Topless Transsexual Served 23 Days in Jail

It really caused me great consternation when I heard the story of Andrea Jones on WATE channel 6 last night. Jones had visited her local Tennessee driver’s license office to attempt to have the gender marker on her driver’s license changed from “M” to “F”.
Of course, she was refused.
The rules regarding change of gender marker are dictated by the Tennessee Department of Safety. They will change the sex on a license “if an applicant presents a doctor’s statement indicating that a full sex change has occurred and the procedure is complete.”

WPATH 2010 Slideshow

I know who or have met way too many people here. I also wonder about the person shown on this video before it starts, but I like the look.

SCC and WPATH 2011

Here is short report on my trip to SCC last week.

I arrived at the SCC hotel Sunday. I like to get there early. The relaxed pace of things is really wonderful.

On Monday I was in the hotel bar and I made sure the TV was on DWTS channel so we all could watch Chaz dance. 

On Tuesday we did the "Envelope Stuffing Party" where we prepare the registration packet and then when we are done we eat pizza and drink Cokes. It is always a fun evening. 

Probably the highlight of my week, other then going to dinner with all the Tennessee folks we could find, was meeting a mother Logan. She is the mother of a young transgirl who has already transitioned at a very young age and will not suffer under a purbity she does not want.

I found Logan on Facebook after watching the documentary "Sex, Lies, And Gender." I have been able to follow her and her family and I am so glad I could.


I knew she was at SCC and we finely met in Dr. Milton Diamond's seminar. Dr. Diamond is the one that exposed John Money's lies in the "John/Joan" case.

WPATH announces new standards of care for transgender and gender nonconforming people

Below seems to be a nice summary of the changes in the v.7 of the SOC. It is so long and I was pretty exhausted of 7 days of SCC and 1 day of WPATH that I have not made it threw the SOC yet. 

There are many good things so far, but I not everyone is totally happy. I have a what I hope to be a great picture of a mother of a trans-girl arguing with chair Eli Coleman right he made his summery at SCC. He neglected to mention that same thing when he gave the summery the next day at the WPATH meeting. 

Although they don't see themselves as gate keepers, I think this document will do little or nothing to change things for our local providers. 



WPATH announces new standards of care for transgender and gender nonconforming people
SEPTEMBER 25, 2011 19:57
There were champagne toasts and rounds of applause as the World Professional Association for Transgender Health released on Sunday its newest Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People  at a symposium at the Emory Conference Center in Atlanta.

WPATH revision committee chair Eli Coleman launched the 7th version of the standards of care to some 300 people who attended the symposium as part of a partnership with the Gay & Lesbian Medical Association and the Southern Comfort Conference, the largest transgender conference in the nation that takes place annually in Atlanta.

OUT!wear is selling hateful WBW clothing for Michfest and still claims to be supportive.

How in the world can these folks say that this "WBW" stuff could "promote ... unity and self esteem amongst Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, and Trans-gender persons," when the whole concept of "Womyn Born Womyn" is used to exclude transwomen from Mishfest!! (emphasis mine)
OUT!wear™ is quality custom Pridewear and Accessories "WORN WITH PRIDE" to promote visibility, unity and self esteem amongst Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans-gendered persons.To promote a positive image within our community, whether bold or discreet.

And they brag on their site that they are a lifetime PFLAG member.
We are proud to be lifetime members of PFLAG. A portion of the sale of PFLAG merchandise goes to support PFLAG's efforts. 

I wonder why PFLAF and GLAAD has to say about all this transphobia. I know I hate it!!

APA Releases Gender Dysphoria for the DSM-5, May 4, 2011

It looks like we have a new definition for being a transsexual. Instead of Gender Identity Disorder (GID) the APA is proposing to call it Gender Dysphoria. I have not read much about these changes yet, but at least it is not a "disorder." Charlotte Goiar (of HBS fame) posted this on her Facebook page Thursday.

APA Releases Gender Dysphoria for the DSM-5

Today the American Psychiatric Association announced the

replacement of the diagnosis GID for Gender Dysphoria [P 01 Gender Dysphoria] in the DSM-5 to be published in the year 2013.

Transsexualism (ICD-10) will not be longer classified as a mental disorder in the DSM-5 after confirmation of the true diagnosis of Transsexualism after medical and surgical
correction of it.

She made this political comment to her post:

It's time for us to be finally separated from the sociopolitical transgender agenda, and for to create medical protocols specific for our group of patients. Transgenderism is folly. HBS is real.

Transgender Day of Remembrance Speech

The amazing Ms. Vanessa Edwards-Foster, long-time trans-activist and co-founder of National Transgender Advocacy Coalition (N.T.A.C.), offers her experience-based wisdom as the keynote speaker at the official Illinois 2009 Transgender Day of Remembrance, which was observed at the New Spirit Community Church (in Oak park IL) this year. This secular but highly spiritual annual event was co-sponsored by Illinois Gender Advocates and Equality Illinois. This series of videos were produced, directed, shot (on location) and edited by Ms. Cyndi Richards (I.G.A. Chair) and Ms. Kimberly Nicole (Film 'n Video, Chicago) with the sole purpose of spreading the word far and wide about the ongoing series of unprovoked acts of fatal violence that victimize individuals who are perceived as gender-variant by xenophobes and other bigoted "haters" .

In 2009, approximately 120 human beings (that's TEN per month, or one every THREE DAYS!) from all over the world had their lives taken from them by other ignorant and violent human beings who could not simply "live and let live". (Point of fact: these disturbing statistics reflect only those murder cases which were reported to the authorities.) In Illinois (as well as other enlightened communities across the U.S.), we also pay tribute on this day to the legions of trans-folk who have succumbed to the slow, agonizing, ongoing effects of day-to-day discrimination by mainstream society, as well as the inexcusable incidents of "horizontal violence" (Google it) that occur within the LGBT community itself, which inevitably lead to isolation, hopelessness, and ultimately suicide. Those unique lives also had great value to the community, even if they themselves did not recognize that fact in their time of loneliness, desperation and sorrow,. Collectively we are ALL diminished by their tragic and highly avoidable choice, but they too deserve to be remembered. It is unreasonable to expect society to accept and respect trans-people when so many of our own community do not even respect each other. How many more people have to die, regardless of method, before we learn to take care of one another?

If trans-folk can't even manage to "watch each others' backs", then who will?

For more about I.G.A. and the fine, all-inclusive work they do for the entire Illinois transgender community, please go to

Also please feel free to share this important message with anyone who truly cares about the safety, dignity, and basic human rights of transgender people. Together we CAN "stop the madness".

2 Trans Murders Rock Brazil: Priscila & Val Executed In The Streets

Priscila, a 22-year old trans woman in Brazil (born Gustavo Brandão Aguilar), was captured on surveillance camera being shot seven times, execution style, earlier this month. It is -- and I do not write this lightly, or with malice -- to be expected in a country where a LGBT person is slain every other dayAfter shooting her, the suspects fled in a car. Police do not appear to have any significant leads. Her killing was followed, 20 hours later, by the murder of Valdecir. She was shot in the head and neck. THIS IS WHAT INTOLERANCE LOOKS LIKE:

Transgender 'Thailand's Got Talent' Contestant Stuns Audience

A recent "Thailand's Got Talent" contestant shocked audiences by revealing herself as a male-to-female transgender when her beautiful soprano morphed seamlessly into a masculine tenor midway through her debut performance.

Though male-to-female transgender operations are reportedly fairly common in Thailand, the performer's dual range certainly surprised the judges, who said they were "dumbfounded" but nonetheless praised her vocal prowess.

Watch the surprising performance in full below:
