polyblue: Getting Out

No, I don't mean getting out of your relationship--I mean getting out of the closet! I recently wrote an article on coming out of the poly closet, but there is still so much more to say. The different levels of being out, who to come out to, why to come out and why to stay in the closet. But sometimes coming out poly also means coming out bisexual, or gay, or genderqueer, et cetera. And then there is the "coming out" that is not poly at all (or swinging, or open, or whatever). How do you tell your parents that you may have been born female but you identify as male? How does a stone butch tell her girlfriend that she's stone? Is it hard? Easy?

I would love to hear your thoughts, stories, and input on this topic. x-posted at a few places.

This is my new video!

I've upped the quality a bit by using natural light, I know shitty, jerky videos are a pain in the arse to watch.

This is a selection of rants about feminism, sexist facebook groups and transphobic letters in the newspaper. Let's hope you find it entertaining.

fleakfragfry: this confusion

My wife and I don't believe in gender. Not really. Sometimes it seems like the whole world is so hung up on gender, so afraid of their own sexuality. We both have this insatiable desire for personal/sexual expression, but in this society, that tends to translate into apprehension, fear, and antisocial behavior. Way back in the stoneage (remember the 90's?) there was this freak badge of honor many of us loved to wear. Turns out all those freaky kids were really just a bunch of squares. And to tell the truth, I'm tired of feeling like a freak. I'm not a freak. I'm just a human who has an understanding of my own primal nature. Or some bullshit like that. Not to get all serious, I mean, I don't really take myself all that seriously, and I certainly can't call myself gay, or straight, or trans, and lately I don't even feel comfortable calling myself queer. I used to say I was a dike, but that's not right either. I don't wanna call myself anything. I don't want to call you anything either. Does this frustrate anyone else? If there's safety in numbers, is there any hope for our sense of security and acceptance?

baglieg: Australian national conference: Queer Collaborations 2009

What: Queer Collaborations is a national queer conference. It's full
of educational and activist-ey fun, with something for everyone.

Who? All trans, intersex, lesbian, bisexual, gay, etc people are
welcome. Usually about 90% of the delegates are university students.

Where? Canberra

When? July 13-18

How much does it cost? $45 + accommodation + food + travel

Is it really that great? Yes! You will learn cool stuff in the
workshops, and meet lots of interesting young people from around the
country. It's super fun.

For more info, contact qc09@anu.edu.au

If you are coming, please register by July 1st. If you're travelling
far you should book your travel tickets really soon, because those
bastards at the airlines charge way too much if you leave it to the
last minute.


PS if you can pass this message on to any groups I haven't sent it to,
I would love you for ever and ever.

baglieg: Sydney Mardi Gras (NSW Australia) (cross-posted)

Hi everybody!

A group of transsexual/transgender/crossdresser/genderqueer/etc people and our friends and partners are going to join the parade under the name "Tranny Panic!" with a general trans rights/trans pride theme. If you want to walk with us (come on, it's lots of fun!) then please email me at baglieg@gmail.com.

If you have a short snappy transsexual/transgender/crossdresser/genderqueer/etc related slogan you'd like to see on a placard, you can email me that too!

The parade is on the evening of the 7th of March. To be part of the parade you have to be there several hours before the parade starts, so plan to be in Sydney all afternoon. Book accommodation early if you're from out of town like me.
