STRAP's Sybil Awards 2010
On Saturday, the STRAP family will come together once again for the final big event celebrating our 8th year anniversary. To honor all our allies, we have decided to give out an award called the Sybil as a way of giving thanks to those who have helped promote transgender equality and acceptance (see poster above).
We will have a General Assembly(GA) first to give a chance to all our members who are here in Manila to catch up on STRAP's activities and plans. After the GA, we will have an awarding ceremony for the recipients of the first ever Sybil Awards. I cannot tell you how excited I am about the Sybil. It is going to be our legacy as the current officers of STRAP.
I am so proud that soon our hard work will come into fruition. We conceptualized the Sybil Awards right around the New Year and have been working slowly to see it come true. On Saturday, our dream will finally turn into reality and I am just overjoyed. I just wish that I could spend the night of the 22nd with all my friends, family and loved ones. It feels like graduating on top my class all over again if not like Christmas morning.
I cannot wait for Saturday. I know in my heart that it will be one of the most memorable days of my life.
