Mount Holyoke Students Advocate For The Inclusion Of Transgender Students Their Women’s Colleges

This is weird because that’s my face on tumblr. But also awesome how much recognition and positive reaction this got. Proud to have been a (very small) part of starting this movement at MHC and so excited to see what happens next.
