A guy I've admired from afar for a long time, Buck Angel, speaks about trans* issues, outing and other obstacles at Amara's today.
I can't possibly stress how important Buck is for the whole trans* issue. In my head, I've always referred to him as a gendernaut - somebody who goes places most of us never do, and vastly expands our understanding of gender and sexuality. Do go and check the interview out.
He is really inspiring! I had not heard of him until I came across your link here and I have been reading about him ever since. He really is amazing.ReplyDelete
And the oddest of things is that his wife is a world renowned body piercer who as it turns out did my one and only piecing 18 years ago. It is the smallest of connections but in this big internet world so unexpected.
