"I recently spoke to black trans activist Aaryn Lang, who described what it has been like for her to experience Transgender Day of Remembrance in her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, a state that has seen nine murders of trans people since 2012, all of them women, seven of them black. 'It almost to me feels like people gathering every other day of the year could have done something to prevent or to shift what was going on in this community,' she said." -- Meredith Talusan, "On Trans Day of Remembrance, we must do much more than remember", 2015-11-19

"Many of us who are LGBTQ go through a second adolescence because our first (5-18 yo) is about suppressing identity. So when we do get into our 20's we make A LOT of mistakes that most attribute to younger people because we never got to be younger people in our true identity." -- George M Johnson, 2017-11-10

digitalwave @ 05:45 pm: Help with medical bills...
Hi Guys! We've had more unexpected medical bills to pay this month making everything very tight money-wise for us again. Especially with Thanksgiving coming up next week and our not getting paid again until the 30th.

In order to be proactive, I've posted jewelry, Bath & Body products and even a nice collection of books and iPhone 6, 6s & 7 Phone Cases to my online store the last few days! I've even got some never worn clothing items I got with Christmas and birthday money posted. There'll be a lot more to come. You can find everything here:

http://stores.ebay.com/Barbaras-Essentials

If you see anything you'd like, but don't like using eBay, just let me know, we can figure out what postage will be then add it on. I can do checks but would prefer PayPal if possible. My PayPal addy is bstaton @ iglou.com, without the spaces. Also, could help me spread the word about my having stuff up for sale. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a fanzine related question, too. Last year I took part in a kickstarter campaign to produce a Captain America Stucky Anthology called Not Without You. They were successful beyond their wildest dreams so when it came it was a 345 page Hard Cover fanzine with Full Color artwork throughout, Foil Coloring on the cover, a satin bookmark and Gilt edges. I actually ended up with two copies of the zine sent to me plus the digital version.

Much as I hate to, because we need the money, I'd like to try and sell both of them but have no idea on how to price them. Here are some example pages from the zine:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KdsaOjiQk8InPh-yfqXkoymqld9iWYho

Any ideas? Would anyone here be interested in them?

To end on a hopeful note, one of the things I've been working on to try and help us has finally come through. We've been accepted into the Wells Fargo Home Preservation program so, starting in December, our house payment will be going down by a few hundred dollars a month. I'm really hoping that this will give us some much need breathing room as I can get things caught up and current. Wish me luck guys. It sure would be nice to have a bit more stability around here.

*hugs*

"This notion of transgender deception pervades our culture. [...]

"This same thing is at the heart of the transgender bathroom arguments, with people conflating transgender people with sexual predators using trans public accommodation rights as a cover for violent illegal activities.

"The big irony of it all is that, by living our authentic lives in the genders we have spent so long coming to an understanding of, we are by extension being far more open and honest to the world about who we are. We are shedding an identity that was the true deception, crafted to conceal our deepest secrets. We are literally showing you who we really are, while being brushed off as being deceptive for not remaining in a gender identity that was false."

-- Gwendolyn Ann Smith, 2017-04-27

Hi guys! Sorry this is so late, I fell asleep waiting for the files to upload earlier. My sinus infection is back, Lee's sick, too. It's really been kicking my butt, I'm on antibiotics now so that should help. I've got stuff to tell you but that will be a separate post, hopefully, tomorrow.

It was another good episode, though. Will be interesting to see where they take us next week. I can't believe we'll have a new episode for Thanksgiving! What'd you guys think? Love it, hate it? I can't wait to see what everyone has to say. :)

The files are almost finished uploading. Once they're done, just follow the links below and then click to download whichever format you'd like best.

PS
I realized after I'd uploaded the files that I misspelled the episode name, Tomestone instead of Tombstone. I didn't want you to have to wait while I re-uploaded them so just be sure to correct the name once you have it. Sorry, that's what I get for doing stuff while medicated. ;)

Hope that everyone is doing okay. *hugs you hard*

"When I was a child I knew that trans people existed, but I knew I couldn't possibly be one of them. I was going to make history, not be some freak on television. My self-discipline and self-hatred marched in lock-step." "Coming Out as Transgender Made Me a More Effective CIA Officer", The Atlantic, 2017-03-20

"Each time I rode by, soaked and cold, there were just the two of us and he must have seen my headlamp through the blackness. His jazz melody floated in the air between us -- and, at first, I imagined each of us wondering about the sanity of other. But then, as winter wore on, I imagined we stopped wondering." -- Jamie McNally, "Winter Saxophone", February 2011

"Now it's all designed to blow our minds
 But our minds won't really be blown
 Like the blow that'll gitcha when you get your picture
 On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

"(Rollin' Stone...) Wanna see our pictures on the cover
 (Stone...) Wanna buy five copies for our mothers
 (Stone...) Wanna see my smilin face
 On the cover of the Rollin' Stone"

-- Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show, singing "On the Cover of Rolling Stone", written by Shel Silverstein

[The first issue of Rolling Stone was 1967-11-09]

"Is it a fact -- or have I dreamt it -- that by means of electricity, the world of matter has become a great nerve, vibrating thousands of miles in a breathless point of time? Rather, the round globe is a vast head, a brain, instinct with intelligence: or shall we say it is itself a thought, nothing but thought, and no longer the substance which we dreamed it." -- Nathaniel Hawthorne (b. 1804-07-04, d. 1864-05-19), The House of the Seven Gables, 1851
