don't let the T be silent

i've added peterson's blog to my published list, over there on the right hand side, but he wanted this particular story to get a push. so consider this me circling it with a highlighter pen and passing it over. please pass it on.

through his art and activism, peterson has been focussing increasingly on the rights and stories of transgender people over the past year, and this story is troubling. on several levels.

no time to say more right now as my step-brother is getting married in a couple of hours and there's champagne needing drunk...



  1. Anonymous7:08 pm

    Thanks for getting the word out about the news story!

    Hope you don't too drunk to enjoy the festivities :-p

  2. i did enjoy the festivities. civil ceremony, drinks in a boutique hotel and then dinner at a very nice restaurant, which turned into a singing session. but no, despite my step brothers' best efforts, i managed not to get *too* drunk . :-p

    we get a slight reprieve tomorrow and then it all kicks off again with a dinner and dancing for 150 people on saturday evening. i make no promises as to how that's gonna turn out. i suspect today was a training lap.
