I thought I’d share this great video about gender transformation and art. It is well worth the watch and features visual artist, Heather Cassils (go to her site to see more about her work, Cuts: A Traditional Sculpture 2011) and Zackary Drucker, one of the photographers, with Amos Mac, for the new magazine Translady Fanzine which I am a huge fan of!
I am excited to say that Hot Trans Guys had one of its biggest days on March 1st with over 1,000 hits! We have 8 new Hot Trans Guys coming up in the next few weeks including fathers, furparents, genderqueer guys, pre and post op guys, a guy living with PHACES Syndrome, artists and more!
Lastly, wanted to share some of my new articles on Huff Po. One is about LGBT teen suicide (tying into the last episode of Glee) and the other is about my handlebar moustache, two issues I am very concerned about personally. Suicide is a big issue for our community. There is help available!

I have struggled with my self-esteem and awhile back, pre-medical transition, one of my friends encouraged me to put a note on my bathroom mirror that said, “I am a beautiful princess” Of course the choice of words was a bit off, however the essence was spot on. The note I put on my mirror helped me in so many ways!!
You are handsome!
