apart of the groups and be an active apart. But that’s the most importance, we’ve got young kids, we’ve got a 14 year old, that is the most amazing young man I have ever met in my life. And I’m so excited about all that he is going through and how courageous he is about it. His mother that is an amazing support system for all of us, not just for him, but for all of us. And you see that and you’re so encouraged. And that should be the model, that young man should be the poster child for trans community in Casper, Wyoming because he is just amazing. That is the message, that is the hope. Is to network with people like that and his mom has done so much to pave the way for him and try to knock down roadblocks for him. And that knocks down roadblocks for a lot of people. So it’s community, community, community. I still say that if the trans community, well if the LGBT community would start working more of the uh how can we help other social events, how can we volunteer our time and efforts to what you’re doing. Because it doesn’t always have to be about us. I think we get a little self-centered about our rights and our needs and that’s importance, it’s crucial, but how can we expect everyone else to jump on our bandwagon when we’re not pushing theirs too? So I just feel really strongly that as a group we need to set up to the plate and start doing our share in the communities. "
