Have you experienced discrimination?

Eli, Omaha

I am transgender/indigenous. I experienced discrimination b4 coming out because I have always been a member of the LGBTQ+ community but after coming out it was horrible. I am out/visible because young folks like me need to know we deserve dignity/respect.
