“I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.”

Page continues in the letter: “I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer. And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more grows and the more I thrive.
