Peace—it’s a word that has so many meanings to it. Take a moment. What’s your peace?
That’s how Desiree Jade Sol of West Hollywood begins narrating (Trans)formative: A Day in the Life of Desiree Jade Sol, a short biographical video about her life. For Sol herself, finding peace meant coming out as transgender, then being embraced by her community.
Sol is active in the trans community and in civic affairs. She serves on WeHo’s Public Safety Commission, and state Assemblymember Richard Bloom named her the 2014 Woman of the Year for the 50th Assembly District. Sports fans of WeHo might recognize Sol from softball, from WeHo Dodgeball and from the West Hollywood Cheerleaders.
The video is from WeHoLife.org, a project of the Los Angeles LGBT Center and the City of West Hollywood.
