Simmons Primacy.

I apologize for not keeping strictly to my word—I know I said the last-last post, “Thank You,” was going to be the last post from me. But this is important, and I need your help spreading this. You are my pressure for change, folks—keep up with me here!

A friend of mine, Alex Sennello, just received a letter from Simmons College—another women’s college in Massachusetts.

Alex happens to be a transwoman, like me.

That letter happens to be her acceptance letter to Simmons, with a $20,000 scholarship for her photography work and her student activism in the trans* community. 

Attached you’ll find a picture of her acceptance letter, which she gave me permission to share.

Note that it speaks specifically to her accomplishments as a trans* activist, and correctly identifies her as “Ms. Alex Sennello.”

Feel free to write a letter of congratulations to her at: alexsennello@gmail.com

Feel free to keep the pressure on Smith College, so this might be possible at Smith College as soon as possible.

 

Calliope.

 

 

The letter, by the way, is here (ctrl+ for Windows users to read the words)
