Here's an update on my goals of 2020, how I did and what I want to achieve this year! Maybe a little about what I've learned but I think I discussed that more in my December Goals post where I tried to go for a final push to reach my 2020 goals.

Elliot Page: Our Trans Icon
This week Elliot Page came out as trans and uses he/they pronouns. This was very exciting for me, as a trans nonbinary fan of theirs since... God, Juno? I've watched them create many exciting characters on screen for many years. I was a budding actor myself (and half still am) and I always felt drawn to Elliot's work and characters. Through the years, he has come out as queer (or, sadly outed like a lot of queer stars in Hollywood) and turned to a queerer direction of character portrayals. His characters were never mainstream, but seeing them change from straight/cis to queer and somewhat fluid of gender representation, gave me hope for the continuing change in Hollywood to start allowing more LGBTQ+ actors to, not only play queer roles, but any roles and be successful.
Preparing For December and Reaching my 2020 Goals
I don't have a traditional post for you this week as I'm struggling to get everything organised and fit into my schedule to be able to complete everything during the upcoming month before 2020 ends. I still have some follower count goals to meet on my Twitter, Tiktok, Instagram and Facebook and one of the ways to improve this is creating content regularly!
5 Main Tips for Being a Better Trans Ally
November is Trans Visibility month, and this week is specifically Trans Visibility and Awareness week with Trans Day of Remembrance landing next Friday (20th). We still have a long way to go with Trans Rights in the UK, but also globally. being a trans person of multiple marginalised identities is even more scary, isolating and dangerous. Many trans people are also mentally ill, neuro-diverse, disabled, chronically ill, Black, Indigenous, a person of colour, or queer in some form as well, or any combo of these things all at once. If you are new here, I am Artie, I am a nonbinary trans person with multiple disabilities and chronic illnesses, neuro-diverse, mentally ill and queer.
