Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am the executive director of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC), working to end discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. I am passionate about equality for all people of all gender identities and expressions.
Why are you participating?: 

Labels can be a tricky thing in our world. When we claim them for ourselves, labels can be empowering and enlightening, for us and the world around us. Yet, when used maliciously or without consent, labels can cause unspeakable or unforeseen harm.

I help lift the spirits in my community through my music and vocal harmony.
Why are you participating?: 

Why not? I'm not evil! People that express their gender in a non-conventional way shouldn't need to hide in the shadows! Let us be who we are.

Becka

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have shared my sobriety,my home, my art and my voice (my passion) with addicts, and the LBGTQQ community creating safe places for folks to land, create, find and discover who they are.

this is an inspiring project to help dismantle peoples beliefs, expectations, fears, assumptions, about who they believe someone is, who we ourselves believe we are, what we all share, and how truly amazing, beautiful, different, and multidimensional we all are...and what we are all capable of (

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteer with LGBTQ youth at Safe Homes in Worcester. I love being an example to the kids that growing up doesn't have to mean conforming. I'm not sure that it qualifies as a good deed though. I think they have done more to help me than I have to help them. They remind me why I'm an activist and why the LGBTQ community needs people like myself.
Why are you participating?: 

I truly believe that stereotypes are a detriment to our society. I am judged every singly day of my life and I know that most of those judgements are wrong.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I listen to others and try to help them through problems. I adopt abandoned cats. Most importantly, whenever I pass people on the street I smile at them or offer another kind gesture, because you never know if they're having a rotten day.
Why are you participating?: 

In the midst of all the bad in the world, goodness still exists. This project is a perfect way to prove that.

Every year I volunteer at The Walk for the Homeless. Rain or shine, I am there. Directing walkers, posting signs or helping pass out food. We raised thousands of dollars a year for the cause.
Why are you participating?: 

I have always liked to help the less fortunate, it feels really good to be part of something that makes a difference in someone's life.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am an eco-artist, and advocate for decreased plastic usage through my work.
Why are you participating?: 

People are so limited by the labels other put on them. Most labels aren't truly accurate.
I suppose that I am doing this project to say, yes, I am that label. Here's the truth about it and here's why it's actually a compliment.
