My new FTM YOUTUBE Channel! [Apr. 19th, 2011|09:19 pm]

im ryan, and im ftm! yah

i just wanted to post about my new youtube channel, where im trying to set up a place for people to talk about ftm everyday issues. Ive set up a few videos already and am open to ideas to make new videos. one of the more important reasons for doing this was because i felt that the lgbt community has a way of excluding queer people of color, and being hispanic myself, i identify with this feeling. i havent seen much out there based on these issues and thought maybe this could be a place for some of that to be spoken about.

well heres the channel check it out!

Attn: all members [Jul. 28th, 2009|02:37 pm]

Given the lack of recent activity on here, I changed the community settings to allow any users to join. My hope is the focus will remain generally the same as it started, and posters will generally self-police. If this becomes a problem, we can always close off membership again.

POST WIDELY!! [Nov. 7th, 2006|01:43 pm]



An open letter to our communities from “Elliott” (a pseudonym), Kate Loewe stopsexualviolence@riseup.net), Kathy Ni Keefe (nikeefe@riseup.net), Samuel Lurie (slurie@gmavt.net), and Eli Clare (eclare@gmavt.net):

We are writing to let our communities know about a recent hate crime that occurred in New Mexico. We are writing to break silence, to create resistance to violence and space for healing, and to build support for the survivor. We are writing in hopes that we can take care of each other, undercut the community-wide fear that comes with hate violence, and work toward justice.

Please note that what follows contains some graphic details, which could be triggering. Also, the survivor is a parent of two children, and this information MUST NOT reach them.

x-posted a good amount (x-post more and feel free to place on your personal journals)

Race and transgender issues for research paper [Oct. 18th, 2006|02:19 pm]

I've been asked to look for articles written on race and transgender issues in the US. I know that there are some resources out there for trans people of color, but finding articles that discuss the topic is incredibly difficult. Anyone know of any?

This was already posted in ftm and probably others, but I wanted to get some discussion in here.

NYT: The Trouble when Jane Becomes Jack

It's on the sense of betrayal and outcasting that goes on between lesbian communities and transmen (and other issues -- that simplifies it). As for quality, I think the article's accurate and, if nothing else, a rare prominent and humane portrayal of trans people.
