Another hundred trans-related blogs

So, in response to “popular demand” (such as it is), here is the next hundred or so trans-related blogs from the list I made when I first tried to gauge just what was going on in the blogosphere and beyond. (You can find more about my rationale and the first 100 here.)

As with my first list, the order really doesn’t mean much, and there are still people whose blogs I like who are further down my list so didn’t get shown here. It’s quite possible there are errors and duplication in the list. If you spot something wrong, feel free to let me know in the comments.

  • Mental Boonies — “Sophie, Hampton Roads, Virginia, United States. A late blooming woman, trying to unzip this shell of a male persona. It no longer fits and it is time to come out of my chrysalis.”
  • Cheerful Megalomaniac — “I was assigned female at birth, but I had my doubts about the validity of this assessment from a fairly early age. In September of 2007 I found out I could transition to male, and after several months contemplation I decided that a lifetime of testosterone shots would totally be worth it if I could have a beard of my very own. Somewhat more recently I discovered postmodernism… I deconstructed my own gender until I landed in such a state of confusion that I am no longer able to tell you what gender I am. I identify as genderqueer, and like to be referred to with male pronouns.”
  • From Mars to Venus — “This is as much for my own benefit as for other people taking the same journey as I am, see title.”, “I went to London on Monday to see Dr. Curtis of TransHealth about what options I have with regard to going full time and transitioning.”

  • Bad Moon Rising — “I identify as neutrois male and tend to swing between those extremes. For the record, I am trans. Sometimes I feel more male, other days I feel more neutrois.

In short, this a brutally honest, uncensored diary of my experiences dealing with being transsexual. My name is Sage, and I’m a pre-op (pre-operative) MtF (male to female) transsexual. I’m from a tiny town in the middle of nowhere Virginia. I have many interests as you can tell.

More specifically, I ask people to write about their feelings around gender and their own gender identity or presentation on a piece of plastic, and then I photograph them with it. Why are you doing this?  Gender DiverCity is a photo project through which I am attempting to show the diversity of gender presentation and identity among humans, and their own words about that gender presentation or identity. I have noticed that sometimes people see us through our words, sometimes people see us despite our words, sometimes our words are ignored, and sometimes our words change how others perceive us. For this reason, I ask participants to write some of their own words down on plastic which is included in the photo shoot.”
  • (unlinked by request) — “I am a post-op transsexual woman of a few years. I am happy with my life and try to enjoy it as much as possible. I have friends and family just like anyone else and live quite an ordinary life.

That I did in 2002.” [Edit: The person who had this blog asked me not to link to it from this list. Hopefully she won't mind my keeping the description.]
  • Haunted Timber — “I am queer in another sense of the word: I am a trans woman. I did not grow up as a girl. I was labeled as a boy at birth and I spent my childhood trying to believe that I was a boy. At some point during my childhood, the whole boy thing became a bit cumbersome. So, when I hit 17, I decided that I would never identify as a man. I did, in fact, start to think of myself as a woman… in spite of hauling around a rather ill-fitting male body. Being a woman while inhabiting a male body gets to be pretty tiring, so I started my physical transition to female when I was 24. That was in 1993. A few years passed, and here we are. Yay!”

  • A Life about Transition | — “It is interesting to explore this side of myself and realize that perhaps I’ve been denying what I was truly desiring. For all my life I’ve always thought that women should be treated with respect and put on pedestials. Oddly enough, I didn’t view this for myself. Growing up as a tomboy, I never considered myself as a “woman” so to speak — at least not in the traditional sense.”

