The Trans 100 List

Our very own Drago Renteria is on the inaugural Trans 100 List!

This groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind, list is an “overview of the breadth and diversity of work being done in, by, and for the transgender community across the United States”.  It features pioneers, key leaders and movement-builders in the transgender community.

“The value of the work that is represented by the 100 people on this list is immeasurable,” said Executive Director of This Is H.O.W., Antonia D’orsay, about the Trans 100. “These people demonstrate the diversity, the determination, and the incredible triumph of spirit that informs all trans people, no matter where they are. This is just a glimpse of what trans people can accomplish.”

TRANS*  I recently adopted the term “trans*” (with the asterisk) in my writing. I think you should, too. If it’s new to you, let me help clarify. Trans* is one word for a variety of identities that are incredibly diverse, but share one simple, common denominator: a trans* person is not your traditional cisgender wo/man.  Beyond that, there is a lot of variation.

Gender Grammar

Problem: “transgendered” (adjective)
Correction: transgender

Austin Unbound Documentary

From the age of three, Austin knew that his female anatomy did not fit him. In middle school, he changed his name and began to dress as a boy. His family thought it was a phase, but he persisted. Now he will get surgery so he can breathe freely and finally, swim in public. Austin Unbound is a documentary about a man who is deaf and trans.
