TGF Monday Edition with Angela GardnerJust when you expect it least Monday sneaks up on you and pounces. For many the thought of another Monday morning is fraught with trauma — oh no not back to work! But, don’t forget, the best thing about Monday is it means it’s time for the TGForum Monday Edition!

We begin with a massive, TG news packed This Week In Transgenderism. Every week our News Editor Ronnie Rho sifts through the debris of Google, Bing, Yahoo and other more arcane search engines to dig up the most TG related news. This week she has succeeded in finding stories on Ts on reality television (great name for them. There’s very little “real” about those shows), the Aussie surf champ who’s now a lovely lady, the teen who was turned away from the prom in Guam for showing up in a dress, Vancouver pride, and more people upset with mayor Stu’s choices. Not the wardrobe choices — the choice of how Stu defended wearing the hot,club outfit at a mayoral speaking event. I gotta say Stu, you don’t wear a slutty dress to the PTA meeting. Being TG is not a license to dress like a tramp for official business.  After hours…

Our overworked and under paid music columnist Pamela DeGroff has got another Perpetual Change for us this month and like the title implies, it’s about a musician/singer who has appeared in PC before as Yolanda. This time he’s back as Roger Mapes. Why the gender switch for performing? Only one way to learn (and see Roger and Yolanda pix), ya gotta read Perpetual Change.

Dedicated TG historian Michelle Moore continues her exploration of the early support groups in this month’s TG History. She tells us more about Virginia Prince and the others who started to take crossdressing  out of the closet in the ’60s. Want to know more about Transvestia magazine, the start of Tri-Ess and the connection between Transvestia and Sexology magazine? Don’t miss TG History.

That’s it for this Monday Edition of TGF. Thanks for all the comments on Linda Jensen’s article last Monday. If you haven’t seen it or made a comment check it out. It’s about how we balance our masculine and feminine sides. My feminine side is saying it’s time to wrap up this summary of today’s edition and curl up in bed. My masculine side agrees since he’s got to get up early and hit the road to New York. (I always let him do the driving.)