NCTE was founded in 2003 by transgender activists who saw the urgent need for a consistent voice in Washington DC for transgender people. ”
  • Kelly’s So Called Life — “Finally admitting to myself that I was trans was a big deal, coming out to my family and friends was even bigger and just as scary. [...] While it didn’t quite turn out like I had hoped, [FFS] was still a very big step in my transition from Greg to Kelly. Plus, it really, really, really hurt. What I Hope To Achieve During The Next Decade: [...] Getting the right body parts- I live my life as female in every possible way but I can’t help but feel incomplete having what I do between my legs. Be gone already. It would be nice to meet someone who isn’t totally repulsed by who I am or what I look like. Girl or boy, doesn’t matter.”
  • THE D LINE — “A bridge to undrstanding transgender and gender variant people of the world. genevieve; Brooklyn, New York, United States. There are many facets to my life.

  • Lesbian Dad — “les•bi•an dad: n, neologism 1. a. A lesbian or genderqueer parent who feels that traditionally female titles (i.e., “mother”) don’t quite fit, and who is willing to appropriate and redefine existing male ones (i.e., “father”): She was a tomboy when she was a kid, so it’s not surprising she’s a lesbian dad as a parent. b. Often a non-biological parent in a lesbian family, whose role relative to the child in many ways resembles that of fathers.”

  • Callan — “The Loneliness of a Long-Lost Tranny”
  • Stop Transphobia — “This site has been developed to aid the fight against transphobia in the UK.  The only blog I could find dedicated to tackling transphobia had a strong US bias: stories relating to the UK were dropping through the cracks.  During 2008 the need for a UK focused blog has become even more apparent.  Over the summer, the Stop Transphobia At Pride campaign was formed in response to stewards at London Pride preventing trans people from using toilets appropriate to their gender.  Later in 2008, many trans people questioned whether it was appropriate for Stonewall to nominate Julie Bindell as Journalist of the Year given the nature of some of her comments on transpeople over the years.”
  • The Cracked Crystal Ball II — “Collected ramblings of a deranged mind. Much of what’s in this blog will be political, speculative and generally annoying.

Pretty much anything will be fair game, and little will be held sacred.” (Has several interesting essays on relevant gender topics.)

  • Becky Allison — “I’m Becky Allison, and I’ve published the “drbecky.com” website, in one form or another, since 1996.  My intention was, and is, to provide support and information for a very special group of people.  People Like Me, you might say.”
  • Southern Crossdressing — “Cassidy Brynn.   Southern Mid-Atlantic, United States.  All things arts. All things cultural. All things transgendered. Women’s fashion, costume jewelry, fun. Interested in meeting t-girls from the area for tea and conversation, if possible. Hello? Is there anyone out there? Lol Not interested in meeting for adult pleasures, mind you, I’m taken. Non T interests include guitar, music, painting, arts, family, cooking, film, and outdoor activities (what can I say, I like running around barefoot).”, “One thing I’ve noticed is my language for describing how I view myself has evolved. Years ago I was just a crossdresser, a weekend drag queen. Now I’m trans, or even transsexual.”
  • Ping Your Spaceman — “A student, a geek, an activist, a born-and-raised Southerner, a nonsectarian Zen Buddhist, a big-city person by compulsion, identified as genderqueer with plans to transition and a femme masculine presentation. I am easily amused and given to creating a great matrix of thoughts to connect all of my varied interests. Bad movies, bad fiction, badly written erotica, sequential art, and tokusatsu shows are my amusements.”
  • TYFA – Serving Transgender youth and their families — “TYFA empowers children and families by partnering with educators, service providers and communities, to develop supportive environments in which gender may be expressed and respected. We envision a society free of suicide and violence in which ALL children are respected and celebrated. ”
  • Just Another View — “[This blog] actually started out of the idea to tell weird ideas and stories with no particular value to anyone but the longer this blog exists the more I turned towards LGBT-topics and gender studies. However, I’m not a typical transsexual activist – I’m just too much of a cynic for that. Still it is a subject I discuss a lot for it happens to be part of my everyday life – at least I guess so because right now I’m wearing a shirt with a transgender logo. But still I sometimes end up with some stories from my everyday life or weird theories about life in general for even the whole trans-stuff can get boring from time to time. So, if you want to read just another boring blog feel free – I won’t keep you away. And if you want to talk to me just ask – I’ll answer.”

