I recently wrote an article for the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News:
“We are nearly into the Christmas Season, and me being filled with Christmas Cheer, I have decided to show Scrooge “how it’s done” and reach out to those in need (well, a few of you, anyway).
“This is an offer which will not result in you receiving any additional presents (that’s Santa’s job, not mine), but if you are selected as one of the beneficiaries of my Christmas generosity, you will be grateful, nonetheless.
“I am a transgender (“TG”) woman, and a few years ago when I began my transition, I learned an amazing fact. Which is: That it sometimes happens (and by “sometimes,” I mean “much, much more often than it ought to”) that when a TG man or woman first “comes out” and announces to his or her family that, “Hey, I’m TG” a most unusual reaction can occur.”
