Fighting Back

Cal returned from the GIC last Tuesday, and the news was all good: like me, he has been granted a second appointment in February, at which point all going well he will be approved for HRT. The clinician seemed absolutely charmed with him (only naturally), and they had a good conversation. The fact that we... Continue Reading →

GIC – First Assessment

Apologies for the delay, but things haven't stopped moving since I returned from London last Friday. As for the reason I was there at all... well, it certainly took a long time (albeit 11 months rather than the dreaded 13) and there were plenty of times I dreaded it wouldn't happen at all, or would...

"Let us be clear: there is no such thing as “sex-reassignment” surgery. A mutilated male pumped full of estrogen remains just that—a mutilated male pumped full of estrogen.

Letting the Side Down

[Previous post redacted, due to having become stupidly redundant...] Originally on this blog, I posted some questions to the deep ecology group Deep Green Resistance, just in case tags and keywords actually work and they felt like dropping by... which, unamazingly, they didn't. I have since followed the rational, nay obvious course and just taken... Continue Reading →

Though... Continue Reading →

Feel lucky, punk?

Just a quick visual post for today, as I have now received and resized the photos from my latest shoot with Jason Marsh. I love this photographer more than any I have ever worked with for various reasons... 1. He only works with vintage cameras and film - none of that boring DSLR stuff -... Continue Reading →