  • Gorgon Queen — “But I’ve noticed recently that there is a critical mass forming of really incisive, deeply thoughtful trans thinkers who are finally beginning to push back against the tide of stupidity that forever threatens to drown us – people with far more vision than self-regard who show evidence of thinking clearly… a precious and rare commodity in the trans ’sphere, I find.”

  • xoros — “So, I’m a trans woman, an architect and virtual world environment designer, feminist, lesbian, romantic, slightly geeky and a list maker. I love learning, I aspire to have a sense of wonder about the universe and life. Reading is an important part of my being, whether fiction or non fiction I can devour a book, although I have a particular love of fantasy and science fiction – as well as trashy detective novels.

  • Today You Are You – My Transgender Child & My Destiny — “When my 4 year old told me he was a girl inside, I said “Be who you are.” With our love and support she socially transitioned a couple years later and is living authentically for the first time. Some days I feel like I am shouting from the rooftops, calling out for help into the night. At times the role of parent and advocate is a lonely one, but I cling to the fact that we are not alone.

I will be forever grateful for all of your love, support and collaboration. ”

  • The Unbridled Joy of Flight — “This blog is where I will describe my journey to physical womanhood.  I had wanted to start this much earlier, but never took the time given other priorities.  As such, for now it will start in the middle- my anatomical completion starting with pre-op prep beginning on Sept 30 and continuing for a few months past my surgical date on oct 7.  Over time, I will fill in the beginning, and then those interested in traveling the journey with me to the end will be able to do so.  My goal is to keep my “trans issues” here and off other venues, so that folks who are interested can follow along and those who just want to be my friend without the “gory details” can have that option.”
  • GenderEvolve – Transgender Transformation — “We are transgender and genetic women from all walks of life, together on a mission to bring positive change to the way transgenderism is viewed by society. We strive to reflect positively on ourselves, our sisters, and transgender community at large”
  • flooring and whoring — “Doing sex work as a genderqueer IDed, female-assigned-at-birth person is a bit of a mindfuck, in addtion to the work beng a mindfuck in and of itself. I’ve met a handful of other genderqueer/vagina possessng people but not talked about it much, and have an easier time just not even tryng to assign theories. I don’t feel particularly gendered most of the time, and go through occasional phases of gender dysphoria in whch it feels like i’d like nothing more than to transition hormonally. I often talk myself out of this w1th the rationalization that I wouldn’t be able to work anymore [...].”
  • Being Julia — “Or to put it another way, I’m Julia . . . sometimes. I’m a T-Girl – a fella who loves to wear dresses . . . and skirts . . . and stockings . . . and heels . . . and . . . . . . . .

I’m a father and a writer and a reader and a musician and a football fan. I’m a lover, not a fighter (or a dancer). I’m a 60s child. I hope I never grow up. I’m a man in touch with his feminine side, but I’m not a man trapped in a woman’s body. I was born male and I’ll die male . . . I just make the odd excursion as Lady Julia.”
  • Women Born Transsexual — “Women Born Transsexual or WBT is for people who recognize transsexualism, sometimes called HBS or Harry Benjamin Syndrome as an innate condition rather than a gender identity disorder. We view transsexualism as a medical condition we were treated for rather than as an identity.  We tend to not consider ourselves transgender although many of us are quite willing to work with transgender people in achieving common goals.  We are not willing to allow our unique history and life experiences to be erased or swallowed up by the transgender paradigm. Many but not all of us do not see ourselves as being part of transgender.  This is neither elitist nor hostile and a great deal of misunderstanding could be alleviated by simply saying transsexual and transgender when describing people who are now erased when transgender is used as  a universal and collective descriptive noun.”

