What a Drag It Is Getting Old

Leland Bobbé's Half-Drag photo series is a gender/mind-bender of stunningly beautiful proportions

Leland Bobbé's new photo series, Half-Drag, shows New York drag queens at their most beautiful, while simultaneously revealing the men behind the makeup.

Bobbé began the Half-Drag project in January 2012 and has now photographed more than 60 different drag queens.

"I haven't considered making-over 'regular' people, but it's not a bad idea," Bobbé told Out magazine. "I doubt, however, that regular people would come close to having the makeup and hair skills that these queens have."

Bobbé, although influenced by other photographers, finds most of his inspiration from film and rock 'n' roll.

"The most interesting thing was seeing both the visual transformation of the subjects and the way they went from their male-self when they came to the shoot," he explains, "and seeing their feminine side come out once they were in front of the camera."

"A very small number of comments that people made online were not too nice," says the photographer. "But I think they just didn't get it. The pictures probably threatened them in some way."

Husband, Wife Share Story Of Coming Out Together, 20 Years Into Their Marriage

A California man says he realized he was gay more than 20 years into his marriage, then he realized he was a she.

It’s the kind of thing many think would tear a husband and wife apart, but not David and Cat Kaufman. But the end of the Kaufmans’ love story has an unusual ending. More than 20 years later, David Kaufman became Dani Kaufman.

“We were each other’s best friend,” Cat said.

It’s a love story with a normal beginning.

“We were a good match for each other,” said Dani Kaufman.
They fell in love, got married and had a kid.
“We just got along really well,” Cat said.
But the end of the Kaufman’s love story has an unusual ending. More than 20 years later, David Kaufman became Dani Kaufman.
When Cat looks at Dani, “Inside she’s the same person that I married, and just the outside has changed.”
Cat says she didn’t see any signs at all that David could be gay.
And if you’re wondering if Cat was really OK with her husband’s confession, she had a secret of her own.
That secret began a few years ago.
But Dani’s goes back for as long as she can remember, she says she’s always struggled with being born a boy.
“When I was 5 years old I just wanted to be a girl so badly,” Dani said.
In between attempts to end his life that began at 13, Dani ignored that haunting, nagging feeling, and did what everyone around him expected.
“I got married twice,” Dani said.

He got married and had two kids. After his divorce, he met Cat.
“It never occurred to me that it would be anything but forever,” Cat said.

The couple moved from Michigan to California, where David worked as a radiologist.
More than two decades after living a happy life together, things changed.
“I realized it was going to be the end of what we had,” Cat said.
Four years ago, Dani says he finally fully realized his attraction to men. While David, a husband and father, struggled with the 

idea of what to do next, he had no idea his wife had a secret of her own.
“I just said, ‘You know, I need to tell you something,” Cat said.
“I could tell she was really nervous,” Dani said.
“I need to tell you that I’ve been thinking that I would like to date women,” Cat said.
Yes, Cat told her husband she’d recently realized she was a lesbian.
“And I remember saying, “Oh my god, get out of town! I just figured out I’m gay!” Dani said.
“It was pretty shocking for both of us,” Cat said.
So after more than 20 years of marriage, husband and wife sat across from each other, knowing it was the beginning of their end, but a new beginning for each of them.
“It was excitement and relief,” Cat said.

Then last year, Dani realized she wasn’t gay, she was just born in the wrong body.

“No, I don’t just want to be female. I really am female,” Dani recalled.

Six-year-old becomes first transgender child in Argentina to change identity

A six-year-old girl, who was born a boy, has become the first transgender child in Argentina to have her new name officially changed on her identity documents. 

Lulu, a six-year-old Argentine child who was listed as a boy at birth, has been granted new identification papers by the Buenos Aires provincial government listing her as a girl. Photo: REUTERS
Luana, known as Lulu, is believed to be the youngest to benefit from the country’s new Gender Identity Law, which was approved in May 2012.  The act enshrines the right to be identified by name and sex as defined by the individual. 

As a result, the governor of Buenos Aires, Daniel Scioli, approved Lulu’s application to change her name from Manuel on her DNI, the Argentinian identity card, and birth certificate. 

"The government of the province of Buenos Aires has decided to provide a solution to this particular case raised by the family," Alberto Perez, chief of staff, said, according to La Nacion. 

The decision was made after Lulu’s mother, Gabriela, wrote to Mr Scioli as well as Argentinian president Cristina Kirchner. She said her daughter identified herself as a girl as soon as she started talking.

"By accepting that my son was not the son I gave birth to, but a girl, I accepted her identity and put myself at her side," said Gabriela, from Greater Buenos Aires. 

