Why Tiommi wants to be a part of A Girl Like Me: I see A Girl Like Me as unifying the community of the cisgender women and transgender women alike. I know that I would be honored to blog for such a reputable organization because you see that I have a voice as well. This gives me a platform greater than I've ever seen. I have the opportunity to touch the lives of the trans woman who is about to give up because it seems all hope is lost. I can speak to the woman who is in love because I am also. I enjoy sharing my experiences on the many conferences I have attended and will attend. Information is power and I am constantly receiving information on HIV.
