Hey, my name is John. I am a junior Communication major at the University of Maryland. I was born in Washington, D.C. but raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. My hobbies include hanging out with friends, exercising, walking and playing with my dog, and doing martial arts.

I am a supporter of the LGBT community, and I believe that everyone deserves equal rights. Over the past few years, there has been a lot of progress made toward giving members of the LGBT community the rights that they have always deserved. I believe that transgender restrooms are a step in the right direction to further progress for people in the LGBT community.

I have two cousins in the LGBT community. I hope that this blog will encourage others who are either members or supporters of the LGBT community to take a stand. We cannot remain silent.
