Janet Mock on Lack in the Transgender Community

CC | tv-14
Writer and transgender rights activist Janet Mock is proud to be a mirror and role model for young girls, but wants to be clear that while she may have achieved success, her story isn't the norm. Janet speaks about the deep space of lack in marginalized communities caused by a society that closes its eyes to the problems of people who are different while holding up only the rare tokens, like Janet herself, who have made it.

In this video Janet speaks first hand about what it means to be a token and never fully seen.
