Transgender Day of Visibility

In case you didn't know, March 31 is transgender day of visibility which celebrates the joy and resilience of trans and non-binary folks everywhere by elevating voices and experiences, while also bringing awareness to the ongoing issues that trans folks are facing.

🏳️‍⚧️ Happy Transgender Day of Visibility!

Some of you may know that co-founder Sunshine recently came out as trans and has been sharing their story on their personal feed. They felt compelled to share their story publicly because they struggled for decades with their gender identity and admitting they were trans. It was in part due to the shame they felt and associated with being trans, and for not having the vocab, resources or role models in their younger years to find their true self sooner.

Michelle has been the biggest supporter and most loving ally for Sunshine to discover their trans identity and find the courage to share their truth!

Sunshine is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to live their life authentically and out loud! They’ve been so fortunate to have received so much love, acceptance and support from my friends, family, and community. Not all trans folks get that. Many trans folks face discrimination and violence, are disowned by family, can’t access gender affirming care and struggle with mental health. For any trans siblings out there struggling, we see you and love you! You are worthy of being here, being happy and being treated equally.

Sharing our stories is important. Representation matters. Trans rights are human rights.

The first stop on our 6 month road tour was in Steamboat Springs, CO to meet the Hala Crew and pick up two new paddle boards to use as we travel. We only had 24 hours to spend here and made the best of it by paddling the Yampa River, biking the Yampa River Core Trail, boon-docking and finding some pretty tasty restaurants.
