Having a hard time this holiday season? If you're trans* and feeling blue this time of the year, the December Project is back for the third year in a row and is ready to make your Christmas/Yule/Solstice brighter and warmer.
The December Project was launched on December 1, 2011 as a support network for transfolks who, given that this season is a lonely, isolating one for many of us, would like someone to talk to. The Project, founded by Jennifer Finney Boylan, Helen Boyd, Mara Keisling and Dylan Scholinski, aims to: "raise the spirits of people in the trans community during what can be a difficult time of year".
Boylan elaborates on her site: "We are two trans women, a trans man, and a spouse of a trans woman. Between the four of us, we have heard many different kinds of trans narratives. If we can help you, we would be glad to do so."
See the rest of Boylan's post for more information. To everyone in the trans* and genderqueer communities, please take care of yourselves during the holidays. Remember, you are loved!
And to the December Project network: Once again, Good on you! Keep up the great work!
