    PD 98 "What Transwomen National Is Really About"

    in LGBT

    As of June 1, 2015, Sienna became known as Transwomen National.  Much like a transgender person the name change isn't the cause of change but is the result of change.  Holly will talk about the process that took place and the decisions how we would move forward.

    PD 102 "When Do You Get Rid of the Man Box?"

    in LGBT

    The Man Box is a container that a transwomen creates and carries with her when she is out and obout just in case she needs to do a "quick change" back to male mode.  There are things to consider when you create a man box and things to consider when you get rid of it. I, of course as always, have a different persective on this and I will share that with you and the deeper ramifications of the whole concept.

    International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers.

    in Entertainment

    Sex Workers Outreach Project joins sex workers, allies and advocates from around the world in recognizing December 17, the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers. As we approach this day, we come together to remember those  lost this year and renew our commitment to the on-going struggle for empowerment, visibility, and rights for all sex workers.


    On December 17th, We also renew our commitment to solidarity. The majority of violence against sex workers is not just violence against sex works—it’s also violence against transwomen, against women of color, against drug users, against immigrants. We cannot end the marginalization and victimization of all sex workers without also fighting trans-phobia, racism, stigma and criminalization of drug use, and xenophobia.

    PD 96 "What we can all learn from Gandhi's 10 Rules for Changing the World"

    in LGBT

    I have to admit I admire people that have experienced adversity and then emerged from it.  They may come out with scars but they have been tested and they have survived.  It is really difficult for me to listen to the advice of those that have not experienced powerful adversity.  Really, how do they know anything about life?


    I love quotes from some of these people like Helen Keller.  Have you read some of her stuff?  Amazing.  She saw so much!  Here are just three.  If you want to see some of her quotes, go here.


    You would say that the First Lady would not know adversity but the wisdom of Eleanor would disagree, I believe.  Did you know her parents and her brothers all died while Eleanor was very young?  She endured the unfaithfulness of a husband (duh).  She fought strongly for women's rights but also for the civil rights for African Americans and Asian Americans which was very controversial in the early 1900's.  Here are a few of her quotes:


    So a guy names Henrik Edherg published "Gandhi's Rules for Changing the World" that I think continue to exist and may always exist but what did Gandhi know, right?  Well, he had adversity, experience and time and that often translate to wisdom so, I believe, he knew a lot about Changing the World.  Here is that article.


    The plan is to relate what these three said with what is going on with the Trans community and how these teachings influence Transwomen National.