Lulu, who has a twin brother, was refused the request last December because of her age.   But the Children, Youth and Family Secretary ruled children under 14 were capable of giving consent and cited international human rights in overturning the decision. 

Argentinian reports suggested it was the first time anywhere in the world that a transgender child had been able to change their identity through an administrative process without resorting to the courts. 

Alfredo Grande, one of the psychologists involved in the case, told Folha de Sao Paulo: “The DNI is like a mirror. If a person doesn’t identify themselves there, it’s not good. 

“It was an important fight that we won.”

Transgender woman sues plasma collection company for rejecting donation

Her lawsuit in federal court contends that a plasma collection center discriminated against her when it refused to allow her to be a donor.

    Article by: PAUL WALSH , Star Tribune

Armed with a state ruling in her favor, a transgender woman in Minneapolis contends in a federal lawsuit that a plasma collection ­service discriminated against her when it barred her from donating.

“You people can’t give plasma,” Lisa A. Scott allegedly was told by a CSL Plasma nurse, according to her suit filed this week in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Department of Human Rights investigated the CSL outlet on Washington Avenue SE. and found that the for-profit company discriminated against Scott because of her sexual orientation in 2008 when the nurse told her that she was disqualified.

CSL told state investigators that it has a policy forbidding transsexuals from donating plasma, even though “there are no federal laws prohibiting transsexuals from plasma donation,” the state agency’s findings noted.

For decades, sexual activity between men has been a disqualifier in the United States for donating blood or blood components because of the risk of transmitting the AIDS virus. But pressure is increasing to loosen that prohibition. Rallies were held last summer in 50 cities, including Minneapolis, calling for a change in the rules.

Here's a bit of women's history for you

The Secret Life of Vintage Lysol Douche Ads

Every once in a while the internet is abuzz being horrified by vintage ads for Lysol brand douche.  The ads seem to suggest that women are repulsing their husbands with odorous vaginas caused by neglected feminine hygiene.  In fact, it only looks like this to us today because we don’t know the secret code.
These ads aren’t frightening women into thinking their genitals smell badly.  According to historian Andrea Tone, “feminine hygiene” was a euphemism.   Birth control was illegal in the U.S. until 1965 (for married couples) and 1972 (for single people).  These Lysol ads are actually for contraception.    The campaign made Lysol the best-selling method of contraception during the Great Depression.

Of course, we’re not wrong to be horrified today.  Lysol was incredibly corrosive to the vagina; in fact, it’s recipe was significantly more dangerous than the one used today.  Hundreds of people died from exposure to Lysol, including women who were using it to kill sperm.  

It was also, to add insult to injury, wholly ineffective as a contraceptive.

Here’s to safe, legal, effective contraception for all.

Transgender prof forced out of Christian college after coming out

A Christian college in California has asked a theology professor who taught at the university for fifteen years to step down because of his decision to come out as a transgender male. 

Professor H. Adam Ackley, formerly known as Heather Clements.

Azusa Pacific University (APU) administrators asked the professor, formerly names Heather Clements, and now known as H. Adam Ackley, to leave the university, the Gay Star News reported, in response to his decision to come out as a male late last year.

Ackley was midway through a five year contract with the university when he was asked to leave.

In a five minute video Ackley posted to YouTube on September 20, he detailed his struggles with self harm, carving crosses into his body. He also harshly criticized “Christian transphobia.” 

Another video posted in August, includes a forty minute speech from Ackley on transgender Christians and how to reconcile gender identity with the gospels.

Ackley stated he and the university agreed on his departure and that he will continue to receive paid throughout the remainder of the academic year, but that his classes will be taken over by other professors. 

Ackley also said he believes the university made the decision based on negative reactions from donors, parents, and churches associated with the school.

more on fyi

well, i learned more about this thing in my lungs.  so far only 2 of the 3 cultures are testing positive for it, and a firm diagnosis requires at least three positives.  so, i've given one additional sample while at the hospital today and have two more to give. chances are likely i do have this infection though.  it hopefully will not require hospitalization unless it either gets worse, or my lungs get further compromised with something else--like pneumonia or something.  after i go back to pulmonary in 4-8 weeks, maybe treatment can start.  however, this isn't anything like a 10 day regimen of antibiotics.  no, this is a 3 antibiotic regimen and will last 12-18 months...........sounds like a pain in the a**.  i need to check with my drug plan and hope that they will cover all 3 of them because i sure can't afford any large drug bills every month.  oh, well, we will see how it goes from here.  in the meantime, i should hopefully be back to captioning again by tomorrow.

was it worth it?

sorry, can't remember where I found this..................


soooooooooooooo yummy
