Première unité médicale d'identité sexuelle dans les Asturies
La FELGT, la fédération nationale des lesbiennes, gays et transsexuels, se félicite de la décision prise par la principauté des Asturies d'ouvrir une unité spécialisée de médecine sur l'identité sexuelle et d'inclure dans les remboursements de la sécurité sociale, les traitements nécessaires aux transsexuel( le)s.

Transformative beginnings
Excerpt: Set in the first half of the 20th century, "The First Man-made Man" is a true account of the life of Michael Dillon, medical history's first female-to-male transsexual. Born Laura, the daughter of faded English aristocracy, Dillon struggles with the then-uncategorized certainty that she was meant to live life as a man, knowing she wouldn't be happy until that dream was realized. Testosterone therapy takes Laura to the beginning stages of manhood, and the first recorded sex change operation finishes the job.

Telling transgender's tale
Finally, everyone wants to hear the story Shelly Prevost has to tell.
The South Bay filmmaker's documentary "Trained in the Ways of Men" has San Jose's Cinequest Film Festival abuzz.
The story line of her film, which premieres tonight, follows the death of Gwen Araujo, the transgender teen from Newark who was beaten and dumped in the Sierra in 2002 after a group of young men discovered the attractive girl they had had sex with was anatomically male.

Sex change as firing offense doesn't add up
Heck no, he won't go.
That's the latest word from sleepy Largo, a rather tame headline in the sensational tale involving embattled City Manager Steve Stanton.
