I’m conservative, Republican and transgender. The Supreme Court should protect my rights | Opinion

●USA
‘Regardless of how the Supreme Court rules, we need states like Florida that lack LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections to pass a comprehensive statewide bill. Ultimately, we’ll all breathe easier when Congress passes The Equality Act, making these protections a lasting piece of federal law. These are the ideals our country was founded on: ensuring that every American has the right to work hard, make a living and provide for their family without worrying about being discriminated against simply for who they are, or whom they love.’

I was fired from a college job after I came out as transgender. That is wrong, and it’s encouraging to see more conservatives support equal rights for LGBTQ Americans. The Supreme court reject employment discrimination

Meet The First Transgender BJJ blackbelt

●SPORT
“I am, like Fallon, a transsexual athlete. I met Fallon when we both did the ADCC Trials in 2009. And at the time I had no idea she was transsexual, and she had no idea I was, either. I just thought she was like every other non-trans female grappler out there. Immediately I e-mailed her and was like, ‘Look, girl, I totally got your back. I’m also a trans athlete.’ And we had a little, brief conversation about it at that point.”

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is very peculiar as a hobby. It sort of immerses the practitioner deeply within a special lifestyle which is basically a subculture on it’s own.
