On Our Radar: Geena Rocero on TED

Geena Rocero, a Filipina transgender model, talks about her powerful story at the most recent TED conference. 

We love this part in particular: 

“All of us are put in boxes by our family, by our religion, by our society, our moment in history, even our own bodies. Some people have the courage to break free, not to accept the limitations imposed by the color of their skin or by the beliefs by those that sit around them. Those people are always a threat to the status quo to what is considered acceptable." 

Sexuality is fluid. Gender is a social construction, just like how race is a social construction as well. 

Thanks Geena for sharing your story. You go girl.
