New surgical technique

Hayley Anthony is a transgender woman who helped design a new surgical technique for male to female gender affirmation surgery.

Dr. Jess Ting is director of surgery at the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai in New York City.

Important information I do not have available is the names of the doctors in India who actually made the medical advance. Anthony discovered a paper on their research somewhere on the web and shared it with Dr. Ting.

His friends say he was not transgender

Anthony Torres, an activist, artist and DJ who is known as Bubbles, was reportedly shot and killed on the same block as the New Century strip club on Larkin and Myrtle streets around 3 a.m., according to his attorney Jim Reilly.

This is a hate crime. The details are still coming out… For a transgender activist to be gunned down on [his] own street shouldn’t stand and won’t stand.

Responding

Renee Thomas is a 59-year-old architect and lighting designer living in Des Moines, Iowa. She grew up in the Bay Area of California, so she has always been drawn to the water.

But Thomas also is well aware of the ocean's fury. Like many, she watched in horror when the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina and water flooded neighborhoods, forcing people to await rescue on roofs and highway overpasses.

White nationalist pepper-sprays transgender person in Asbury Park

Allie Koralik is a non-binary, transgender resident of Long Branch, NJ. Koralik was making signs Sunday at a gallery on the boardwalk in Asbury Park for a Stand Against Hate rally when they were approached by Morris May, 22 of Scotch Plains and his 20-year-old brother, who were carrying a Trump 2020 sign.

My brother and I are both hard-core conservatives I support three things: liberty, free speech and the Republican Party.

--May

An argument ensued and then Morris May sprayed pepper spray in Koralik's face.
