TransAction Advisory Board Spotlight
"Last year, Equality Florida launched its statewide transgender inclusion initiative in support of the Transgender Community. With the creation of TransAction Florida's Advisory Board, we now have a statewide scope and reach to provide advocacy, awareness and education of the transgender journey. We are very pleased to highlight one of our Advisory Board Members each month in 2015. This month, I am honored to spotlight the awesome, Michael Keefe."

1. Tell us a little about yourself…
It has been an eventful year! After years of waiting Floridians now have marriage equality! But, the fight isn't over. LGBT individuals in Florida who were married on Saturday can still be legally fired from their job on Monday. We have to keep the momentum going throughout Florida to eliminate discrimination in the workplace and pass the Florida Competitive Workforce Act!
It’s been a little over a week since Lobby Days, but the energy of those two powerful days is still here! During the event incredible volunteers from across the state engaged with over 80 Representatives and Senators to continue the momentum behind pro-equality legislation. The event was dynamic and inspiring for all who attended.
