Talked about being Transgender With My Son

I talked about GLBT with my son. He asked a number of questions to which I was able to answer. He asked if being gay is a sin? I answered no. I shared with him that I knew that I was different all my life. I love these moments because it presents an opportunity to share that we are people, too.

We touched on topics like gays in the military, trangenderism, my wearing women's clothing, Christianity, GLBT people in the church, and numerous other topics. I'm happy that he's accepting and open about my transgenderism. He's always been perceptive about life. I hope that there will be more opportunities like this.

Hate Message

On Thursday, April 14th, a burned rainbow flag was found in front of the LGBT community center here in New York City. this is another of the recent attacks against our community. Yesterday a suspect was arrested in the death of a transgender woman, who was murdered a couple of weeks ago.

Attacks against our community have increased. Those that hate us are trying to intimidate us back into the closet. That will not happen nor will I bow to the hatred of others.

LGBT Media

There are many reasons why print media is going the way of the dinosaur. Rising costs, the internet, loss of advertising revenues, and cheaper ways of reporting the news. Mainstream media long ago became irrelevant to regular folks, catering to advertisers and shareholders.

Sadly the LGBT media is becoming less relevant also. I get disgusted when half the pages in the publications are about entertainment and frivolity. It seems that some high ranking executives are more interested in attending a White House function rather than reporting about issues concerning LGBT people. There is hardly anything witten about transgender people and their issues unless a transgender person is murdered.

During the late sixties and early seventies, I read every rag sheet printed. Unencumbered by corporate and literary restraints, I received much in the way of education and the concerns of the community. The idea of an independent media is to report on issues that may not always be comfortable but very important to the people it concerns.

I pra that LGBT media will see that they have a critical role in presenting news and topics that concerns ALL members of the LGBT community. If advertising dollars and high profile clients are more important than presenting our concerns, then the media has failed their readers.
