One of the ultimate goals for us in Trans World is to just be seen as the amazing men, women and people we are and just get on with living our lives.
Nikki Araguz Loyd since her precedent setting trans marriage case winin the Araguz v Delgado case has been doing just that. She’s been focused on helping promote her husband Will’s art career, being mom to two amazing kids, being that sisterfriend to all of us blessed to have her in our lives, and some human rights and trans advocacy work in different areas of importance to her.
Oh yeah, did I mention that the camera love her?
Through the Trans National Alliance, she’s helping trans folks here in the area and state of Texas get their name and gender marker changes done. The TNA is having another fundraiser at Hamburger Mary’s Houston on June 6.
Now Nikki has made history again in another arena. Her daughter is in middle school, and as you probably guessed, she has been a fierce advocate for her and the children of the school her daughter attends in that Trump loving suburb she lives in.
The other parents at the school have taken note of her all around awesomeness and fearlessness to speak truth to power be it the principal or the school board, and yesterday elected her the president of the school’s PTA for the upcoming 2017-18 school year.
She is probably the first out trans PTA president that I’ve been made aware of, and probably the first in the Lone Star State and possibly the nation.
As I’ve said, don’t mess with Texas trans women. We handle our business and get the job done.
Congratulations Madame PTA president! May you have s successful and productive term as you take on this exciting challenge in your fabulous life.
