Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I do my best to be out and proud and try my best to be hyper-aware of my actions and how they affect the people around me. Before transitioning I identified as a queer female and was quite invisible in society. I had to raise my voice to be heard and I had to fight to make sure that my accomplishments were not overlooked by my male counterparts. Now I identify as a white male and society sees me that way. Now I am seen, I am heard. But I remember how it felt to be invisible and remind myself everyday of the women and minorities who are still invisible in this white-male dominated world. They should be seen/heard too. I ask myself how can I help them be heard? How can I be sure that I am not dominating the space? The answer is to listen. To pause when I hear a voice that is trying to be heard, to hold space so that person can speak. Sometimes it can be difficult to shut my mouth, but it is important that I do because my core value is to treat others in the way that I want to be treated.
Why are you participating?: 

I participate because this project is a great concept and has the potential to spread good messages to people. I like to participate every year because I'm constantly evolving/changing and want to reflect that.

I own a costume of my "fursona," the character I created to represent me within the Furry fandom. At conventions, when I'm in costume, I'm often approached by strangers, some furry, some not, who ask for hugs from the big pink fox. I'm always more than happy to give them. The joy on someone's face when they hug a giant stuffed animal, the way they glow, is truly magical.
Why are you participating?: 

I spent the better part of my teen years struggling within the confines of the labels assigned to me, and my twenties breaking away from them and finding the labels that best fit me. It is a project I don't think will ever end, as long as I still draw breath and can still ask questions.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I've found a fulfilling purpose in being a positive role model for a young Transgendered girl in a small town. She no longer feels like she's the only one.
Why are you participating?: 

Every day I try to spend my time doing things that improve my world and my life.
Every evening at midnight, today is gone, It will never return. Use it to create happiness.
