About Monica Roberts

Monica Roberts was a trailblazing African American blogger and advocate who fearlessly fought for the rights of the transgender community. Born on May 4, 1962, in Houston, Texas, Roberts was a graduate of the University of Houston and worked as a journalist before transitioning in the early 1990s.

Roberts began her blog, TransGriot, in 2006, and quickly gained a reputation as a powerful voice for transgender rights. She used her platform to highlight the struggles and triumphs of the transgender community, and to call out injustices and discrimination.

Roberts was a tireless advocate for transgender people of color, who face some of the highest rates of violence and discrimination in the United States. She was a vocal critic of the mainstream media's coverage of transgender issues, and worked to ensure that the voices of transgender people were heard and respected.

In addition to her work as a blogger, Roberts was a frequent speaker and commentator on transgender issues, and was recognized as a leading authority on transgender history. She was the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the Susan J. Hyde Award for Longevity in the Movement from the National LGBTQ Task Force.

Sadly, Roberts passed away on October 5, 2020, at the age of 58. Her legacy lives on through her writing, her advocacy, and the countless lives she touched and inspired. As writer and activist Raquel Willis said of Roberts, "She was a force. She was a light. She was a trailblazer."
