My weekend was spent relaxing and writing and reading. Don't remember the last time Memorial Day weekend was warm and sunny all three days.

I wrote a few essays for future postings and possibly a short story. I'm reading a fine book called 'Crossing Over' by Vanessa Sheridan. There 's a need for the church to reach out to transgender people with open arms. I will elaborate on what I have read in future postings.

Every kind deed done will not go unrewarded.

A great place to dine is CHELSEA GALLERY DINER
located at 72 7th Ave @ 15th St. The food is reasonably
priced and you are never hurried by the waiters. It is also
LGBT friendly. I have gone there after support group meetings.
Many groups go to Chelsea Diner afterwards for coffee, a late
dinner, or for one of their scrumptious desserts. One of my favorite
West Village hangouts.

I went to dinner last with two gay friends. We enjoyed a pleasant conversation about spiritual things. I was filled in about another transgender person who is struggling. I'm just praying for the person and that her mind would be cleared of all confusion.

We attended our fellowship at the center. We pray for the LGBT community because there's many hurting people. I wore a black print skirt, low heels, and a yellow blouse. I received compliments from everyone. It was the first that I dressed for the meeting. It won't be the last.

I took my wife out to dinner last Saturday. It was a cold, rainy day. Ugh. Yesterday I bought a black skirt. Now I have to get some shoes (flat preferably).

Tonight I will be dining with a couple of friends. I hope to see a transgender woman who is struggling. Maybe sharing my experience will help her. I pray so. I'm anxious to get out more often because I want to express myself more to the public. It may be that some folks are more open to transgender people since some gains have been made in the country. One would hope so, anyway.

Love in action can soften even the most hardened heart

Thursday, May 17, 2007

I attended a writing workshop at college on Tuesday evening. Later I arrived at the community center in time to sit in a meeting about workplace discrimination against transgenders. I even won a prize in the raffle. Whoopee! I personally have not experienced any discrimination but I have heard some stories by others. It happens in schools a lot from what I hear.

Thinking about it now, I will be confronted with these issues when I start teaching. As a transgender and crossdresser, I want to be prepared so I can handle these situations without incident. LGBT students have a hard time as it is. We have a right to enjoy our school experiences without harassment and bullying.

I have been involved with a couple of groups but I would like to do more in the transgender community. I don't want to overextend myself because of other responsibilities. One of my future goals is get a degree in gender studies.

I dressed this weekend. Wore my favorite outfit; blue skirt and white peasant pullover. I had to get som camisoles soon. I have to get my ears pierced-again. I took my studs out too soon and the holes closed up. Ugh!

Finally! I got my ears pierced! They're a little sore but they be okay. Today is the last day of classes. I never read so much in my life. This is from someone who is an avid reader. It was a very challenging semester but I wouldn't have it any other way. I need challenges. It's keeps the mind fresh and active.

Today was a wonderful day. I'm winding down this semster next week. I read a lot but the work got done. I'm looking into some graduate schools after I receive my bachelors degree. I'm deciding between childhood and adult education. Sometime in the future, I want to pursue a masters in gender studies.

I'm trying to chose some events to attend during the time off from school. I definitely will be attending pride events in June. A lot of writing is in store also. I have been scribbling things about a story about transgenders and crossdressers. I want it to be a positive story. One of victory, freedom, and liberation.