I was born a guy, but not letting that put me off, I march on into my life with high expectations. I hope for changes in the future that will certainly make my life more enjoyable, but I know that I can’t put it all on hold until I have become the person I feel inside. I am trying my best to find myself a good job right now, but it is difficult. Anyway, you can read all this and more in my blog, so catch you later!”
  • feminism + fandom = attitude problem — “as a GQ person, I’m tempted to throw up my hands, say ‘fuck it all’, and go start a commune. [...] I guess I’m just angry. I’m v. angry at the fuckups on the feminist side, but I’m also angry at certain prescriptivism on the trans* side.”
  • Gender and Life’s Paths — “ Here I offer some news, information, resources, opinions and POVs to hopefully help you learn more about gender expression and life situations. There are a variety of paths individuals discover that may contribute to positive life changes.”

I’m also the founder and instructor of Sex Workers’ Writing Workshop.

I like glitter, the colors fuchsia & hot pink, and leopard print. ”
  • Transgender Cartoon Gallery — “I am an artist-in-business here, at Revolutionize Your Gender and Homofactus Press. You can also follow me at my personal blog, Reconno(trans)Man.”
  • GenderLines — “GenderLines is a collection of personal writings, opinions and observations around gender-variance, or transsexuality, or transgenderism if you will, mixed in with more technical investigations into what causes people to be gender variant, how widely they occur, the processes one follows to transition, etc. Genderlines will also touch on the topics of intersex, same-sex attraction and other issues on occasion, as I feel there are quite convincing arguments to show that they are all closely related. I am transsexual myself, currently transitioning from male to female, and in many ways this is my attempt to understand myself. The “why” of things has always been important to me, and I tend to spend an inordinate amount of time reading about life instead of living it. Oh well, at least my digging has given me a better idea of why I was born this way, of how it has shaped my life and affected that of people close to me, and in sharing what I’ve learned, I hope you will derive some of that same benefit.”
  • Kellie’s Views — “Kellie’s random thoughts and comments about being transgendered, living in hell, transitioning, dealing with ignorance, family issues, financial issues, doctors, and etc. I am an artist, a dreamer, a lover, a computer geek, and I am a male to female trans-women. I have only recently been able to say that. I am happily married with one adorable child. (Please don’t try and hook up with me, I’m not interested in chasers or “fun”.) I have lived in denial and shame for most of my life but not any more. I am now at the point that I can feel some worth for myself. I am now looking forward to my journey of becoming the person I was born to be.”
  • Abi Christopher — “The life of a woman from Milton Keynes. My name is Abi Christopher I am a 33 year old and I live in Milton Keynes. What is a transsexual person? A transsexual is a person who’s brain gender is not matched with their body gender. So I was born with male anatomy but my brains sex is that of a woman’s.”
  • The Marshmallowfication Blog — (No about text for me to copy and paste; on the trans spectrum the author is a trans woman, who has transitioned and is contemplating surgery. Plus lots of other life things. Video blogs too.)
  • Androgyne Online — Support/info site for Androgynes. “Androgyne (pronounced AN-dra-jine) is the term used to describe persons who are androgynous. Androgyny, first and foremost, is a state of mind, not just an attitude or fashion statement. The notion that only androgynous-looking people can be or are androgynous is a misconception. Androgynes can be said to have the gender identity of both a man and a woman — or neither. Some identify with both traditional genders, while others see their identity as more of a synthesis and consider themselves to be agendered, as in “other” or “none of the above.” Some androgynes go as far as to call themselves “gender outlaw” (a term popularized by Kate Bornstein).”
  • That’s What Ze Said — “This blog will focus on what I know best – Jewish genderqueer. It’s what I live, it’s what I love. Hopefully it will be informative but I’ve decided to focus more on my internal discussions than 101.”

