There is no one kind of man. There is no one kind of trans-man. And every story matters.
This video was shared as a PAA (Public Awareness Announcement). Click on subtitles so you don’t miss anything. It’s exactly the kind of story we need to be more aware of. While trans-visiblity is increasing, people who don’t fit the narrative or the stereotype or adhere to gender expectations are often left out of the conversation. Add to that the invisibility of persons with disabilities and you’ve got a situation begging for someone like Leo to step up and fill the void. He’s proud of who he is and what he’s done, and he’s not afraid to speak up for his cause, which just might surprise you. From Buck Angel, who introduced Leo to us:
Leo shares his transition experience as a trans man with cerebral palsy. His message of self-love and becoming himself is a message that Buck Angel Entertainment wants to help spread to the world. Please pass this important and inspiring message on. Leo is a hero and a role model. Click on subtitles please.
