Being transgender in Atlanta – By Tracee McDaniel and Jamie Roberts

Imagine going to work using Atlanta’s mass transit. You walk into the station and people give you the side-eye. You walk to the restroom appropriate to your gender presentation and a police officer tells you not to use it. You wait on the platform for your train and some young men start to shout catcalls. They continue to harass you. You answer, they grow angrier. One swings at you. No one aids you and your humiliation is recorded and goes viral. You report your experience and see yourself mis-gendered by police and local journalists.

Welcome to Atlanta, trans person!
