My 1979 I suddenly find myself in Boston, leaving the Public Garden after the Pride March. I meet a young lesbian in her twenties. She has very sh...
Stories offering a white, affluent, gay, male-centric perspective have hit the street running. The term 'Truvada whore' is already an early soundbite from mainstream media. But don't be fooled. The first voices may be the loudest, but they are not the most important.
As a young trans girl growing up as a yeshiva boy in Queens, New York, I found that this play resonated deeply within me. The eponymous Yentl, who goes by the name Anshel as a yeshiva boy, challenges the gender norms of that extinct European world of the Jewish Pale and its predominantly Orthodox Jewish communities.
I should have known before I pulled into the parking lot of the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) that what was innocuously being billed as a...

So, why did I feel the need to do a transgender faith tour? I ran out of fingers and toes (and hairs on my head) as I tried to keep a count of the number of times I have heard LGBT and Christian represented as an either/or proposition.

If Amazon's book-selling success scares some writers imagine what lovers of Netflix and HBO will do now that Amazon's binge series, Jill Soloway's Transparent , has turned out to be a work of genius?
Today, October 1, the Maryland transgender anti-discrimination law goes into effect, making this state the 18th in the country, along with Puerto Rico and D.C., to offer similar protections. At the end of the day, perseverance has paid off. Watching people evolve is, in some respects, even more satisfying than having them on your side from the start.
I admire my son's outlook. He views himself as an individual first, as we all are, and he's chosen how he wants to be identified, as we should all have the freedom to do.
Earlier this month hemlines were high at Colégio Pedro II in Brazil. After seeing their transgender classmate Maria Muniz get suspended for wearing a skirt to school, the boys and girls of the school all wore skirts to show their support.
Transparent, the much-anticipated new series on Amazon's Prime Video, has been met with substantial praise following its pilot release.
In response to the rise in violence and the lack of media and political attention, the group 'Black Trans* Women's Lives Matter' will be hosting a national call for peace and vigil outside the Congressional Black Caucus Conference in Washington, DC this Saturday from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
