Faith Gamberty and Katherine Barry are both trans women living in Kennewick who run a hair salon for the LGBTQ+ community in the Tri-Cities. They both feel it is essential to have places where trans youth feel safe and accepted. Their willingness to talk to people about their identities as trans women is at the heart of their activism, taking on the responsibility of community education. Katherine says, on the importance of visibility and education, “There's so many misconceptions out there about transgender people. You know, you could put a long list together. Some of them are just so horrible... it's hard to get people's minds change from some of that.
