    I owe everything to the kids. Their music is still awful, but they kicked the gender door down and went through without looking back. Here's to hoping that soon fewer of us have to live tortured lives because of who we are. Rest in power, Jan!

In 1985, the young photographer Abe Frajndlich took on this challenge. We can say...

    Yes. But I have to look on the bright side and realize if I'd been born even a couple decades earlier things would have been even more impossible. But times are changing, so a lot of people are benefitting from more of us realizing we're all just people.

    Gracias, amigos. I don't expect everyone to get it. I know it's a weird thing to drop on people. It's disorienting. Like, well, if that can be true, what's real anymore?! What can I rely on?! THE WORLD IS NOT WHAT I THOUGHT IT WAS!!! But here we are, and nothing has really changed.

    Forum update

    Well, I think the rewrite is done. Everything on the main site has been dragged into the 21st century. If you come across something over there that doesn't seem to be working as it should, let me know (and I'll break it a little more).

    Maybe he's not trying to say anything. Maybe he's trying to make you feel something. "through the sky a white / hand whirls" means whatever happens in your head when you read the words, or when you imagine hands whirling around in the sky. If you're reading poetry to enjoy it, a little less...
