Artists are of a rare breed. Although their numbers are far more greater than that of any nationality, each member of this prestigious clan is an entity of their own. Through my travels I have been privileged to meet many of its members and with each encounter I am taken aback. The thing about artists is that they not only march to a different beat but they create the drum that drives their existence. My favorite sect is The Writers. These people possess a gift that many aspire to have. The gift to tell a story that can inspire and create life.

A very special book crossed my desk recently; one that I have shared with you, Black Girl LoveBlack Girl Love written by Anondra “Kat” Williams. At this very moment as I write I am taken back to the stories Kat shared in this collection of work. Her book was filled with stories that took on personalities of their own. There was the lover, the stalker, the cancer patient, the closeted lesbian, the other woman, and many more. It fascinated me, the gift of this writer to create so many different stories all spewing from the mind of one. Well my loyal readers you know me and of course I had to get an interview with her.

Kat is the producer of Sipping on InkSipping on Ink, an internet based radio show on Blog Talk Radio. SOI has been on air for many years and every Wednesday night she introduces her audiences to a different artist that has dedicated their gift of expression to give a voice to the many faces that dawn our earth and rainbow. I smiled when I asked her how she started the show and she responded that it began with a story. This is ironic because she does not consider herself a writer but a scribbler.

http://www.genderblind.org/oldsite/gblogo.jpgWhile researching today, I found a campaign working toward creating an equal environment for all genders at colleges and universities, The National Student Genderblind Campaign (NSGC). According to their mission statement, they question the way society has dictated that women should room with women and men with men. Why can’t students live with whomever they are at ease?

Exploring Gender: The Interview

job interviewI had a job interview today, the first one in about a year. And though I now go by Cael on a day to day basis, I have still not changed my name legally, so I still must legally apply as Mary. In the course of past interviews, it has always been difficult to try to figure out how to dress as my life has progressed. At first, it was easy—though uncomfortable—to put on some tight pin stripe pants and a spaghetti-string tank top under an equally tight button up shirt. Then as I grew more comfortable with myself, I would trade the tight pants for some men’s slacks instead. Little by little, my style changed to reflect my male identity, and I no longer own any women’s clothes.

graduate

I am about to graduate from a women’s college in Virginia. I have always loved it here: the people, the community. Generally, I feel safe. I feel secure. I know I can walk around campus holding hands with my girlfriend and no one will care. But trans issues at a women’s college are complicated. Again, I know I am safe, but there are constraints to that safety.

According to transgenderlaw.org, almost 400 colleges and universities have protections for genderqueer students. Some states are more progressive than others. It’s always a good idea to look up the policy at any college or university you are considering.

The Dreaded Ex

 threebirds

Lesbian relationships can be fraught with all kinds of angst.  Some of it is unearned and a lot of it is self-induced. Being friends with exes. How many of you just had your blood boil at the very thought of that?  When someone is good friends with an ex, where there is that unbreakable bond, then that should be respected. I always wonder about the self-esteem of people who worry about their partner being friends with an ex. If the ex is an unhealthy person and causes your partner grief and sorrow then by all means step in with some advice.  Advice being the key word.
