My name is Rose and I'm a bisexual, non-binary, trans woman. I currently use my social media as a platform to spread love and knowledge about the trans community. My social media turning point started on tumblr, where I ran a blog inspired by the hashtag #transisbeautiful coined by Laverne Cox. I choose to be visible because I didn't know an LGBTQ+ person growing up. I didn't know the word 'transgender' until high school.
As my social media has grown, I am overwhelmed by the frequently asked questions I receive. This site is a safe space to connect and learn more about the transgender community. The world needs positivity and accurate representation. My hope is to spread education and love. I hope to be the person I needed when I was younger. Know that it's okay to question who you are. You are valid, and worthy of love. Trans is beautiful.

Editor's note: Rosalynne Montoya identifies as a transgender Latina woman with "a passion for advocating for my community and helping others feel valid, loved, and beautiful." A writer, makeup artist, and model, Montoya "grew up sheltered from the LGBT community without knowing any queer people or the language for my own identity."
As we celebrate womxn this day, month, and all throughout our lives, we turned over the conversation to you, our Tomboys. Thank you to those who shared their story.
Real people—not just computer programs— should be involved before accounts are deleted. The community guidelines should not be able to be used as a tool to discriminate and target marginalized people.
Recently we had the valued opportunity to work with a community of intersectional models to develop a process that ensures consideration and a safe environment for all model talent that works with TomboyX.
