LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — In this short video in ASL (American Sign Language) and English subtitles, Lexie (Courtney O’Donnell) addresses the concern of some trans people who were given the misguided notion from others that trans people must “pass” and meet other criteria to be a “real” trans person.

Hello, my name is Lexie. It comes from my role in the movie “Lexie Cannes.” My real name is Courtney O’Donnell.
I want to talk about “passing.” A trans person “passes” when they are not recognized as being transgender.
I’ve been asked about those who insist that trans people MUST “pass” to be a “real” trans person.
Not true. Passing is NOT required to be transgender. Your gender ID or expression is who you are.
Don’t listen to those who say criteria must be met. They are wrong. Walk away or block people who oppress you this way. Rid yourself of those telling you how to be trans from your life.
Remember, it’s your life, your decision.
Stay alive, thanks for watching and ROCK ON! Love to all of you!
