La crueldad de la televisión, o la historia mediática de Zulma Lobato.
Veintitrés minutos y quince segundos es el tiempo que dedicó Crónica TV a burlarse de Zulma Lobato la primera vez que la llevaron al piso. Otros dos minutos y cuarenta y ocho segundos de aire sirvieron para mostrarla cantando a capella “Resistiré”. Ella parecía no darse cuenta de que la estaban ridiculizando, pese a los esfuerzos de la conductora para que el público lo notara. La travesti, de 51 años, que llegó a la televisión luego de una vida llena de obstáculos, estaba emocionada por la “oportunidad” de cantar en la pantalla chica y agradeció sinceramente a Héctor Ricardo García, dueño del canal y marido de Anabella Ascar, la conductora del programa. Zulma agradecía y Anabella se moría de risa. (Foto)

Paula Viturro, jurista: "La discriminación hacia travestis es mayor que hacia gays de clase media"
Una sociedad se revela democrática no sólo por su sistema de gobierno, sino también por su capacidad de aceptar o no las identidades de género de los demás y los modos de ejercer públicamente las sexualidades.
De las identidades de género y los modos de ejercicio de la sexualidad surgen tensiones en el espacio público que ponen de manifiesto actitudes humillantes e ideologías sexistas. En el trato que reciben las personas, en el cuidado de su diversidad, está en juego el respeto -o no- de su autonomía. Además, ¿acaso una sociedad democrática e igualitaria podría legítimamente humillar a gays o travestis? Paula Viturro es una exploradora de estas problemáticas, las cuales muestran prejuicios y prácticas discriminatorias extendidas, naturalizadas y, de tan arraigadas, invisibles, no percibidas como tales en la sociedad.

XXboys
One of the biggest misconceptions about the word transgender is that it only refers to girls or women who were assigned male at birth. Because trans women somehow end up inadvertently becoming more visible than their male counterparts, they are more often than not perceived as the only ones who make up the T part of the LGBT community. Many forget that being transgender is experienced and expressed in so many ways by a wide range of people and that in fact, the "transgender experience" is lived through as well by those who were assigned female at birth and now have a male gender identity and masculine gender expression or those who we call transboys/transmen/transmales.

Group of Teenagers Attacks Trans Woman in Seattle
One week ago,
a trans woman was attacked on the street by a group of teenagers in Seattle.
Of course there’s no evidence whatsoever that the victim is a sex worker. Apparently even a 13-year-old knows both the stereotype that all trans women are sex workers, and the idea that if someone is a sex worker, it’s okay to beat and threaten to kill her.

Beautiful Darling
The latest offering in the Andy Warhol-related documentary realm—a glimpse into the short life and fragile mind of the transsexual actress Candy Darling—remains a work in progress. Unfortunately time code, music and voice-over work won’t much improve an ultimately vague glimpse, despite the original films, photos, press clippings, letters and journal entries impressively assembled.
