UN Asks Followup Questions in Response to Historic Testimony by Transgender Delegates

Members of CERD expressed interest in Major`s and my transgender testimonial messages from yesterday. One of the Committee Members asked for elaboration on the experiences I had all my life with multiple layers of discrimination and acculturation being mahuwahine and born into colonization as a US Citizen. This is powerful as the USHRN delegation is the largest of its kind and full of affected people of color providing testimony. In addition, the 2nd first is having not 1 but 2 transgenders testify . . . more tomorrow from the US delegation response to Committee questions. –Mel
