I am a 2006 graduate of the Law School. My partner is also a graduate of the Law School. We work in the Ann Arbor area and are on campus regularly. I am a member of the Spectrum Center’s Speaker’s Bureau and regularly speak to University classes about LGBT issues, specifically related to transgender status since I am a transgender woman.
Yesterday was the 10th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. The University, through the Spectrum Center, has done its best to advertise the week’s Transgender Awareness activities on campus, including Friday’s annual memorial service held at Rackham. Despite this and despite a history of rallies on campus — all designed to raise awareness of the horrific violence and ingrained discrimination that transgender people face — the Daily has not written a word about the activities.
I think you need to better educate yourselves about what’s happening on campus and do a better job of reporting.
