“I was discriminated against on the job for being trans; fired, became homeless, engaged in survival sex work, became addicted to drugs, and experienced chronic sexual assault and violence while on the streets. I maintained my sanity, wasn’t killed like many of my friends, have never been incarcerated, and recognized that it’s my social responsibility to help restore honor and dignity to those like me and others who exist on the margins of society. I use media to amplify the voices of those who’ve been silenced, and lead difficult conversations around what it means to be fully liberated and how we all can actively become better allies to those in despair.”  —Ashlee Marie Preston
