Actually, when you think about it, hiding out in the trans community has merit. We are either invisible to society in general or we are noticed and dismissed. Either way, often we are overlooked. We would have to be recognized as people and that’s a stretch for many in the general populace.
Anyway, it was a good plan, but her greed got in the way.
To follow up on the person who brought the impostor in, later she brought a person into the group for paid work. We got double billed and the person stole our lists of donors and trans people in order to start her own group.
It is unfortunate that trans people have not only a poor reputation internal to the community, but also external to the community. It makes it very easy to ignore us and pretend that we don’t exist…
