Candis Cayne tells her personal story on L/Studio. Her story is one of struggle, hardship, and triumph. Many people fail to understand how hard it was for the early trailblazers. The internet did not exist, and the word “transgender” was hardly uttered. Defining the spirit of what it meant to be transgender, required an enormous amount of self-reflection, courage, and honesty.
She knew she was different and so did the kids and teachers around her, and she unfairly paid the price for it. She was kicked out of school for being gay, even though she never admitted it, all the while she endures routine harassment. But it got better and it’s still getting better.
What is happening in North Carolina and other parts of the United States, is the death cry of hate and intolerance. It will be defeated because hate and intolerance is a recessive trait. No one wants to live a life filled with hate, it’s too exhausting and it’s unsustainable.
