Kylara Ann Bagwell
MTF Trans Coordinator
Hi my name is Kylara but most people call me Kae. I am a Transgender woman. I have known I was different than the way others around me have seen me since I was little. Throughout my life, I have been struggling to let myself out as I see myself. I tried many times but would get pushed back because of others around me not accepting me for who I am. Throughout my life until many years ago I was trapped into being what others thought my gender was from birth. Now I have a loving person in my life and am able to be ME! I have love from my Rainbow family as well that loves me for me and I am so thankful for that. There are still people that do still only see me as I was born but I am hoping in time they will see me for who I am.
I am a MTF Transgender Coordinator for the Rainbow Support Group. I am here to help in any way that I can.
