You Are Being Tracked and Monitored

Tune out, turn off, drop in.



I cut off my cable service about two years ago, and I don't have access to non-pay broadcast television. At first, I had a little anxiety about disconnecting myself from the hive, but in all honesty, other than having to wait a day to stream the latest episode of "The Walking Dead," it hasn't made that much of a difference in my life.

No prom for this girl because her boyfriend is transgender

 photo enhanced-11636-1397599337-13_zpscebc2993.jpgAnais Celini, 18, attends Martin Luther High School in Maspeth, NY. She is a senior and was planning to go to the prom with her boyfriend, Nathaniel Baez. Not so fast says the private Christian high school. Nathaniel is transgender. The school says that this is "unconventional," so Nathaniel attending would not be "beneficial" to the proceedings.

Celini says the school views them as a same-sex couple.

Rather than engage the school in a knock-down/drag-out, the couple has decided to create their own prom.

I’m not going to fight them, that wasn’t the point. It’s a big night for everybody and I don’t want to cause a scene.

--Celini

Gender Prison: Respect after Death

 photo chrislee_zpsd2d67539.jpgChristopher Lee was a filmmaker and an activist. He was the first transman grand marshall of the LGBT Pride Parade in 2002. He was cofounder of San Francisco’s Transgender Film Festival in 1997, the world’s first transgender cultural festival.

Unfortunately Christopher committed suicide on December 22, 2012 at the age of 48. When his friend Chino Scott-Chung (Lee had been Scott-Chung’s best man at his wedding) went to retrieve Lee’s ashes, he was also handed a death certificate.

I looked at it, and it said female on it. And I asked her, ‘Why does it say female? He was male. You must have made a mistake.’”
--Chino Scott-Chung

Christopher had identified as a male for two decades. All of his documentation listed him as male. But in the box for Sex was the word “Female.”

That can’t be. He’s a man, and he has lived as man for close to twenty years.

--Scott-Chung told the employee

Christopher was fab-u-lous with a capital F-A-B. He always had beautifully shined boots and just an incredible look about him.

--Maya Scott-Chung, Chino’s spouse and Christopher’s friend
