Gender-identity proposal spans mind-body divide
New York City's Board of Health in November 2006 proposed a plan that would allow people to change their sex on their birth certificate regardless of whether they had a sex-change surgery. The only requirement for the change was that the applicants must change their name and prove that they had lived as their desired gender for at least two years. The next month, however, New York City's Board of Health decided to withdraw its proposal because of various concerns.

AMC Hires Tranny To Play Tranny!
ABC soap All My Children got a bit of flack when they hired Jeffrey Carlson to play their now-legendary character, rockstar Zarf (who has since become Zoe). And with good reason - it's not like there aren't any tranny actors out there. Shit, when was the last time Kim Basinger had a gig?
All My Children's Trans Action
All My Children is still following through with its Zarf/Zoe storyline. And while Zoe (as she's known now, and played to the hilt by actor Jeffrey Carlson) has been caught up in all the usual soap opera drama (coming out, accused of murder, arrested, beaten in a park, obsessively in love with Bianca, the town's beloved lesbian) the show seems committed to fully exploring Zoe's journey as a trans person.

I want to applaud Largo Mayor Pat Gerard for her courage, rationality, intelligence and understanding in this time of hysterical bigotry, prejudice, superstition and ignorance of gender ambiguities inherited in the genes by some people, through no fault of their own.
