Tremendous tackiness
In the early days of the gay and lesbian Pride parade in the early 1990s, there was much argument about drag queens. Some felt that they should not have the prominence they were given by reports on the march -- newspapers always placed pictures of the most outrageous drags on their front pages.

A word about our healthcare
Recently the World Professional Association for Transgender Health released new guidelines for transition related medical care and therapeutic assistance for transgender and gender nonconforming people at a health symposium at Emory University in Atlanta. This is version 7. Version one was written in 1979 by Dr. Harry Benjamin. One of the main changes is its title. Called the Standards Of Care For Gender Identity Disorders in the last version (February, 2001) and all previous versions (1979, 1980, 1981, 1990, and 1998), it is now called the Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People.

A Sinful Decision Made in Lawrence, Kansas
City officials have just passed the most liberal pro-homosexual bill in Kansas history, well almost. In reality, they are the second city to pass an anti-discrimination ordinance that makes individuals with gender-identity issues part of a protected class. The city of Manhattan, Kansas, recently passed a very similar ordinance on a liberal 3-2 vote in the City’s Council. Despite heavy citizen opposition, the Manhattan ordinance went into effect, and it took an election that put Tea Party conservative candidates in office for that ordinance to be repealed. Lawrence, Kansas will now go down a similar road, and reap the negative whirlwind that Manhattan, Kansas, narrowly avoided.

Desde cometer el grave error de decir que si incluyen GÉNERO en la ley, las personas transexuales estamos incluidas, hasta que estamos en pecado por querer cambiar nuestros cuerpos e ir contra la naturaleza de DIOS.
