Indiana wants to make it harder for trans people to get drivers’ licenses / LGBTQ Nation

Right now, anyone who wants to change their gender marker on an Indiana ID has to bring “an amended birth certificate or a letter signed and dated by a doctor” to the state’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). But the newly proposed rule will add needless hurdles and costs for trans people who just want an ID that matches their gender identity.

Olga Neuwirth’s adaption of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando deals with duality and trans identity

The hallowed stage of the Vienna State Opera has seen a lot: superstar performers, premieres, scandals and moments of musical history. But in all its 150 years, the house has never staged an opera written by a woman. That will change next month, with the premiere of Olga Neuwirth’s operatic version of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando.

“I really want to shake up this old-fashioned, beautiful, wonderful place a bit,” said Neuwirth, a 51-year-old Austrian composer, in a backstage interview during rehearsals at the opera house.

LGB Alliance has 12 questions for potential MPs but none about LGB rights

In case there was any doubt as to the LGB Alliance being anti-trans, not pro LGB
At the risk of belabouring the point, let us simply note that every one of those questions is about transgender people in some way. A cynic might also observe that several of the questions are based on a false premise (“gender-critical feminism” isn’t really what I’m looking for in a sexual partner, sorry!), scaremongering (trans people are dangerous to children!) and our old friend, trans moral panic (they want to teach kids to be trans!).

The Irony of the TERF War Over “Feminine” Products | Dame Magazine

There’s something profoundly sad in how little transphobic feminists realized the implications of their own work; this was a movement that prized androgynous and masculine-of-center aesthetics, that theorized complicated post-human workarounds for processes like childbirth, that argued endlessly for the distinction between assigned sex stereotypes and the true inner self.

Long-term mental health benefits of gender-affirming surgery for transgender individuals | EurekAlert! Science News

For transgender individuals, gender-affirming surgery can lead to long-term mental health benefits, according to new research published online today in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

A viral fake news story linked trans health care to 'thousands' of deaths

The problem is: the “thousands” of people who die while taking these drugs are likely the terminally ill cancer patients who receive hormone blockers to fight hormone-sensitive cancers, like prostate cancer, according to experts.

Medical Leaders Speak Up for Trans Health | National Center for Transgender Equality

While the tens of thousands of voices resisting the Trump administration can help us make a huge impact, the voices of major medical leaders and organizations have joined yours in demanding HHS protect health care access for 2 million transgender Americans.

TERFs: the rise of “trans-exclusionary radical feminists,” explained - Vox

The key to understanding why a self-proclaimed radical feminist group would side with conservatives arguing for the right to force cisgender women into skirts at work is to understand who #TERFs are and what they’ve been up to for the past 50 years. Because now, under the Trump administration and a conservative-majority Supreme Court, their alliance with these far-right groups could have lasting, widespread consequences for trans civil rights — and for the rights of women in general.

National Center for Transgender Equality has endured multiple bomb threats over the past year / LGBTQ Nation

Always at the back of my mind. When will the hatred directly affect me?
One of the egregious examples are the multiple bomb threats that have been endured by NCTE. As the largest and most prominent national group, they’ve become the face of the transgender rights movement during a time when the administration has worked doggedly to strip the community of legal recognition and basic humanity.

Watch these people intervene when a trans woman is prevented from using the bathroom / LGBTQ Nation

When she returned, the woman who started the issue confronts her as to why she accompanied the transgender woman to the restroom. In reply, the good Samaritan said, “I’m a Christian, so, like, I have certain beliefs. You just got to love people the way you’re supposed to love people. And if she feels comfortable using the women’s bathroom, she’s not hurting anyone.”

Philly Man Bullied to Death For Dating a Transgender Woman | Planet Transgender

A video went viral of Maurice Willoughby, a 20-year-old Philidelphia cisgender black man being heckled relentlessly by contemporaries on a city street. Willougby reacted passionately, at times nearly coming to blows with the antagonists who accused him of being gay, in the crudest way, because of his relationship with Faith Palmer, his transgender girlfriend. According to multiple news and blog sites, Maurice “Reese Him Daddie” as he was known on Facebook ended his life by suicide yesterday.

DOJ says Christian employers should be allowed to make women wear skirts

With that, this case isn't just a problem for transgender workers. It's a problem for any employee who doesn't conform to "traditional" notions of how men and women should behave and dress. As long as the employer says that their religion requires them to impose sex-specific dress codes, as Rost did here, they can presumably fire anyone who doesn't fall in line.

Die Berliner Presse nennt sie „Hauptmännin von Köpenick“. Zwei Jahre gelang es der geschlechtsoperierten Frau K. (22), sich als Polizistin auszugeben. Dabei nahm sie Personalien auf und half bei Einsätzen. Wie die falsche Polizistin aufflog und was daraus folgt, erklärt Stephan Kelm von der Gewerkschaft der Polizei in Berlin im Sputnik-Interview.

Sign and send the petition: Trans people deserve equal, just, and safe access to medical care.

The Trump administration has proposed a regulation to roll back LGBTQ+ rights and allow doctors, nurses, and hospitals to discriminate against trans people based on their own false beliefs about gender and sexuality. This rule jeopardizes the lives and well-being of millions of trans people across the country, at a time when healthcare access is already difficult. We must stop it. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is collecting public comments on this proposed rule. We must do all we can to show our opposition and demand that all trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people receive safe medical care access.
