Walk and Talk with Gabrielle #5
“When you look like a man in a dress…”
In a 2015 TIME interview, Caitlyn Jenner commented, “When you look like a man in a dress, it makes people uncomfortable.” It was a rather unpopular statement among transgender people… but was she right?
Walk and Talk with Gabrielle #4 – Bisexual, Pansexual, Polyamory, and Monogamy Myths & Realities. What kind of assumptions have people made about you because of your sexual orientation? What kind of assumptions have you caught yourself making about others, in this regard?
Line in the Sand
This short documentary by University of Rochester student and talented filmmaker: Hayden Freedman, explores being transgender in a society that doesn’t quite understand “transgender”. Trans woman: Natalie Robin shares some of her experiences in coming out, gender roles/expectations and discusses a rather questionable suggestion from her therapist.
Also included are interviews with my friend and mentor: Jeanne Gainsburg, Education Director for the Gay Alliance, and another trans woman you may be familiar with: me.
Natalie has a YouTube channel and Tumblr blog where she shares her transition progress, thoughts and feelings. I encourage you to check out her offerings and maybe send her a little love and support in a thoughtful comment.
Because I felt like sharing a beautiful day and a smile
This short video was recorded a couple of days ago. A friend and I were “tabling” volunteers for the GAGV downtown Rochester at the Metro Center for SUNY Brockport during their Wellness Fair this past Wednesday (April 16, 2014).
