(Angela Brightfeather is my best friend and Co-Founder of the Transgender American Veterans Association, and I am proud to present this wonderful article from Q-Notes, the Carolina’s premier LGBT publication. This is an honor that she richly deserves. Congratulations, Angela.)

From her humble home in North Carolina to the doorsteps of national organizations and the halls of Congress, there’s no doubt that Angela Brightfeather has done her part this year.
If there were issues to be discussed, if the transgender community needed an advocate or if the transgender community was being ignored, Brightfeather stepped up.
The 63-year-old transgender leader and activist is a legend — she’s been involved in advocacy work since she was in her 20s; and she’s certainly not afraid of ruffling feathers.
