Hello!

I recently read a story about two transgender woman who were murdered in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. These stories always sadden me, but this one hit me especially hard.  Her name was Betty Skinner.  A 52-year-old woman, she was disabled.  She lived in a senior housing complex.

Just like me.

Tell your Congressperson that there are people who are transgender people of all ages, all races, and all abilities.  Tell them that they are just as deserving of police protection as anyone else.  And if, god forbid, a transgender person is murdered, they deserve a thorough investigation into their murder.

We deserve nothing less. We are human beings.

Let 'em have it - by e-mail!

A few things to remember; as I said before, the House of Representatives has an election every two years, and they had one this past Tuesday.  If your representative's mark "www.smith.gov" has a hash mark(#) next to it, it probably means that he/she is serving his last term.  However, until she/he gives up the seat formally (usually the first week in January) she/he continues the seat in November and December.  Therefore, it's considered proper etiquette to address the current member, not the future one.

In brief:  Let all LGBT people have the same rights as heterosexual people do, and let them be universal.

Mountain View, California - Anna Eshoo (D) - CA14
Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania - Mike Doyle (D) - PA14
Framingham, Massachusetts  - Ed Markey (D) - MA7
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Robert Brady (D) - PA1

Terre Haute, Indiana - Larry Buchson (D)
Denver, Colorado - Diane DeGette (D) - CO1

The representatives are samples; to find yours, go to www.house.gov and enter it where it says "ZIP codes".
