"The Assigned Sex movement is rooted in my desire to explore the profound questions that families of color have ignored for so long. Why is he “crying like a girl? Why is she “acting like a boy?” People need to be made aware that "male" and "female" are not clearly defined categories. For so long we have internalized misconceptions about transgender people, and this ignorance has left a large number of our youth suffering ALONE because of who they are. I could point fingers at the parents, grandparents, the pastors, the priests, or the politicians but the true enemy is ignorance. We can only fight ignorance with education. Transgender people need to be understood, and the only way that can happen is if we take the time to listen to their story. This is the foundation of the Assigned Sex movement. I wanted to expel the fear that comes from ignorance and let someone know that they’re not alone."
