    I am no longer a rep for HRC, nor do I associate with them anymore.

    But, um, my story, could you focus on the stuff I told you outside of the three letters? :)

    Thanks!

      The HRC has told me outright they have no interest in Transgender issues while hovering up desperately needs funds for homeless youth and those that fit outside the binary gender spectrum. You need to take my reaction in that context.

      •  Yes, and I do. (3+ / 0-)

        Which is why, after I left them, thinking they were a great bunch of guppys, I came across the issue that they are (many, if not all) not interested in Transgender issues.

        BUT, my experience at Be-All educated me, let's say, in the opposite direction of HRC. I kinda then put two and two together and felt that I was ultimately right to leave them. I sure as heck wasn't getting any benefit, but in the final analysis, as you well know, all experience winds up being beneficial educationally. So, no fear, I get what you mean, but that was my story.

        You know, I found out a month ago that Be-All 2013 Conference was cancelled for this year. :(

        Now, my high schooled age niece has a friend who appears to be very fluid right now in gender identification. When I was visiting, she introduced me to "Paul" (name changed for this note) and he said that he was very happy to meet me, as my niece had spoken well of me. Later, I told my niece about my two visits to the Be-All Conference.

        So, the education came to be very personally useful. I am glad of it! :)

        Best,
