Burnley transexual left ‘in limbo’ after NHS refuses to fund breast op
A Burnley transsexual says she has been left 'half man, half woman' after doctors refused her breast surgery.
Cathy Ann Daniels, 57, formerly known as Keith Stanstead Daniels, underwent a £60,000 sex change in London 18 months ago.
But the former builder, who has three children, claims her GP in Burnley will not refer her for a £5,000 breast operation on the NHS to complete her transformation.

Family environment does matter after all
A lesbian couple in Australia has lost their foster son after posting an objectionable photo of him on Facebook.
One of the women is hoping to undergo a sex-change operation, while the other is hoping to bear a child through artificial reproduction. The two dressed the six-year-old boy -- who, along with his 12-year-old sister, was placed with the couple in 2009 -- as a girl and posted the picture of him on the social networking site.
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) tells OneNewsNow that homosexual liberals claim it does not matter whether a child is raised by two women, two men, or a husband and wife. But he begs to differ.

Anti-discrimination policy for transgender students weighed
For Julian Melson, the clarity of a hard-won sobriety six years ago made two things apparent.
He needed to start over with his education. And he needed to face the fact that he was a man.
The acceptance he found of his new identity at GateWay Community College was crucial in attaining a certificate, he said. That’s why he hopes the Maricopa County Community College District formally recognizes transgendered people as a protected group.

Transgender activist Jessica Lam helps plan conference at Florida International University
Years before Chastity Bono shocked Cher with the news that she was becoming Chaz, Jesus Lam Sr. had a similar talk with his mother, Yolanda.
“I don’t want to see you wearing a dress in front of me,” Yolanda told her first-born son, now Miami transgender activist Jessica Lam.
"I said, ‘Mom, I don’t need to wear a dress in order to be a woman,’” Jessica said in an interview. “I’m more than just the sum of my body parts and what I wear.”
