Congratulations, Angels of Change

Congratulations to Bamby Salcedo – and everyone who worked so hard on Angels of Change this year.  Roberta Morris’ students filmed the entire event, and we will post a link to that as soon as it’s available. And to Mario Perez, Miguel Martinez, and Talia Bettcher: congratulations on your awards.

Now in our third year, transgender youth are working hard as models, role-models and activists. The goal: Keep the Transgender Harm Reduction Project of the Risk Reduction Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Division of Adolescent Medicine – and the folks the program serves – thriving.  Después del tercer año consecutivo l@s jóvenes trans trabajaron arduamente como activistas y ejemplos de la comunidad. La meta: Mantener el Proyecto de Reducción de Daño para Transgener@s jóvenes con el Hospital de Los Niños de Los Ángeles, de la División de Medicina de Adolescentes, y continuar sirviendo a la comunidad trans joven.

The Transgender Youth Project provides free and affordable medical and hormonal treatment and other supportive services for at-risk transgendered youth. El Proyecto de Jóvenes Trans ofrece cuidado hormonal y servicios médicos y otros servicios sociales de apoyo sin costo a personas jóvenes transgener@ que están en alto riesgo.

The Angels of Change project is the brainchild of Bamby Salcedo, Transgender Services project coordinator at Children’s Hospital. CHLA provides services for transgender youth at a time when the dire economy is forcing L.A. County to cut even safety net healthcare services. El Proyecto de Ángeles de Cambio es una creación de Bamby Salcedo quien es la Coordinadora de los servicios para transgener@ con el Hospital de Los Niños de Los Ángeles el cual provee servicios a jóvenes transgener@ en la hora en que la economía a el Condado de Los Ángeles cortar servicios de salud y prevención.

There are two components to the fund raiser:

1) The creation of the Angels of Change Calendar and the money that is generated from the sales of the calendar.
2) The launching of the calendar which consists of a runway show by the calendar models.
