TSNightlife.com is the world’s only Internet directory dedicated to the support of the Transgender Community through advertisement of parties created and managed by transgender individuals. Such parties raise awareness of transgender individuals in society and may help bring revenue to a community that historically has been the target of pervasive discrimination and violence.
II. Philanthropy: The duty to give in selfless support of others
TSNightlife.com accepts no compensation of any sort; rather, the website, its maintenance, and its support is donated freely for the benefit of the Transgender Community.
III. Background: Supporting the American ideals of diversity and equality
We are on the cusp of a new age; an age in which transgender individuals are starting to be accepted as equal members of society. This is the beginning of an era wherein transgender individuals will be entitled to equal status, equal pay, equal access, and the equal respect of their fellow citizens. I cannot stress strongly enough how important it is for this time of change to be recorded for posterity’s sake. In some ways, this period is akin to that of the Civil Rights Movement, where a group of people fought and prevailed in their quest to obtain equal treatment in society.
The transgender equal rights movement still is in its infancy; there remain many challenges to ignorance, discrimination, hate, and the intolerance that must be overcome. It is my firm belief that parity eventually will be achieved.
IV. Inspiration: The catalyst for TSNightlife.com
Inspiration for the creation of this website was sparked by the beautiful and gracious Miss Susi Villa, the Transgender Community, and its admirers and supporters.
Born in the tropics of Ecuador, Susi Villa, a male-to-female transgender individual, immigrated to the United States at age fifteen to live with her Mother, Sister, and to be united with others of her family. Five years later, she moved to Dallas, Texas, to lead her life as a female and to work for one of the world’s largest information technology corporations. After living nine years in Texas, she returned to New York City to live close to her family.
It was upon her return to the City that she discovered the nightlife of the resident Transgender Community. Soon she became a professional dancer at transgender parties and a hostess of other parties. Susi then discovered the transgender beauty pageant circuit, competing and winning the first Miss Asia NYC Beauty Pageant.
Despite a demanding schedule, Susi finds time for international business and holiday travel. Some of the destinations she has visited include London, Paris, Spain, Italy, The Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Thailand. It was in Pattaya, Thailand, where she represented her country of birth in the annual, prestigious, and globally recognized Miss Tiffany Universe Beauty Pageant.
Susi’s interests include featured dancing at transgender events and the promotion of her new venture, “TS Playground,” her weekly Friday party for transgender individuals, their supporters, and admirers to mingle and socialize. That social gathering represents one of Susi’s greatest efforts to support the Transgender Community. Her parties promote transgender individuals as equal contributors to society’s economic health and diversity at local and national levels. The parties also facilitate awareness of the Transgender Community among the general public, serving to curb discrimination and drawing attention to the challenges that transgender individuals face daily.
Susi Villa has created an atmosphere of comfort, acceptance, and inclusion for all; society has benefitted from her contributions, which she intends to continue and expand to elicit further positive results for the Transgender Community and the general public.
