Hi All
Hi again,

Hope everyone is having a good time at the moment, In Melbourne, Victoria Australia it is very cold for the Winter season. I had spent time in Hobart (Tasmania south of Victoria) for a week and was able to hear the great news of the Anti-discrimination laws protecting Transgendered people in Tasmania. In which it is the best in Australia and one in three in the world.

Transgendered people in Tasmania sees this as a victory on changing Transgendered from being a sexual orientation to a sexual identity.

Keeping you up to date with Australian News as it comes through.

Dear all Mtf's

I am a pre-everything, Male to Female. I have been out for about a year but can not start anything in my transition because I am not 18 and my parents will not give consent to the doctors. However, I dress full time. At the time I have silicone inserts I use for my chest, although one has a tear and I am in fear to swim with them because 1. They will float, and 2. I do not know how they will react with the chlorine. Can anybody here tell me what they did or what I can do so that I can go swimming ?

I have already on HTR therapy for 3 years. Some specialists say it is quite a long term without surgery, but now I know I am really ready for this. Love you

LBT Takeover
Well, as many of you know, this past weekend was Gay Days at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. While I couldn't go to the evnt, I did work both days and walked the park a bit before and after work, and I've gotta say, I could not be more disappointed. This was for a variety of reasons, but here's my number-one issue: rather than a park full of my "family," I saw a park full of middle aged gay men. Where were the lesbians? The bisexuals? The transpeaople? Granted, I work at Hungry Bear, home of the "bear lover" meet-up, but still. I literally saw less than 5 red-shirt-clad women the entire weekend. Those I did were in their 40s. I began to realize that, despite having one meet-up a day specifically for women and a couple for youth, these men are the people Gay Days really target. And, for a 19-year-old dyke hoping to meet others like herself, this is damned disappointing.

So I'm proposing that we stage an LBT takeover. Either at next years' Gay Days or (this is my preference, especially because I don't feel like waiting another whole year after spending the whole last year looking forward to this), on our own day. Which is not to say your average, everyday gay man can't come, but this is not targeted at them. Just like we can come to Gay Days, but it's not targeted at us. Hell, we could even give the guys a little meet-up.

So, who's with me?

Official site for Anaheim Gay Days is here.

Hello -  I am Jamison - I am an FtM living in Florida.

I know this is an MtF group.  My father was an MtF - I remember early on when I was a child him dressing up in womens clothing and looking great.

What I am trying to do is bring the FtM and the MtF communities together. 

I run a support group on Yahoo : http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ftmtampabay/  -  trying to get support for all.  Thats what my group is about. 

I attend a group every month that has transwomen and then the transmen -  for a half hour before each one ends and starts we all get together.  I find that wonderful and I think its time we all support that.

After all isn't support what we need in going through the changes.   I know I may be going through different changes.

I also know that some people are alone.  And thats what I am trying to help with.

Thanks for listneing.

Member removal
There has been a member that was on our list and I totally forgot that s/he was on the list untill their sent a message on the list.

This person has attacked my on my personal journal and I have reported it to the lj staff and blocked them, but I still find out that s/he has still attacked my via other groups that I am connected with and as being Mod of the group I feel that the group doesn't need to hear what this abusive person has got to say.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and hope you can relax in the spa room.

Trans 101 for Queer Collaborations 2004
I had sent an e-mail to a group that I am in called TMGP (Trans Melbourne Gender Project) talking about what happened when I was at QC '04 in Brisbane on the 5th July to the 9th July. I hope you like it, as it was a start of Trans awareness for Queer Students in Uni's.

E-mail when like this:
Greetings all,

Okay for those who don't know Miles (Miles-David) and I went to QC (Queer Collaborations) in Brisbane for a week, when we got there (Sunday Morning) we were able to get a look at the adgenda of what workshops were available, a surprise to Miles and I that there was not Trans content except for a lunch on Wendesday with the Trans Association of Qld.

So on Monday Night Miles and I did some planning about doing Trans 101. As we saw nothing on the program of trans issues and we didn't want to complain about it so we just went and said we are going to organise this workshop do this.

So Monday Night Miles and I got our thinking heads together and started planning out this 1hr session, got in contact with another trans-person named Amanda who lives in Cairns So it was a good start for us three.

The content of the session as follows:
1. Termology - Transgender, Transsexual, Transvestite (Cross-dressers), Drag Kings/Queers, Transitioning, Pre-Op, Post-Op, Non-Op and Intersex (limited to what we know about Intersex).

2. Mental Illness - Referring to Medical society still say that G.D/G.I.D. is still a mental illness

3. Usual age awareness of being Trans

4. Suicide rates and trans ratio in the world - Suicide Rate over 50% Trans ratio is between 1:2,500 to 1:5,000

5. Surgery Procedures - Male to Female and Female to Male.
MtF - Implants
- Nip and Tuck
- Voice
- Adams apple
- Jawline
- Laser/Electrolysis

FtM - Phalloplasty
- Metoidioplasty
- Full Chest Surgery
- plua ther was others that Miles had spoken about.

6. Hormones for both MtF' and FtM's, these include tablets, injections, implants, creams and patches.

7. Protocol:
- Never ask about their old name
- If you do know their old name don't use it
- Surgical status
- Pronuons - Listen to what that person calls themselves don't guess.

8. Issues:
- Discrimination in the 1980's
- Lesigestlation recently passed in Vic gov't on Birth Certificates inline with other States and Territories provided you've had SRS/GRS or been given approval but other factors are holding that person down.
- Poverty issues (cost of surgery in each state varies)
- Sex Work
- Reactions in society
- Hate Crimes

9. Gender Clinics:
- Sydney Gender Clinic
- Monash Gender Dysphoria Clinic
- Brisbane Gender Clinic (Roma St.)
- Most resources are on the eastern coast of Australia

10. Open forum for questiuons and discussions.

This lasted for an hour and for a workshop that was not on the program and getting over 30 people to listen and ask questions was really good. Plus Miles and I have made a motion on the Friday session that the next QC (which is held in Perth) that there will be a longer session for Tans-issues. Both Miles and I will be going and we are saving money now as we speak.

All questions were very positive and everyone who was at the Trans 101 or not were still asking questions on Wednesday and even on the way home on the XPT train from Casino to Melbourne.

So if you are studing any subjests next year in Uni, start saving money to come to Perth QC'05 it is going to be fun and it's time we help our friends in other states too.

A great workshop everyone said to Miles, Amanda and I. So we where happy but there was a few things we were hoping to add but time got away from us all.

Relaxing in the beauty parlor
What a great place. We can all come together share ourselves. I started wearing my sister's clothes as a small child, and I've never stopped. Now I dress as often as I can. Since I live in a small town, I only go out as Teresa during Burning Man and for Halloween. So I guess I'm out of the closet but not out of the house. I love all facets of womens attire and accessories. Last year I learned to properly use make-up and I got my first set of falsies (I'm now a 36B) I have lots of bra's, panties, and lounge/sleepware, but not too many clothes. I have only 2 pairs of shoes and 1 purse. In the future my wardrobe will allow me to go out in public and hopefully pass. I will try to post some pic's but I'm not sure how to. All my pics are too big and I don't know how to adjust them. If anybody has any helpful hint's please let me know (I have a powerbook G4). Then you'll be able to see the real me. Anyway it's really nice to have someplace to feel comfortable, thanks for the space.
