Teddy Quinlivan

Last September, Teddy Quinlivan came out as transgendered and spoke about her experiences and growth as a person.

In the video, below, Teddy expands upon a lot of her experience, the concepts of passing privilege, and more. It's a powerful video and I think it takes great courage to do this, especially in light of the toxic atmosphere for trans people in the United States these days.

So, watch the video, it's educational and empowering.

As an aside, Teddy seems to be latest in a long line of fashion models that are coming out trans. While I have mixed feelings about the modelling industry as a whole, there is something to be said about the powerful message of femininity in this space when it comes to answering the question so many cisgendered like to put forth.

Yes, I'm envious...

This is the Alice Cos Group , a dance group from China that features only males in their cast. They are all, to put it mildly, simply gorgeous and dammit, I'm just a little jealous! Admittedly, at my current age (let's just say that I go back a few decades and leave it at that) there is zero chance that I would ever be able to pull off the look even remotely as well as they can, but hey, a gal can dream! I'm also really jealous that they actually live a life practically straight out of a Fictionmania story; I would have leapt at such a chance at that age. Ah well, such is the dice of life. Anyways, a sample of their work:
