For those of you who have been following the uproar over Smith College —another prominent women’s college— horrible policy of not admitting trans* women into their undergraduate program, this may be of interest.
I applied to Simmons College —a prominent women’s college— with an application that clearly identified me as a trans* woman and spoke of my work within the trans* community. They never questioned my gender markers or asked me about being trans* and responded with the letter above.
To all who work in admissions at Simmons, thank you for leading
by example. Smith —despite being labeled a safe haven for the queer community— clearly has a lot to learn from your institution.
Yeah Simmons- way to be awesome yet again!
c’mon, I know you’re all hilarious!
facebook is overflowing with love today… ugh.

So proud to go to school with such empowered people. When we see something’s wrong, we do something about it.
Make Simmons a place that’s comfortable for everyone.
