Acehnese Gays Face a Climate of Fear and Abuse
It doesn’t take much to notice “Echa,” a transvestite who lives in Banda Aceh. With his masculine figure and flamboyant make-up, he instantly draws attention.
And so does the fact that he is wearing a short dress with a plunging neckline to one of the city’s popular coffee houses instead of a headscarf and other conservative Muslim attire. Of course, Echa is a man so he poses a dilemma for the morality police.

Transgender woman can file refugee claim
A transgendered Irish woman living in Nova Scotia has been deemed eligible to apply for refugee status, her lawyer says.
Tanya Bloomfield is originally from Ireland and has been in Canada since 2006. She said being transgendered will make her a target for hate if she is sent back to live in Europe.
Immigration officials on Thursday gave Bloomfield 28 days to file a 16-page, 35-question document to claim refugee status, said Lee Cohen, Bloomfield's lawyer.

Radio review: Case Study
There was a big "eek" moment at the start of Case Study (Radio 4). We heard from the mother of the programme's subject – David Reimer, born a boy but raised as a girl – about the medical catastrophe that led to a disastrous experiment of gender reassignment.
She remembered the call from the hospital where her twin baby sons were due to be circumcised. The first procedure had been a disaster. "The penis had been burned off," she said. Eek. Her speech was slow, slurred almost, and sounded haunted by what she had endured, allowed, in the years that followed. And little wonder: one twin, who continued as a boy, died of a drugs overdose, and Reimer (pictured) killed himself in 2004.

What Happened to Christine Daniels' Blog?
An enduring mystery in the Mike Penner/Christine Daniels story is why the L.A. Times no longer has any trace of "Woman in Progress," Daniels' groundbreaking blog. It was removed from the newspaper's Web site after Mike Penner returned to the paper in 2008, and has since disappeared from the Times' internal archive, putting the newspaper in an awkward position of trying to explain what happened to a piece of history.
