An unholy row and a handbagging
A transsexual Nigerian who is now a woman was worshipping at a Christ Embassy service in the Madrid district of Vallecas on August 8. That much is undisputed, but there are two versions of what happened next. The woman claims she was violently attacked by the pastor during the Sunday service in the presence of churchgoers.
Her clothing was torn and ripped away as she was physically assaulted and insulted for her sexual orientation while others looked on without intervening or defending her. The police were called and she was taken to hospital where she received attention for her injuries, following which she reported the confrontation.

Britain's first transsexual April Ashley has led a jet-setting life crammed with glamour, excitement and legions of besotted men, most of them famous.
April Ashley, Britain's first transsexual, is, at 75, a woman confident of her own stature. When she arrives at the restaurant where we are to have lunch, she strikes a momentary pose in the doorway, the hems of her white slacks a little damp from the sudden summer rain outside, but her blue bouffant hair, her mascara'ed eyelashes, immaculate.

‘The same-sex marriage fight is just as much a transgender fight as it is (an LGB) fight’
Phyllis Randolph Frye, the well-known transgender attorney from Houston whose clients include trans widow Nikki Araguz, sent out an e-mail Sunday slamming national gay-rights groups for ignoring the issue of “‘tranny’ same-sex marriage” in Texas.
Referencing an op-ed that appeared in Sunday’s Houston Chronicle about the Araguz case, Frye notes that in the six weeks since the story broke, few people have gotten behind her client’s legal fight. Nikki Araguz is seeking to receive death benefits for her husband, Thomas Araguz III, a Wharton firefighter who was killed in the line of duty early last month. But Thomas Araguz’s family has sued to deny Nikki Araguz those benefits, arguing that their marriage was void because she was born a man, since Texas’ prohibits same-sex marriage.
