Beautiful Daughters

Did I ever share this with you all? It is a making of a all transgender presentation of Eve Ensler's "The Virgina Monologues."

I love that video, it is just great. I cry every time I see it.

Maybe some people want to be lesbians or gay men
to be a part of the crowd
but nobody wants to be transsexual to be part of a crowd --
they just want to be themselves.

Helen Boyd and Betty on Dr. Keith

I am so impressed with their relationship, I wish mine had gone this way.

I made this comment to the first video:

I loved seeing the two of them together. I am reading "My Husband Betty" and had a have purchased the new book. I now understand how things are for them, from listening and seeing Betty. Good job Helen and Betty!

Too bad you did not get to even mention the books, and they didn't even say who Dr. Marci was! Weird!

Info sought in Baker's death

Info sought in Baker's death

Metro Police are looking for the public's help in the beating death of a transgender Murfreesboro man who was found shot to death in the parking lot of a Nashville bar.

The body of Nakia Ladelle Baker, 31, of Richardson Road was found next to his car at 3312-B Nolensville Pike behind Club Adventura & Billiards in the early morning of Jan. 7.

Baker — who lived as a woman but had not undergone surgery to change genders — was shot in the head by a handgun, Metro Police Detective Brad Corcoran said.

"There was some type of altercation in the parking lot and a struggle, and a gunshot," Corcoran said.

Although the death had initially been reported as a beating death, an autopsy found a bullet.

There were signs of a struggle around Baker's car, but no one in the area — including security guards — reported hearing a gunshot, Corcoran said.

Before the shooting, Baker had been in the bar along with several other transgender individuals, though the crowd inside the bar was mixed, Corcoran said.

Baker left the bar as it was closing down, but no one has reported seeing the altercation or the death, he added.

Corcoran said almost everyone who had been at the bar that night has been interviewed, and although there is still forensics and ballistic information being analyzed, it would be very helpful for a witness, or someone who had heard subsequent conversation about the shooting death, to come forward.

Metro Police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford said the case is still active, and that a CrimeStoppers reward of $1,000 was being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. Nashville CrimeStoppers can be reached by calling 742-7463. Anyone wishing to contact the detective directly can call 862-7680.

While it is upsetting for many people, She should be considered female. She lived and presented as a woman. It doesn't matter if she has had Gender Affirmation Surgery or not. Please, a little respect. Female pronouns please. Thank you

Vickie and Rep. Thomas DuBois

This Tom DuBois and I at the end of my time with him, on February 20, 2007. The visit was part 3rd Annual Advancing Equality Day on the Hill, sponsored by The Tennessee Equity Project (TEP.) He was great. I got to say my piece and he was respectful. What more could I ask for?

The Transgender Group at Capital Hill

This is most of the transgender group of TEP to visit Capital Hill on February 20, 2007.

The pictures were published by Nashville's Out and About Newspaper's web site.

Edit note: I added the Qut and About link 04-8-2007.

Sign on the Bathroom Door

I saw this sign on the inside of the bathroom door at Capital Hill, on our visit February 20, 2007. I wonder what this means? It makes not sense to me to be on a door in a woman's bathroom!

Hedwig and The Angry Inch - Wig in a Box

This is my favorite song and scene from the movie. I tear up from laughing and crying when I hear this song

I was at The Chute a few weeks ago and the girl piano player played this song and I commented to her that this was one of my favorites.

She was surprised that I knew the song,

I said, "Every self respecting tranny knows that song!"

Crime of the Week - Nakia Baker

Crime of the Week

February 6 , 2007

This week Nashville Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $1000 cash for clues called in to 74-CRIME that help solve the murder of Nakia Baker on Nolensville Road in south Nashville.

On Sunday, January 7, 2007 at about five thirty in the morning, the body of thirty-one year old Nakia Baker was found lying on the ground, next to his car, in the parking lot of Club Adventura & Billiards at 3312-B Nolensville Road. This club is an after hours club that is frequented by men who dress in women's clothing. At the time Mr. Baker was found he was dressed as a woman. Police do not know if that is the reason why he was killed or if it contributed to his death. Witnesses told officers that Mr. Baker had been socializing inside the club until he left to walk to his car.

Mr. Baker's car was a blue Oldsmobile Intrigue that had body damage to the front of the car. It had a black light hooked up to illuminate the passenger compartment. Detectives would like anyone who may have seen Nakia Baker talking to someone by his car to call Crime Stoppers and share what they saw.

Mr. Baker was a resident of Murfreesboro, Tennessee but came to Nashville frequently to socialize and visit with his friends.

If you have information which might help Metro Police solve the murder of Nakis Baker in the parking lot of club Adventura & Billiards on Nolensville Road in south Nashville, call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. If the arrest results in the arrest and prosecution, you could be eligible for a cash reward of $1000.

Crime stoppers will also pay up to $1000 for clues called in to 74-CRIME on any other major crime, wanted person, stolen property or drugs. Callers remain anonymous , they will only be known by the code number they are issued.

Pronouns are so hard on us all!

I posted this in Tabitha's blog:

Years ago, I heard about a transsexual where I work. She worked way on the other side of the plant, so I never ran into her, besides I am not out at work. She was transitioning at work and her name had been changed in the plant seniority list. I would watch her name to see if she happened to be working in an area near me.

One day I saw the she had gone back to Dean when it had been Deana. I was quite surprised. Also I saw that she (there I mixed the pronoun by accident) was working in the same area that I was. So I was determined to find her and introduce my self. I some how spotted her one day and went up to him with a picture of myself en femme cupped in my hand. I asked, "are you Dean?" He said yes, so I said "this is a picture of my alter ego." and showed him my picture. He in return gave me the biggest smile I had seen in a while. I gave him the picture which had my email address. I gave him a "T-Girl" hug right there in the isle. Later I wondered how many people saw that hug. I work as a guy so hugging in the isle could be considered quite inappropriate. I really did not care. I had finely met this T-Girl. We are now great friends and we go out for beers and an appetizer on Fridays.

Long story short, when I talk about Dean, who I thought of as Deana for years, but I have only seen as Dean, I still mix up the pronouns. We use the pronouns that we first used it seems. I do correct my mistakes quickly though. So go easy on your friends, if they are trying. You have my permission to give them "hell" if they are not.
