Good Monday everyone. It’s time for the TGForum Monday Edition! I hope you remembered to set your clocks forward an hour for the ritual of Daylight Savings Time? Otherwise you’ll think you’re reading this an hour earlier than you really are. But, enough of this fannying about. You want to know what we’ve got in The Monday Edition.

The Week In Transgenderism by News Editor Ronnie Rho leads off this week. Ronnie has gathered all the TG news she could lay a mouse on and has dragged it into her TWIT file for processing. The result is a steamy mess of hot TG news culled from last week’s Internet headlines. She has the story about the drag show at NYU. There’s the interview with the star of Priscilla… on Broadway, news of Candace Cayne opening a high class supper club, the true story behind Dog Day Afternoon, and a passel o’ twits. For all the TG news you need don’t miss your TWIT.

TGF contributor Sophie Lynne took a trip to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania this past weekend for The Third Annual Keystone Conference sponsored by the TransCentral PA. The Conference grows every year and Sophie reports that there were three hundred hotel rooms reserved for the event. She had just arrived back home when she filed this report. Find out what you missed by not attending and read Keystone Come and Gone.

Russell Kane

Last Monday’s TWIT had a story about an English comic, Russell Kane, who dressed in drag and performed to a Beyoncé song for a charity program called Let’s Dance for Comic Relief. This week we dig a bit deeper into the story and bring you several drag performances from that show. Even though several of the performers are comedians their foray into drag for charity is done in a pretty serious manner. One even goes en pointe for his ballet routine. Check out their performances in Deeper Into TWIT.

Perpetual Change, our musical TGs column, is with us this week. In this month’s column Pamela DeGroff covers a “poetry band” from The Isle of Wight that’s fronted by vocalist/poet Phaedra Kelly. The band is called Ecurbrekal, which Ms. Kelly explains is the name of a Turkish alchemist from long ago who was reputed to be a shapeshifter. For all the info on Ecurbekal check out Pam’s interview with Phaedra in this month’s Perpetual Change.

We wrap up today’s new content with TG fiction from a young lady who just conducted a workshop on the subject. Read Crying For Ogre — Part 4 and give Sophie Lynne a grade on her work. In our last installment “Ogre” found himself becoming less and less a butch rugby player and more like a female fashion model. How long can he go on avoiding contact with his frat brothers? What will the team think? Will they like his breasts? How come his clothes keep changing into sexy girl outfits? Read Crying For Ogre — Part 4.

That’s our new content for this Monday Edition. Enjoy!
