Comemora-se hoje mais um TDOR (Transgender Day Of Rememberance). Hoje é o dia em que se relembram tod@s @s que viram a sua vida ser ceifada devido a actos de transfobia.

Um dia de vigílias e outras comemorações em que toda uma comunidade e os seus aliados avivam e honram a memória de pessoas transgénero assassinadas.

Um dia que convém nunca esquecer.

E por tod@s que tombaram por esse mundo fora.

Depois de cinco décadas, Phedra de Córdoba volta a Cuba e conta ao Mix como foi esse retorno
Phedra de Córdoba hoje é um nome conhecido no meio teatral, principalmente em São Paulo, na Praça Roosevelt, famosa por concentrar vários palcos de diferentes companhias em apenas uma quadra. Mas nos anos 1950, quando teve que sair de Cuba por ser travesti, a atriz não era muito bem quista e seu trabalho no teatro, mesmo que reconhecido por alguns poucos diretores, não encontrava futuro porque muita gente achava ela “pintosa”.

U.S. surgeon explores the Feminization of the Transsexual
Looking feminine is, of course, extremely important to you. First impressions are often based just upon your face. That which is first seen in an initial contact is frequently what defines you. It establishes not only who you are, but often what sex you are as well. As a transsexual, perhaps nothing is more important to you than appearing sexually the same as you feel emotionally. Facial feminizing surgery can help bring these two together.

Autogynephilia: The Infallible Derogatory Hypothesis, Part 2
Dr. Blanchard’s taxonomy of “autogynephilia” and “homosexual transsexualism” follows a long tradition of dividing transsexual women into categorical buckets based on sexual orientation. A premise in American psychiatry/psychology has traditionally held that male-to-female transsexualism is a phenomenon of effeminate male homosexuality, while the label of “transvestism” is associated with heterosexual men. Hence, diagnostic nomenclature and research literature have for decades favored candidates for surgical transition care who would have heterosexual outcomes (i.e., transwomen attracted to men). [1]
