Who runs this?

My name is Greyson Simon (they/them/their, vi/vir/vis) and I’m the founder of the Trans Language Primer. I’ve been out as queer since 2003 and out as genderqueer and trans since 2009. I started my work within the community at Genderfork as a photo curator (2009-2010), in early Trans Youtube running my own channel and participating in collabs (2009-2011), and on early Trans Tumblr where I ran multiple projects (2010-2014). I then moved to Facebook where I worked as a community manager for the Facebook Transgender Alliance (2014-2017). It was here that I decided to create the TLP after struggling for years to point folks in the direction of resources that were comprehensive enough to get newbies started, but flexible enough to keep pace with the community’s exploration of gender. In 2015, I was recognized by the Trans100 for my work with the FTA and the beginnings of the TLP alongside many other amazing community workers. I also completed the Out In Front leadership program that same year where I was able to meet other community builders from around my local region. I’m passionate about reaching back to help others and believe that the only way we’ll survive the fascist onslaught against our community is by working across our differences to support each other. It’s with this spirit that I run the TLP and put as much money back into the community as I can.

Michon Neal de The Metanoiac Portal, nuestre lectore de sensibilidad en 2017, cuyas revisiones han sido decisivas para que este proyecto sea lo que es hoy: un documento en constante evolución que sirve como una base de conciencia y comprensión interseccional sobre el género. Si tienes un documento, proyecto o blog relacionado, aunque sea indirectamente, con la conciencia interseccional del privilegio y opresión sistémica (es decir, cualquiera que tenga un documento, proyecto o blog), deberías contratarle como lectore de sensibilidad. El conocimiento que aportó a todo nuestro proceso de reescritura fue increíblemente valioso.
