Black Transwomen Inc Empowerment, Diamond Stylz
Diamond Stylz is one of the premier transgender voices of our community. She has been blazing the trail of advocacy and visibility since she was 17 years old when she won her first First Amendment rights case against her high school to go to the prom simply in a dress . That win set her on fire and she continuing to break ground. In college, she became the first openly transgender woman to attend Jackson State University a HBCU in conservative Mississippi. She has continued her work with a new medium: YouTube. As a video blogger, she has taken Trans visibility to new heights by not only sharing her story but sharing the stories of other Trans people all around the country. Through amazing storytelling and honest self-reflection, Diamond Stylz, like pioneers before her, has opened the world to a new chapter of Black Trans femininity and experience like never seen before. Diamond is a founding member of Black Transwomen, Inc and serves as an active board member.
