The Fractured Relationship Between The Trans and Gay Community

When broaching this story, I must acknowledge the sensitivity of it. In this forward, I would be negligent to imply that the contents apply to all gay or transgender people. I have wonderful gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and non-conforming people in my life who ardently stand against much of what this article details. It is intended to speak on a much broader, social scale.
