It’s that time of the week again, time for the work grind to start, and also time for the TGForum Monday Edition. We begin with The Week In Transgenderism, News Editor Ronnie Rho’s distillation of all the Internet searches she can possibly conduct in a weeks time to find all the TG news in the world. She’s got the story of the kerfuffle over the Saturday Night Live digital short that features hairy faced men growing breasts. You’ll find more on trans fashion models, Brittany Novotny’s “gets better video,” a crossdresser character on Coronation Street, could Craig Ferguson’s “half sister” be the next kerfuffle? And a whole lot more, all in TWIT.

Linda Jensen joins us today with a post she calls Public Acceptance: We’re Getting There. Linda postulates that TGs are gaining more and more acceptance by society and it’s getting a lot easier to be a man in women’s clothes while you’re out and about. Or, that should be “oot and aboot,” since Linda is from Canada. Maybe that’s why she thinks it’s getting better for TGs. The Canadians are all so polite how could they ever be mean to a crossdresser or TS? Find out how it is in Linda’s neighborhood and how it is for several of her friends as they, CDs and TSs, report on how they have been treated by the public at large. Don’t miss Public Acceptance: We’re Getting There.

Last week I sent an email to all TGF readers asking what television shows or films had male characters dressed as ladies that inspired you to strive to one day get into a dress. Many readers said that just the strong, beautiful females they saw on TV and in the movies acted as inspiration for them to get glamorous. Others did say they were impressed by such diverse drag on screen as Bugs Bunny, Bosom Buddies and the androgyny of David Bowie and the hair bands on MTV. So today I’ve put together a short post, with pictures, called Dragspiration On Screen. If you think of other drag that influenced you when you were a kid let me know and we’ll put together more pictures of the characters.

That’s it for this Monday Edition! Enjoy!
