Invitation to Washington D.C.






Yesterday afternoon, I received a very, very special email from an official government email address:


This September, I will be heading down to Washington D.C. to take part in an Up and Coming LGBT Leaders gathering. I expect this will be an absolutely amazing experience. I’ll be able to tour the west wing, attend a LGBT Policy Summit, and meet numerous other young queer leaders across the country.

Over the next few days, I plan to significantly increase the amount of posts I make, and truly start expanding on the structure I laid out here on my site several months ago. I also have business cards coming in next week. Stay tuned for more posts and information in the very near future!

    Yay! That is really really cool! Congratulations, Ashley!

  2. My partner would all but kill for an opportunity to photograph / report on an event like this in some sort of official capacity. No idea how you did it, but congratulations just the same.

    • Thank you so much! I wont be reporting, or taking anything physical from this. I’m going to speak, to learn, to educate, to get involved, and to truly see what Politics has to offer a young transgender woman who has repeatedly slipped through the cracks of the system, who has repeatedly been denied basic rights because of the very thing they are honoring me for. I cannot wait for the trip! Its going to be amazing. And besides, I recently learned several of my close friends and people I have worked with for years will also be going to this trip!
