Rainbow Connections

Look what two of our friends found for us at the University Park MD town yard sale in May! A JanSport Trans backpack in rainbow tie-dye and purple (and the colors are even better in person). I know!!

And they gave it to us today, the day it was announced that a colleague became the first trans staffer at the White House (and a colleague I'd worked with back in MA, especially through the MA Trans Political Coalition and the Jewish community).

I actually remember when JanSport came out with the Trans line – especially because some of my queer colleagues were among the early adopters – and I’ve always wanted one.
