Houston-based Roberts has written for Dallas Voice and has been blogging on issues of importance to transwomen of color for 10 years.
In its announcement, Nick Adams, GLAAD’s director of transgender media wrote:
“Monica Roberts has used her blog to become a powerful voice for trans women of color and all trans people for the past 10 years. Monica has consistently spoken out about the discrimination and violence faced by our community, and she’s shined a light on trans people, especially people of color, when other blogs and media outlets would not. We are thrilled to honor Monica for her work and for her contributions toward accelerating acceptance for all trans people.”
