Shy Natives gave me the chance to share my story as a Two-Spirit, as a Transgender Woman. Walking down that runway was like being able to unveil my spirit and show the world who I am, in hopes to inspire others to be who they are and to recognize and reclaim everything that makes them beautiful. it was like being able to break away from the chains of fear, and all the layers of trauma peeling away giving room to a new future, a future to help others, a future of change. — Jade (Lakota/Apache • two spirit) for Shy Natives
