A Tribute to a Trans Warrior in Afghanistan, My Dear Friend Jenn
Those of us in the LGBT community have much to celebrate this holiday season. Ted Olsen and David Boies win federal court recognition of our birthright to marry as we choose. LCR wins federal court recognition for lesbians and gays to serve openly in our military then our House and Senate pass repeal of DADT that was signed by our president.

I've been thinking today about -- and empathizing with -- the parents of young children who exhibit signs of transsexualism and ultimately demand sexual reassignment surgery. It's understandable that the parents would be in denial for quite a while, hoping it was a passing phase.
