Delia (formerly David): 'I was trapped in the wrong body'
Public acceptance of transsexuals has never been greater. But for some the issue remains fraught with shame.

But a look of puzzlement swiftly crosses the faces of the interested, as they realise that this willowy, elegant woman is not quite what she seems.

'Legalize Trans' campaign takes on American Apparel, gender equality issues
"Legalize Gay. Repeal Prop 8." We've all seen it. American Apparel has made sure of that. Their brightly-colored T-shirts emblazoned with an amazingly simple yet strongly impactful slogan have been passed out to thousands at LGBT Pride festivals and other events the nation over. The slogan has even made its way into print on tank tops, string tops and underwear (panties and thongs included).
Now, in response to a perceived lack of full inclusion, a transgender activist who's worked on several LGBT equality projects is taking matters into his own hands and creating the "Legalize Trans" campaign.
