Life With A Side of Wine

"if we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back" regina brett.

Now, I’m sure by now that everyone has noticed that the internet exploded when Caitlyn Jenner appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair. And that’s really not surprising…because I feel like that’s kind of what the internet does every other day about one thing or another. In case you haven’t, here is the picture worth a thousand words right now:

And of course my facebook feed is now full of people debating about this, supporting this or saying not so nice things. Also typical. One of these friends, whom I greatly respect actually posted this photo as well:

And I just thought it was so funny (in a really not funny at all way) that these people and the trials they have faced are being compared as if they ever could be. Have you heard of the quote “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its…

Being Outed

Tam is Trans*

Hey everyone!

Just to make something clear before I write what I’m going to write, I am not directed this to any one person specifically, and this is not coming from a hateful place. I’m saying all of this in a general sense on my behalf, and not in a way to bash anybody.

So as the title implies, I’ll be talking about what it’s like to be outed. This means that someone finds out about one’s identity without them being ready for the person to know or them not wanting that person to know. Sometimes this can happen just by the other person finding out, or it could be someone who mentions it and they weren’t supposed to.

My entire life, that has happened to me, and not just about topics related to my sexual orientation or my gender identity. I’ve always had people tell others about personal things…

Changing the Struggle – How we can learn from Caitlyn Jenner and each other

The Amazing MJ

I am bisexual.

I have never explicitly stated this on social media before. Nor have I forcibly tried to hide it. I do not proclaim it in public, but if asked, I will always be honest.

I am bisexual.

I am not ashamed to claim this sexuality. In fact, I would consider myself a proud member of the LGBTQ community. In light of recent events (Caitlyn Jenner’s events to be specific), I have a few things I would like to say.

Coming out was THE hardest thing I have ever done.

When I was a child, I thought homosexuality was wrong. Those people who transitioned, liked their own gender, or dressed as the wrong gender were the people that I should stay away from.

I cannot, by any means, complain about the way I was raised. I have two wonderful parents who chose to raise me in the church and…

Thoughts on Transgender Living and Judgment of Those Who Do

Rick Howerton

word_gender2_WEB

This week Bruce Jenner is on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine… dressed seductively as a woman. He is now the poster child for transgender living and has been deemed a hero by many. Why a hero? Because, it is believed by the masses that he stepped out of his false self and into his real self. But is this true? Did he become the person he was meant to be or did he embrace a reality that was never intended for him?

For those of us who are Christ followers, we don’t get to make this determination based on what we wish was true, what the majority has decided to be so, or what would make life easier for us as we discuss this issue with friends. Because we follow Christ and His teachings we must ask ourselves what God says through His Word, the Bible, when it comes…

Review: Memories, by Valentina Heart (Rating: 3/5)

Just Love: Queer Book Reviews

Memories, by Valentina Heart
Publisher: Less Than Three Press (June 3, 2015)
Page Count: approx. 80 pages (18,000 words)
Summary: When Marlin comes home one night, she is greeted by the sight of her man, Gabe, spread out on the bed waiting for her. Accepting all the love he has to offer has been a long process, but recounting all it took to get where they are is a reminder that every step was worth it.
Warnings: mentions of rape, suicide, and transphobia

Cover Artist: Natasha Snow Cover Artist: Natasha Snow

Over the period of one night, Marlin and Gabe recount how they met and the events that led them to where they are at present. It’s a lovely story, with a ton of steamy sex scenes mixed in, and throughout the novel there’s no doubting Gabe’s love of Marlin, and Marlin’s love of Gabe.

Marlin is a trans…

‘Call me Caitlyn’

Travellingfeetjo

call me caitlynBeing a transgender, cisgender, is not uncommon to us especially when we come from India where we see transgender people more often on the traffic lights beating their hands in a certain way or on the trains or barging in someone’s house when a child is born or on a wedding. In India there is a certain phobia circling these kinds of people; a phobia of sorts. But one thing that is similar among all the feelings that we have for these people is the feeling of fear and apathy. Fear because we think that this community are a special kind and upsetting them might invite wrath of the gods; and apathy because we see them as people who are different.

The ‘Hijra’ or the transgender community has held place in the subcontinent from ancient times. But even now the Hijras have limited opportunities for employment and so can be…