It’s been an up and down journey so far but I am much better for being true to myself …”, “One of the hardest things in transitioning in middle age is the direction we have to take. We set our goals to right ourselves, our bodies, our minds and our souls so that we can live in peace.”
  • trans and flow — “Sass Rogando Sasot. A transpinay activist and an advocate for the human rights of transgender people. An art project in progress. A leaping gazelle in the savanna of thought. A red cloud at sundown. An animated nomadic stardust who paints poems and occasional prose. An individual who hopes to connect with those who are still in touch with the magical. Every now and then she steals moments with her camera. This blog is a collection of her prose.”

  • Just Don’t Mention Indy — “May contain: ranting, raving, adolescent poetry (in moderation) and links to much better blogs. Oh yes – I study archaeology. It’s hard. This will be updated IN THE HOLIDAYS, because I’m currently crafting a life.” (trans man)

  • …a reconciliation…finding .me. — “A forty-one year old transsexual woman gradually coming to terms with .her.self. During the journey of reconciliation I thought it might be a good idea to express myself in a somewhat public way in order to test my ideas and thoughts with others. I hope to learn from the comments that I receive and perhaps avoid the mistakes and dead-ends that others, who have already been down this road, have experienced.”

  • Living Transgender In American Society Today — “Eva-Genevieve! Scarborough; West Covina, California, United States. I am 54 years old at the time I edit this. I started life as a boy but I am a transitioned female now and quite happy. I love life now rather than loathing it. My career in electronics R&D died in the crashing of the Twin Towers and my old pseudo-man life ended in the wreckage of that career and a failed 14-year marriage. I am building a new and much more appropriate and fulfilling life now. Everywhere I go I seem to be able to make friends easily too, just by being open about who I am. July 24th 2006 began my full-time life as Eva-Genevieve Scarborough and I am so joyful that I am free and I am God’s girl now. Sounds, and is unusual but that and my love for Jesus Christ are at the heart of who I am.”
  • Smash the Cisarchy! — “Hello, my name is Ellie and I’m transgendered. This is my background: I was born in Taiwan to a Taiwanese mother and an American father.  In spite of this I look pretty white and the space I occupy in the world is adjusted accordingly.  My parents are hardly rich but I’ve never wanted for food or basic necessities.  They fostered a love for learning that continues to this day. These are a few of my labels: transgendered, lesbian, Asian-American, radical transfeminist, pacifist, atheist, Taiwanese-born, United States citizen, voter, pro-choice, pro-gay rights, pro-intersex rights, anti-circumcision, anti-FGM, anti-IGM, and so on and so forth.”

[From the latter blog: I got confirmation of Gender Disphoria or Gender Identity Disorder from Dr Curtis at Transhealth on Friday, so on the Monday back at work I started the process of coming out at work.]
  • Stufftransmenlike — “First things first: while entries on this blog may seem unfair or mean spirited, they are meant as neither. I have been in and around “trans male space” for about seven years, and certain themes and problematic threads have made themselves apparent in their repetition.  Updates will be sporadic.   Currently, I am especially interested in the ways some trans men directly or indirectly harm trans women and thus will explore that thoroughly (or at least I hope I will!) in this blog.”
  • Being a teenage crossdresser — “Wearing a skirt has never been so difficult…”, “Hello, my name is Alice. I am an 18 year old student from England. I had gender dysphoria. This means i have a male body, but my mind is not sure which gender it should be. This is an important concept to grasp because the rest of my blog won’t make much sense unless you understand. I am not a transsexual, i don’t want to fully be a woman, yet. I am just confused about my gender. Ideally i would be androgynous, but society doesn’t allow for that at the moment. Because i class myself as more woman than man, i crossdress to a female mode. This suits me well and i enjoy it. I am out to all my friends and family and live about 50% of the time as a girl.”

