Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Creating a pride club at my school has helped offer not only a space for support, but for conversations about the importance of self-exploration and understanding.
Why are you participating?: 

Because visibility is key.

Ali

United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I stood outside of grocery stores asking people to support LGBT rights for nine months. I launched the "Reject Stereotypes, Accept People" Campaign at a conservative business university. I always compliment people on their style.
Why are you participating?: 

Because after I dyed my hair purple and got tattoos, people started rolling their eyes every time I spoke. Because I grew up not knowing girls could be gay. Because LGBT youth are 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide or self-harm.

Maddie

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am an outlet to my friends, family and even strangers to come to and ask questions regarding safe sex and the LGBTQ community. I was the first person one of my friends came out to.
Why are you participating?: 

I have never had negative labels. I created and publicly identified by my own words and actions my whole life. Labels describe me; my personality, my orientation, my gender identity, how I see the world, but I never let them define me.

Mason

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.
