Boards Up

The Boards are now fit & working again.

In the Meanwhile

Here’s a nice photo of us from the event at Bounce, in Cleveland. I really do feel like an idiot for not having brought our (albeit crappy) camera, at least.

Boards Down

Our community forums seem to be down temporarily. We’ll get them back up just as soon as we can.

Women & Children First

I read a few years ago at Women & Children First, and I’m happy to say I’m going back to do a reading from She’s Not the Man I Married, since it became one of my favorite bookstores in the… Continue Reading

Chicago Be-All

The Chicago Be-All starts today, although I/we won’t be presenting until Saturday. At 2PM Saturday, Betty will join me in talking about our experiences with transness & the media: Trans Visibility & Media Author Helen Boyd and her partner Betty… Continue Reading

Amancio Corrales Update

An arrest has finally been made in the murder of Amancio Corrales. We’ve been waiting nearly two years for this news.

Amtrak, Pt. 2

We depart Cleveland tonight, or this morning, at something around 3am, depending on if the train arrives on time or not (it is, effectively, the same train we got off of Friday morning), and around 10am we’ll be in Chicago.… Continue Reading


I had a great, “full circle” kind of moment tonight, getting a chance to hang out with a couple who were on the original CDOD list back in 2000. Amazing to be with a couple who not only survived but… Continue Reading

Book Lists

I was just poking around to see if Julia Serano’s Whipping Girl is listed yet (it is), & happened to find Jessica Valenti’s favorite feminist book list. Of course she has her own book listed as one of them,… Continue Reading

Welcoming Cleveland

I was a little surprised when our host sent me some of the information about events we’d be doing this weekend, among them a visit with Lutherans and another with a UCC congregation. Neither Betty nor myself have been involved… Continue Reading

Update: Trans Partners Group

Just to let people know, the Trans Partners Group at the Center on 13th Street will be ongoing this summer. We’ll be meeting June 13th (since I’m doing a reading on 6/6), July 11th (in order to avoid July 4th)… Continue Reading

On the Borders

Yesterday, while buying a cup of tea at the Borders I was about to do a book signing in, I heard the announcement for me and my book over the store’s loudspeakers. Quite surreal, and made me realize that Betty… Continue Reading

June 6

Next week I’ll be doing a reading with a few other Seal Press authors at the McNally Robinson bookstore here in New York. I’m pleased to get to meet both of my fellow authors: Jessica Valenti, of Feministing, and author… Continue Reading

Checking in from Cleveland

So far, we are having a lovely time in Cleveland: our host is as gracious as we could want, & the two events today were interesting and enjoyable. Other than our train getting in 1.5 hours late (which meant a… Continue Reading

The Right Profile

Looking to the future, or just to the seat Endymion is occupying that she’d rather be sitting in. Later today I’ll be doing a reading at Loganberry Books in Cleveland, from 4-6PM. If you’re in that neck of the woods,… Continue Reading

Hello, Cleveland!

We leave on Thursday and will be on the train until very early Friday morning. Our first stop in Cleveland is Loganberry Books in Shaker Heights, Friday night, 4-6PM. Do come if you’re in that neck of the woods. In… Continue Reading

Baltimore Gig

It looks like I’m going to doing a reading at a sex shop called Sugar, in Baltimore – lesbian owned, run by women & trans. How cool is that? 7Pm, June 13th.

The Greeks* & Now the English

Hey, it works in the UK: Since the British military began allowing homosexuals to serve in the armed forces in 2000, none of its fears — about harassment, discord, blackmail, bullying or an erosion of unit cohesion or military effectiveness… Continue Reading

That One Clause

Some disturbing news about the currently pending hate crimes bill, which passed the House and is waiting to pass the Senate (& then, likely as not, will face veto from the president), is now possibly being stripped of it its… Continue Reading
