Dear God, Dad says I have to go to church to warship. I don't know what that means. But I like the man in the dress who tells us to pray and bosses ev...
As a gender non-conforming female who presents in a way that would be unfortunately labeled by much of the world as more masculine than feminine, I experience challenges regarding my gender identity and presentation on a daily basis.
This sort of inaction by lawmakers makes it increasingly unsafe and difficult for our transgender denizens.
It's perhaps fitting than in a year when Antony Hegarty nabbed a Best Original Song nomination and Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander were recognized for their work on The Danish Girl we've been prompted to revisit Morley's story and return her, perhaps, to the place in LGBT history she'd always earned.
A mere 12 days ago, an extraordinarily brave and faithful soul found herself called by God to declare her own authenticity. She did so publicly in an intentional, courageous and life-changing sermon.
For me, the day I started taking hormones was the day I started to take back control of myself and my body. I started to take back control of my life. It was my choice. No one forced me. No one or anything made a choice for me that day. I owned it. I was reborn.

The expectations of femininity didn't suit me so I assumed that I had to pick the other option. I didn't realize it didn't have to be an either/or situation.
Nothing makes me chuckle more than someone who wants me to "prove" I'm transgender - and by "chuckle" I mean "ignore with unspoken derision." When the...

Last year, The Pride Network hosted a day-long event, Students Promoting Equality Action and Knowledge, SPEAK Summit, where a few hundred students gat...
When I was a kid, I didn't specifically have FTM role models, not because they didn't exist, but because I didn't know about them. I'm not sure if young trans males still feel the same and if so, what that says about the "transgender moment" -- but fortunately for me, there was a Bowie.
