Angus “Andrea” Grieve-Smith, the trans blogger, found this series of articles by the Australian Sam de Brito. It is so funny and touching and shows a lot of understand for the transsexuals plight. (The stuff on Nick Lowe is just dumb, but please follow the 4 links. They are worth reading.)
Metafilter featured this interesting blog sponsored by the Sydney Morning Herald (and apparently named after this Nick Lowe song). The guy may be a jerk, but he’s got some valuable insights, I think. He did one of those “non-TG journalist cross-dresses for science!” pieces, which is more interesting than it might sound. I was also impressed with how sensitive he was to trans people. Also, he hooks up with a woman while cross-dressed, which (although not unheard of), is pretty cool.

(Bonus YouTube link in case you were wondering what Nick Lowe looks like when he’s really singing and playing - although I’ve never seen anyone play a bass with a pick before. The guitarist and drummer are pretty sharp too.)
