Today’s good news really got me thinking about the title of this blog series: We Are The World.

None of us is exactly the same. None of us has the same experience in life, and none of us can really know what it’s like to walk in the shoes of someone else.

We can judge someone for the decision to be themselves – or we can open our arms and our hearts to something different.

Good News for A Boy

In 2015, Stiles Zuschlag was kicked out of his Christian high school for being transgender.

This year, his peers at the new high school he enrolled in shocked him when they voted him homecoming king after a joke he posted on Snapchat.

What he thought when he got the news:

“After I won at the homecoming game, I almost started crying. My friends all put me in, people I didn’t even know put me in, everyone voted for me on the final ballot.”

Congratulations, Stiles!

Good News for Everyone

Every time a trans person is lifted up, it’s one step closer to equal treatment. It’s one moment closer to the day every one of us is judged by who we are – by our character and actions – instead of what’s in our pants or who we love.
