Please write a detailed description of your experience below. Relevant details including names, dates, and any other information you can provide will help us understand the scope of your experience. *
Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with the National Center for Transgender Equality. Whether you shared a story that you've never told anyone else, or shared story you've told many times, we appreciate the bravery it takes to speak your truth. We may use your story in our advocacy work, identifying you or giving identifying details. We will not share any personal information without your permission.
One of the reasons we gather stories is to find spokespeople who are willing to share their experiences with the public. If we trained you and provided support, would you be willing to speak publicly about your story or share it with the media? (Please select from the drop-down list below)
Yes, but only if my name is not attached
Unfortunately, we are unable to be in touch with everyone who submits a story. Likewise, we don't always have a way to share or promote every story when that is submitted to us. As we move forward we will follow-up with any potential spokespeople who have stories that best fit our advocacy focus and current needs.
Thank you again. Please contact Rebecca Kling, Community Storytelling Advocate, with any questions or concerns at
Add me to NCTE's email list.
