Janet Mock, a Woman Among Women
I happen to have a severe crush on Janet Mock, who is in this month's Essence Magazine (for those of you who don't know, Essence is pretty much Cosmo for black women, only more stately and 'uplift the race-y.' I first came across Ms. Mock on Twitter, where she has been absolutely brilliant in her advocacy for trans people and women of all kinds. Since then I've read her blog, and I find myself swooning over her.
Janet is a trans woman and an activist, but most importantly, she is a pretty cool human being. Here's a fantastic interview with her in Colorlines.