I’ve been going out as Karol since about 2000, so I’m far from a newbie. And although I still enjoy catching up with my friends on the trannie scene, these days I tend to go to mainstream or fetish venues both in London and much further afield”
  • tspx newsblog: no, you shut up. — “This is a trans news blog, which is a pretty straightforward concept, right? Our perspective is: feminist. punk. do-it-yer-fuckinself. We are critical of a media neck-deep in transphobia, and invested in calling out patriarchal, sexist, racist, and otherwise oppressive perspectives on trans stuff, when trans stuff is in the news.”
  • Confessions of an Autogynephiliac — “I am Jack Molay and I am a man dreaming about having a female body. This is a phenomenon so strange, that it is rarely talked about.

  • Her Royal Whoreness — “I might have spoken about some of the similarities and connections between sex worker and trans experiences in this blog before. As someone partnered to a wonderful transman, he will often get clueless and offensive questions such as ‘so, what is in your pants, then?’ Whereas I’ll get the ‘so how old were you when you first started working/ had first sexual experience?’ or ‘do you use drugs or were you sexually abused?’ from random strangers.”
  • (trans)prose — “a body of work in progress”, “I’m maintaining a transition website, keeping it as informative and detailed as I can stand.   It will be constantly changing as I go through old journal entries and photos and add them in. Most of my transition page is about my medical transition: top surgery and testosterone.   I’m trying to include some entries about my social transition, and about the way my views about gender and bodies have changed.   A lot of those older entries are embarrassing, but I feel it’s important to include them here, at least for now. I’m also keeping a small blog about trans/genderqueer community politics, especially as they intersect with my experiences.”
  • Roanne’s Hug Central — “Hi there. I am a preop transsexual woman who has come out online only. I’m not ready to meet people in person but relish the opportunity to make online relationships and exchange ideas and support other girls like myself.

  • Z and the Universe — “One transgendered person’s view of her world. Such as it is. Zelda Rose, Dallas, TX, United States. I used to live in New Orleans, now I live in Dallas. Not a bad place, but there’s no river or seafood… I’m complicated, but not a bad person. Well, most of the time. ”
  • Common Teri’s Commentary — “The most unique thing about me is probably that I’m a person of male history who lives as a woman. I live with my wife and two kids near Yosemite National Park. My main interests are in making music and creating art. I am still looking for answers to difficult questions. If you think you have some answers I hope you’ll share them. I’ll be touching on topics that I find uncomfortable and may make you uncomfortable too. Some topics you may not like and may possibly anger you though that is not my intention. I hope to open a dialog here that addresses transgender concerns and a mutual respect for the different needs of those under this transgender umbrella.”
  • RadioFree Transburgh — “ I’m a Transwoman living in Pittsburgh. Podcasts and blog posts will encompass trans issues as well as anything else I find interesting.” (last post 2007)
  • Luis Droppings — “The personal journal and public scrapbook of a testosterone-fuelled TV fetishist skank and multi-media “method artist”…”, “Luis Drayton; London, United Kingdom. I’m a 33 year old multi-media artist; and if you haven’t already guessed, I’m transgendered.
  • My Halo — Home of “The Radical Trannies” (?).
  • Transgender Emergency Fund — “The Transgender Emergency Fund (TEF) was created to provide critical assistance to low-income transgender people. Through the fund’s intervention, transpeople have been able to avoid homelessness, maintain access to health care, and live with greater dignity and stability.”

      Well, I don’t have a time machine. This post was from January last year. And frankly, a lot of the blogs that actually interest me weren’t in the top two hundred, since I was doing a version of Google’s algorithm. Basically, you were in the top two hundred if a lot of people linked to you, but linkage doesn’t necessarily equate to quality.

        OMG, you’re right! Missed that completely. It had come up on my RSS feed (WordPress does that for posts that have been changed) and I saw January. That’ll teach me to look more closely. :D

  2. [...] is no exception, and their presence on the internet is felt strongly. There are hundreds and hundreds of Trans blogs, queer blogs, gay blogs, lesbian blogs and bisexual blogs. These blogs vary from [...]
