In a world that lives off of self-hate*, it is a radical* act to love yourself enough to be yourself. However, for the Transgender and Gender Nonconforming community, that radical act can be incredibly difficult to access. Transgender individuals have been and still are being targeted; particularly in recent years, with laws being made to displace and exclude trans people in public spaces such as bathrooms. The objective of this multi-platformed based resource, education, and community program is summarized into these three main points: Illumination, Solidarity, and Revolution. By doing the work and correcting the problematic nature of our current society, this project will help to increase the quality of life, not for those in the transgender community, but society overall. The Lantern Project is directed toward transgender individuals, but the bottom line is gender equity for all individuals.
