When will we get our recognition asks Laxmi the famous celebrity trans - gender.

Gender Centre – bullying
Transgenders are often bullied. We are not allowed to self-define and arrange for medical treatment to bring ourselves in line with our innate personalities.
We are forced to go to gatekeepers and ‘prove’ our transgender status to the satisfaction of ‘experts’, whose presence in our lives only emphasises to third parties that we ‘need treatment’.

Eye Candy
Even among the Warhol Superstars, Candy Darling was a standout. Her spot-on embodiment of a ’40s-era Hollywood starlet — demure, mysterious, quiet — stood in contrast to the pretty-little-rich-girl routine of Edie Sedgwick, the drug-fueled silver-tongued cheek of Brigid Berlin and the Teutonic otherness of Nico. And the fact that she was a transgendered woman from Long Island only added to her mystique. Her fame spread via the Paul Morrissey films “Flesh” and “Women in Revolt,” and she was immortalized by Lou Reed in the songs “Candy Says” and “Walk on the Wild Side.” She died in 1974, from leukemia connected to unsafe hormone treatments, at the age of 29.
