Transgender “Your Life Matters” (reversible) RYC Band, carries words of support and reassurance, One side you will find the symbol for Transgender printed on the colours of the Transgender flag along with the words “Your Life Matters” on the revers side you will find, the symbol of Ao, an ancient titanus symbol of Chinese mythology. A magical and massive sea turtle, Ao was thought to have lived during the time of the formation of the world. When the goddess Nüwa, creator of mankind, took Ao’s legs and used them to support the world, his strength and majesty was such that he could hold up the entire world. Ao is also thought to be the home to three of the Eight Immortals (Penglai, Fangzhang, and Yingzhou) and was considered a son of the Dragon King who was able to endure enormous weight and pressure but able to grow into greatness.
