I just wanted to take a moment to give some recognition to someone who without a doubt, in my opinion, is the most important trans advocate and trans resource in the world today, and perhaps of all time.
Andrea James has put together the most comprehensive trans website in existence, the tsroadmap. she's also got a facebook fan site that is a fountain of great information and other resources. She's also a business owner who has created many great products and services that will help one transition.
As busy as she is, she's always responded to every e-mail i have ever sent her, in a very timely manner; and the content of her responses have always been of extreme value and high quality.
It appears clear to me that Andrea makes it a priority to be aware of any major issue that has anything to do with transsexualism, and she is often very quick to put together a fact sheet on the matter. She knows her trans theory and expresses it well. Andrea is a resource you can count on for what I feel is accurate and reliable information. Her facts are accurate, and her opinions are highly credible and valuable. Quite frankly, I don't think I have ever disagreed with anything she has said or published.
I feel Andrea is also a great person and a great example, representative, and spokesperson for the entire global trans community (yes, Andrea, herself, is a transwoman). She is educated, professional, articulate and passionate about who she is and what she does. I consider her a role model, adviser, mentor and a benchmark that i try to live up to as a fellow transwoman and as a fellow trans advocate.
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Andrea, for everything you do, and everything you are. Keep up the great work, and may your legacy live forever!
