Indiegogo Campaign for Transgender Tuesdays

Friday, April 13th, 2012

I heard about the film-in-the-making Transgender Tuesdays from an excellent Vipassana teacher, Larry Yang. He teaches at the East Bay Meditation Center among other places.

San Francisco has long been a home for the LGBT community. It’s still rare though for the T to get historical attention. This film will help fill that void, plus provide inspiration for new clinics. Check it out!

Here’s Larry’s letter (used with permission):

“Transgender Tuesdays is a documentary film about the country’s first clinic that offered full medical care (everything from colds to cancer) specifically to transgendered people. It serves as a model for the rest of the country, and needs our help getting out there.

I was the therapist on the Transgender Clinic at Tom Waddell Clinic in San Francsico for three years–and I have a strong interest in supporting this project. Most of the creative force and energy is coming from Trans communities. This film has been accepted into the Frameline LGBT film festival this year, but there is additional funding needed to make this happen. Please help if you can.

The Indiegogo fundraising campaign has started at

Many thanks for your consideration
Larry Yang”

Sometimes people ask white gay and trans issues are linked together. The answer: gender expression underlies both.

CNN’s “iReporter”s share their key messages

CNN invites people to write in about particular experiences; these folks are “iReporters”. They’ve just issued a multi-document piece called ‘I am Trans and I Want My Voice to be Heard‘.

In particular, click through the inset slide show. The diversity and simple human needs of transgender people shines nicely.

Thanks CNN!
