The last decade has been monumentally important in terms of gaining rights for the transgender community. With the emergence of digital media, marginalised LQBT movements have been able to discover online outlets and safe spaces which would be more difficult to find in reality. As a result, the LQBT community has been able to mobilise effectively, gaining the political capital to make both cultural and legislative social changes.
One of the most-discussed talking points in identity politics is the issue of trans representation. Despite the strides Western society has made in recent years towards being more inclusive when it comes to trans citizens, many still feel that transgender people still have a long way to go before they are completely accepted.
According to a 2011 census by the Williams Institute, there are about 1.4 million people in the United States alone that identify as transgender. Among those 1.4 million, though, there are few positive transgender role models, and that slows the LQBT community’s integration into Western society.
With this in mind, it’s always significant when a transgendered individual manages to gain recognition online, as it provides a platform for LQBT issues to be discussed earnestly in an open forum. Jaimie Wilson proved an inspiration for other transgender people around the country, when he stunned the internet with his unbelievable gender transformation.
