THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — With almost 24,000 “likes” for the Wipe Out Transphobia’s (WOT) Facebook page, probably half of you are already regular readers of its contents and its corresponding website.
Spawned from ideas from her friends, Emma Bailey started WOT as a Facebook page to help ‘overcome some of the inequalities trans people face’. From there, it took off in popularity and a website soon followed. Indeed, the social media contents appears fresh and updated — a key to success for any social media/webpage. Bailey says she has an admin team in place to ensure it remains that way.
Her ultimate goal is to be able to educate governments, educators, law enforcement personnel and health care administrators on an international level.
While the FB page is familiar to me, I took a look at the website. While it is somewhat of a work-in-progress, two things stood out that really impressed me:
First was the Myth Buster — ‘is our way of setting straight the record in relation to trans people and the myths that are regularly perpetuated about them’ Myth Buster – Wipe Out Transphobia. Impressive! A good place to send misguided cis people.
Second was the “I am what I am” photo campaign. A really great idea to get the community’s partipication in their future. http://www.wipeouttransphobia.com/trans-glossary/i-am-what-i-am/
I liked the site so much I decided to add it to my own “recommended organizations” list! WOT is extremely worthy of checking out if you haven’t already done so.
