“In my opinion, nothing is more important than growing future leaders and providing a platform for their voices to be heard. Now, more than ever, we must support the future leaders of the trans/enby movement and ensure that the progress we have fought so hard to achieve, continues until all Floridians are treated fairly and equally under the law. We know our fight for social equality is a marathon, not a sprint, and we need leaders to whom we can pass the torch. Let the next generation progress further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation.” - Gina Duncan, Director of Transgender Equality and Equality Florida’s TransAction Network.
