El esperado proyecto de ley integral de transexualidad llegará como muy tarde al Parlamento andaluz el próximo 15 de diciembre tras el acuerdo alcanzado entre colectivos trans, Junta de Andalucía y representantes de PSOE e IULV-CA.

The person he wants to be
Samson Learn can’t tuck into his tofu scramble without the ketchup, which, in the midst of a busy Sunday brunch, our server forgot. The stocky blond photographer, who is admittedly a little hungover, looks longingly at the red upside-down bottle sitting just out of reach behind the counter of the Good Food Emporium. The girl behind the counter is concentrating on something tasty at the bottom of a hotpot. His lips tighten. Eager to continue our conversation and sitting closer to the counter, I ask the awkward question, taking her away from the hotpot’s contents to retrieve Sam’s ketchup.
