 T.S.A. Harasses Transgender Woman
The embarrassing treatment of transgender woman, Shadi Petosky, at the Orlando Airport this week is deplorable.  The T.S.A. system is flawed to allow a person to be demeaned and treated like a terrorist when she was just being who she was.

Time for a New Name for Cross-dressers?

Is it time for a new name for cross-dressers? The long used term transvestite has been buried, except for the few cross-dressers that are still comfortable using this term, as it doesn’t reflect the current description of  cross-dressing. Thus this term has been dropped by most of the community. The definition of transvestism (Merriam-Webster) is... Read more »
