Oops, We Did it Again

We’ve gone and added new content to TGForum! It’s our regular Monday Edition of new stuff to entertain, inform and provoke our loyal readers.

We begin today with an important message from our exalted leader . . . I mean our publisher, Miss JoAnn Roberts. As science fiction writer Robert Heinlein once wrote, “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” That means that we all pay for whatever we get — in one way or another. JoAnn’s message to readers is that it takes money to operate TGF. There are expenses associated with having the best weekly magazine for transgndered people on the whole damned planet, up and running 24/7. And JoAnn, being a hard working American publishing magnate, would like to make a little profit on the deal. Read her message for all the details and then forgo one new pair of pantyhose, a new lipstick, or a latte and snack, and make your small annual donation to help TGF flourish. It’s up to you. The more support we get the better we can be.

Our news coverage of the transgender community begins with the feature we call The Week In Transgenderism. We have sifted through the many millions of stories on the Internet and culled the ones containing a kernel of TG content. We’ve got the drag queen teaching drag on campus, there’s the controversy over an eleven-year-old born a boy but taking puberty blocking drugs, the problems TGs have in Indonesia, a TG judge has been named a transgender icon, a female drag queen from England, a couple of TWITs and a whole lot more. If you want to stay abreast of all the latest transgender news, I must instruct you — don’t miss your TWIT!

The Artist D is in the house today. Miss D is indeed a fabulous creature of extreme glamor and she wants to spread her knowledge of just how you become a glittering diva. In her column today she discusses the use of those glittering, shiny, exciting things called jewels — as well as shiny, lovely metals and other stuff that can be listed under the heading, accessories. The Artist D has one rule when it comes to accessories: Excess! Don’t miss out on her teaching. Be sure to read The Family Jewels.

Pamela DeGroff has done it again. She has compiled another of her TG music columns by tracking down an exciting young artist from Philadelphia who is making plenty of noise and generating lots of words. The bulk of Pamela’s Perpetual Change column is an interview with Leah B. Punk, poet, artist. All three words apply to Leah B., also the words “bass player.” Pamela rounds out the column with some music news on TG artists and cisgendered artists that you may find yourself dancing to. Don’t miss Perpetual Change.

Sophie Lynne has written a scary story for the Halloween season. It all takes place on a dark, spooky night. And it happens in a graveyard. A graveyard where a mysterious, ancient spirit may decide to take a hand. Or possible a leg. (Cue maniacal laughter.) Join Sophie for a scary tale she calls Halloween Spirit.

That’s our offering for this week! Check it out and make a donation to support our work on your behalf.
