We are celebrating our own Vice-chair of our Board of Directors, Erica Frazier….she was featured in this “Pride in the Pandemic” story by David Artavia on Yahoo! News

Erica Frazier’s coming-out story began over 28 years ago, when she first came out to her wife as transgender a few years after they had met. At the time, discussions about being trans were limited to mostly biased and often harmful rhetoric in society, not to mention within the medical community.

Still, though Frazier made a giant step early on, she felt the timing wasn’t right for her to come out as trans to friends and colleagues so she chose to bury her true self from the world.

That is, until the pandemic offered her a new opportunity.
