What great little blog! Check ‘em out.

Earlier this month, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivered an incredibly powerful speech at the U.N. in Geneva. It’s not every day that a major world figure speaks out forcefully in defense of equality. But most people didn’t even hear about it.

Why? Because a handful of delegates stormed out of the meeting in protest and their story - that queer and trans people should be denied human rights - dominated the day’s news.

But we are about to change that.  This is a remix of what Ban-Ki Moon said (complete with a dance beat chosen by the team at All Out).When someone like Ban Ki-Moon speaks out, it makes a difference - but only if people hear what he has to say.

this is a link to a guide that is available on line and for ordering. it’s a guide that was designed for healthcare professionals and social service providers who work with trans people in quebec. it’s quebec focused in many respects, but has huge sections that apply to anyone working with trans people. inside or outside of quebec. pretty much, i think it rules.
just so y’all know.

Please pass this around!

Art Stuff #1
So because we are, after all, an arts project, I thought I’d post a little bit of art here and there. I’m a trans artist and this one of my own pieces, in the future I’ll be posting more stuff that is either by trans/gender-radical folks and/or stuff that speaks to me about gender/transliness.
This was made for Kate Bornstein, my hero and the ultimate gender outlaw.

Guy Named Joe by Coyote Grace

Who am I to change my life?
Who am I to fuck with form?
Who am I to weather a storm?
But I go slow
I said goodbye to everyone I know
And one morning I awoke
And I was this guy named Joe

Mod Note: This song always make me think about transition, my own and the one of the singer. I find it very tender, hauntingly beautiful. I hope you enjoy it.
