ezs note:  Okay.  Mr. Vlaming is a devout Christian, I don't doubt that.  Tell me, sir, how many times does Jesus say that teachers address their students?  I'll give you a hint:  HE DOESN'T.  No matter priests or ministers contort this simple fact, it still remains a fact.  I feel for those students who like Mr. Vlaming, but his buffoonish behavior merits his dismissal.

ezs note:  Whoa... this could be interesting.  After reading The New York Times article, it still remains murky whether it will pass or not.  On the off chance that it would, Virginia seems most likely to pass it.  Virginia, please call your state senator and your House of Delegates member and ask them to vote YES on the Equal Rights Amendment.  If nothing else, it'll put your thumb into Herr Trump's eye.

Job fair!

ezs note:  This is a new feature for a transgender seeking new/better employment as a tool for better economic security.  A few tips: 1)  Dress professionally. If you need some pointers, Google here.  2)  Speak professionally.  Needless to say, no gum-chewing.  No matter how many butterflies you may have, speak and act confidently.  Need to speak proper English?  Google here .  3)  Do your freakin' homework.  Nothing is worse than going from a bad situation to an absolutely horrible one.  That goes double if you are transgender. Anyone can put 'LGBTs welcome' on a business card, but it's up to YOU to check it out.  If you can, talk to a few employees.  Check it out on Wikipedia.  If you are considering a mid to major corporation, see the HRC Corporate Equality Index.  

note: This is a random sampling of job fairs throughout US/Canada. To see more, type 'job fairs' under News.

Town/City: Lynchburg, VA
Location: Lynchburg City Armory
Date:  May 15
Time(s):  10 am to 3 pm
