When was the T added to LGBT? A quick history

Disinformation about queer rights history is rife and often spread by people pushing an anti-trans agenda by, somewhat successfully, arguing that T is new and dragging the rest of the acronym down. But is that true? Answering the question when was the T added to LGBT, Sarah Clarke writes;

UK’s private gender clinics; a guide to getting on hormones

Healthcare for transgender and gender diverse people in the UK right now is a battlefield and amidst the smoke, dust and debris it can be very difficult to find one's way out of no mans land. Even the UK's private gender clinics are no guarantee, Eli Cugini writes;

Life in Thailand made it harder for me to come out as trans

The western world has a perception of our Southeast Asian country as very progressive and LGBTQIA+ friendly. I suppose there is some truth in that.  We even recently passed a marriage equality bill! But life in Thailand as a transgender lesbian woman doesn't actually match up to that idealised view.

Andrew Joseph White’s writing is exactly what autistic transgender people like me needed when we were younger

I adored books as a child but had always struggled to find characters I could really relate to or who thought like me. I felt very alone and like there was something deeply wrong with me. This carried on through into my adulthood with all characters in fiction feeling like aliens to me. That is until my friend recommended a horror book by autistic transgender author, Andrew Joseph White.

Mithago’s Burn A Building is a passionate call-to-arms that leaves nowhere to hide

After 8 years away from the video production scene social media accounts for Scroobius Pip suddenly started lighting up with an announcement. Mithago's Burn A Building had moved him so much we just had to go take a look for ourselves. Crow Rudd writes;

VTubing is, perhaps unsurprisingly, incredibly intersectional

At the 2023 Game Awards we didn’t just have Alan Wake the Musical, Jordan Peele coming out of an ominous door and surprise God of War DLC. We also had confirmation that VTubing is taking over the world of livestreaming, and for good reason, as Twitch’s most subscribed female streamer (with an additional 1.87M followers) Ironmouse took home the award for Content Creator of the Year.

For Women Scotland case lost, what does it mean?

For Women Scotland case has been lost. This was an appeal in which they argued that women with a GRC should not be considered of the female sex for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010. The judgment of the Inner House of the Court of Session - Scotland’s highest court - held that a trans woman with a GRC falls within the definition of ‘woman’ for the purposes of section 11 of the Equality Act 2010, which protects against discrimination on the basis of sex.

Spareparts Joque review; a pricey harness but worth it

We all know this scenario, you are down to clown and the mood is set. You pull out your well curated collection of toys like a wine connoisseur of orgasms. You click that bad boy into your harness, ready to ruin this lovely person who is ready to be jack hammered into the afterlife. But alas you are fat and the harness isn’t big enough, even worse the fabric cuts into your skin like paper cuts and the jackhammering has ended with a weird plop as the toy has abandoned all hope and unceremoniously falls out of the o-ring of your harness. No worries though, the days of horny fat suffering have come to an end.

Why the ‘Gays for Gaza’ position makes perfect sense

With the Israeli government’s ethnic cleansing in Gaza and the West Bank approaching a third month, and with the war crimes growing ever more flagrant, frequent and egregious, it is perhaps expected that the propaganda war would also begin to intensify. Bad faith arguments abound, nakedly dishonest justifications are wheeled out without anything even approaching the commensurate degree of shame, and attacks on those expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people are stepped up by those running interference for these atrocities.

Law 111: Japan’s trans sterilisation now unconstitutional, Supreme Court rules

In order to change their gender marker Japanese people have had to submit to trans sterilisation via Law 111. However a recent Supreme Court ruling has found this to be unconstitutional, covering this momentous change for Japanese trans people, Mako Nakajima writes;

12 or 16? UK Government’s bizarre attempt to deflect from trans suicides feat Prof Louis Appleby

There has been a lot of talk about trans suicide recently, especially as it pertains to transgender youth, after Wes Streeting announced he would pursue making Victoria Atkins' ban on puberty blocking medication permanent.
