Trans woman's employment tribunal to begin next month
Rachel Millington was fired from her job last year after she revealed to bosses that she was starting the process of gender re-assignment. The case, which is coming before a Nottingham employment tribunal in September, may not necessarily create any startling legal precedents – but its reporting demonstrates just how far trans rights have come in the media over the last few years.

Get Real! We Did Everything We Could to Make Things Go Just Right, But it Didn't
My girlfriend and I are both non-op transsexuals; (i.e., she's MtF, I'm FtM, and we haven't had "the surgery" and don't intend to.) On a visit with her a little while ago, she and I were sitting in her car and talking about our feelings regarding sex. When our relationship started over a year ago she asked me to wait, which I was fine with, but didn't know she had been open to what we considered "in between" kind of stuff like oral (she doesn't want to go "all the way" because she was raped a little while before I met her and she feels like penetrating me is putting me in her position--it isn't, but I'm not going to pressure her), and while we had been discussing it we realized we were both in the mood and I asked her if she wanted to find some place more private and explore, and she said "only if you want to." I did.

Transexuales mexicanas: “Somos indocumentadas en nuestro propio país'
Las mujeres transexuales tienen un reto mayúsculo: obtener la igualdad en una sociedad en constante transformación, con muchos avances en lo legal, pero pocos sobre aceptación pública.
Diana Barrios, mujer transexual, creó la Fundación Transformarte, ubicada en la ciudad de México, para auxiliar a las mujeres transexuales que viven en la capital, o que llegan de estados, rechazados por sus familias por su género.
