Victory for Transgender Students in California

Yesterday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law that will require schools to allow transgender students access to the gender-segregated programs, activities and facilities that are appropriate to their gender identities. In other words, students’ eligibility for joining clubs and sports teams, their access to locker rooms and restrooms, and their state-mandated physical education classes will be determined by their stated gender identities, not by the sex listed on their birth certificates.

California is the first state in the nation to pass such a law, and we hope to see more states follow. It’s a big step in the right direction. You can read more about it here.

“Fucking Trans Women” is Sex Ed, Zine Style

fucking trans women

Today, Autostraddle features an interview with Mira Bellwether, author and illustrator of Fucking Trans Women, a zine about – you guessed it – trans women and sex. Bellwether describes Fucking Trans Women as “a how-to guide,” and it covers a wide variety of topics, from advice about approaching a partner, to diagrams of nerves in the body, to descriptions of specific sex acts. Says Bellwether,

One of the reasons this zine happened was that I got really sick of explaining things and teaching my lovers about my body during time that should have been spent having sex. When one of my lovers said that she wished she had an instruction manual for my body, I took that and responded to it pretty literally.

As consummate sex geeks, we appreciate her turning a teachable moment into a learning opportunity for the rest of us. Check out the full interview here. (NSFW)

Holy Wedding Season, Batman!

When we first got excited about marriage equality, we hadn’t even considered the possibilities for themed weddings. This wedding photo – yes, it is a wedding photo – got us thinking. An adorable interview with one of the two grooms pictured above (the one dressed as Mr. Freeze) describes their Batman-inspired wedding, and the “good bit of fisticuffs” you’re seeing:

Since my wedding party (11 people) dressed in villain-inspired cocktail attire, and his wedding party (another 11 people) dressed in hero-inspired cocktail attire, it seemed only fitting that instead of formal line-up photos, we would go with an all-out faux brawl between the two sides.

We’re hoping that the move toward marriage equality will mean (among other, more important things) that we see more wildly creative weddings like this one.

How about you? Any offbeat pairings you’re hoping to see walk down the aisle?

Los Angeles-based erotic photographer Dave Naz has a new project devoted to promoting the stories and images of trans women. Along with his previous series on genderqueer folks, Naz hopes this project will increase awareness and visibility of diverse gender expressions within queer communities. If you want to be a part of Trans, you can contact him at his site.

Here’s great news for Chicago’s trans community. Organizers with Chicago House cut the ribbon on Monday for a brand new housing facility for the city’s trans population.

“This will set a new model and a new standard for other cities,” said Chicago House CEO, Rev. Stan J. Sloan during the morning ceremony.

The TransLife Center in Edgewater is the first of its kind in the country, with 9 bedrooms for residents and housing, employment and health services geared to Chicago’s trans folks.
