Holy moly... seriously, I did not that I would bring this blog this far, over this many years... yet here I am. Or, far more appropriately, here we are. Gawd, it sounds so, so trite, yet I am truly humbled by this endeavor.
I will bring a bit of transgender news each day from the state, country and world. Please, do your part and give 'em hell.

Connecticut - Rainbow Wave In Connecticut: GOP Fields 6 LGBTQ Candidates For Legislature In General Election
ezs note: Umm... okay... Please, don't get me wrong. Even though I'm a Democrat, there are some areas which I tend to be a bit conservative. But, dude, you've got a President who is an ever-psychotic and a Congress which, at best, is mostly complacent and, at worst, is a complete suckup. Before the election I would say follow your conscience. But this ain't no ordinary time.

ezs note: A few tips for you:
1) Get tested now. You need not wait any longer, I promise you.
2) If your partner balks at wearing a condom, say NO. If he still refuses, the jerk's not worth it.
3) If you test positive, see what options are available. In Connecticut (and all around New England, really) there are options available.

ezs note: Tonight, I was about to watch Stephen Colbert when, on an impulse, I switched to another channel. It was the Connecticut House of Representatives - and they were debating a very important bill. It would change the system from the House of Delegates to a popular 'one person, one vote' method.
I, for one, think that a popular vote is far better than the creaky House of Delegates. I hope that you do too. However, just wishing for it will not make it happen. Call your state Representative and state Senator.
Is it easy? Nope. Never said it was. But you have to be a part of things, pal
