New Year's TG Resolutions



New Year's resolutions are like assholes, everyone's got one. Some are silly, some serious, some never fulfilled. What are you going to do? F.M. Knowles once said "He who breaks a resolution is a weakling; He who makes one is a fool."

Joining The Rebels

When was the last time you can remember that transgender people were included, or more importantly recognized for their involvement, for their contributions to change? Times be changin'

Me, a model. Why not? she exclaimed.


I had met Fran over a decade ago in New York City during the days when I was out and quite active in the transgender nightlife scene.  The first time we met she actually scarred me a little, jumping out on the dance floor in front of me, shimmying not a foot in front of me, with  big smile across her face.  In those early days she was still wearing the often 'just out' crossdresser ensembles; 16 year old dresses and the like.  But in short time her bright internal light shown through and I told my friends, I really dig this chick: she's fearless, unaffected by the masses, and does her own thing: she reminded of ME!

The Words of Others


The words of others don't define me. How could they? In many instances those "others" don't even know me. They see me and then an idea of who they ‘think I am’ rushes to their lips, before their brain can even process it.

The Accidental School Girl - Part II

“Your niece” Ricky inquired? Stephanie fumed, “Should I have told them it was my SON they saw in a skirt, blouse and girl’s shoes?  We’d be the laughing stock of the neighborhood. I’d never live it down! And neither would you!”

“But if they see me now won’t they know it’s me for sure.”

“You’ve left us little choice.  Come with me.” She led him to his sister’s room, where she began pulling out the clothes he’d just had on. “Take that underwear off, and put these one.” He starred at them puzzled. “But these are girls’ underwear.” All it took was her look, as if telepathically saying really, you’re NOW worried about wearing girls clothes? Ricky quickly acquiesced and slid the panties on. 

“I can’t take the chance that you bend the wrong way and they see your boy briefs.”

After a year on the ground in India, I finally ran into some mainstream transgender girl in Bangalore as the Bangalore Fashion Week.
