Over the weekend, the hashtag #transtakeover took off, encouraging trans and gender diverse to celebrate their identities and raise visibility by posting selfies.
Speaking to BuzzFeed News, they said: “We started it because we both saw a hashtag on Twitter called #TransGirlsBreakTheInternet, but we thought that it’s about time there was a diverse hashtag that didn’t only cover transgender people, but non-binary and queer people".
“We reached so many people of all shapes, sizes, and identities, we could never have imagined that response at all,” they said. “We’re just two people from small towns in the UK. It was super nice to see how many people used it as a way of coming out.”
The results are beautiful.
