Increase understanding and compassion
Thank you so much for your wonderful spotlight article on Trans Pride in Seattle and the work of some of our awesome local transgender activists! [“Ready for the spotlight,” page one, June 24.]
The piece was respectful and interesting (with some gorgeous photography), and I hope it will help some of your readers have a better understanding of and more compassion for our fellow citizens.

Other issues should take priority
I found it interesting that you had devoted about three-fourths of the front page to a full-color spread on transgender equality, and left a single column for the Edward Snowden story.
It is funny how we will fight for equal rights, and at the same time ignore losing rights that, as Americans, are basic to our society.
I do not mean to downplay the importance of transgender equality. But the foundation of our American society is fairly rapidly eroding away, without us even noticing.
