Only just a year ago, it was impossible for LGBT&Q to serve in the military openly. The government was afraid that would disrupt order. The military was especially hard on transgender people as we are put on hormones and such for our transition. At some point, we under go surgery to achieve the proper gender. But as of this year, the military is allowing transgender people to be open about it and the same with gays, lesbians and queers. See, the way I look at it, if you can perform the job, then why does it matter if you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer? You can perform. That should be all that matters.

See, I’m transgender for all I know. Currently, I’m pursuing a career in structural welding and firefighting. As long as I can perform on the job, then I’m fine. All I’m going to get is acceptance by my brothers and sisters out there. All the while, I’m serving my country and community. I am out there saving someone’s life or putting out a blaze. I have many friends that are part of the LGBT&Q community because its who they are. I have several friends that are CNAs and Nurses. Two of those nurses are lesbians, and one of my CNA friends is a lesbian. I have a male friend who is gay and he is a paramedic.

My point is, it doesn’t matter who you are. As long as you can do the job you signed up for then there isn’t a problem. Stand on your own two feet, keep moving on in life, and strive to reach you goals. You are you and you’ll do what you are best at. It is just like saying, “Why did I choose the career fields of welding and firefighting?”  Welding, because I’m good at it and love it. Firefighting, because I’m deeply indebted to the firefighters and paramedics that saved my brother’s life 16 years ago on May 18, 2000. I also feel these choices are the right ones for me. So don’t let anyone say you can’t do something because of who you are. Do what you feel is right.

Be who you are and strive on.
