Geena Rocero tells the story of becoming who she always knew she was in her TEDTalk, "Why I must come out"

Geena Rocero believes the importance of November 20th, the Transgender Day of Remembrance, is to remember the violence against the trans community and to also be vocal about what is happening to trans people in order to educate others. 

For this reason, Rocero founded Gender Proud, a movement that aims to change the global perception of and conversation about transgender individuals. 

Geena's endless advocacy of transgender rights has made her a heavily sought-after speaker. She has spoken at the White House, the World Economic Forum, and the United Nations, among others.
