31st-Oct-2011 06:51 pm - Surgeons
Can anyone recommend one? I'm thinking of top surgery here and do not know of which surgeon to go with... so recommendations would be appreciated. Like, a lot. I'm really scared of scarring because I already have a lot of scars (I know there will be scarring but I just want it to be minimal), and obviously I want the surgeons/staff to be nice, so. Those are basically my requirements I guess.
19th-Sep-2011 04:40 pm - bloodwork Callen Lorde and a shot?
I have a routine bloodwork appt tonight and am also picking up a new bottle of T. I'm also due for my shot today. I've been self injecting for a long time, but know that after I get my blood drawn tonight, I'm going to feel like hell and will have a hard time giving myself a shot, especially since it will be very late by the time I get home, I'm sick as it is and i always pass out after they draw blood.

I won't have time to do tomorrow, and really hate getting off schedule, so my question is, is there any way I could have someone do it there, although I only have an appt to get blood drawn?
9th-Sep-2011 12:38 am - Syracuse

I was wondering if anyone could recommend any trans-friendly doctors/endocrinologists in Syracuse, preferably ones with low prices/sliding scale fees? I don't have health insurance, so it's going to be tough for me to pay for all the blood work and doctor's visits that I'll need if I have to do it full price.

5th-Aug-2011 09:30 pm - Trans-friendly personal trainer?
This might be a shot in the dark, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a trans-friendly personal trainer in the NYC area who specializes in bodybuilding? Thanks.

Hey everyone please check out my youtube channel and show me some support! :D

10th-May-2011 01:33 pm - surgery letters?
 hey folks!

can anyone point me in the direction of where I might be able to find a sample letter that one might submit to their insurance from a doctor/therapist in support of a patient getting their top surgery?    my psychologist is more than willing to supply me with a letter, but since she's never written one I thought it might be helpful to give her an idea of what it should entail.

my insurance plan describes the required letter as "a comprehensive written evaluation". 

2nd-May-2011 08:38 pm - Meetings?

19th-Apr-2011 08:59 pm - My new FTM YOUTUBE Channel!

im ryan, and im ftm! yah

i just wanted to post about my new youtube channel, where im trying to set up a place for people to talk about ftm everyday issues. Ive set up a few videos already and am open to ideas to make new videos. one of the more important reasons for doing this was because i felt that the lgbt community has a way of excluding queer people of color, and being hispanic myself, i identify with this feeling. i havent seen much out there based on these issues and thought maybe this could be a place for some of that to be spoken about.

well heres the channel check it out!

A Book Signing and Reading of "The Testosterone Files" by Max Wolf Valerio
Place: Nyack Center, Corner of Broadway & Depew, Nyack NY
Time: 6:00pm
Cost: Free
Info: Max Wolf Valerio’s observations about transitioning from a lesbian to a heterosexual male both challenge and confirm our assumptions about gender. As Valerio
undergoes the physical and emotional changes associated with testosterone treatment, he is intrigued by his eye-opening discoveries about the nature of masculinity and femininity. Raw,
gripping, and poetic, The Testosterone Files offers a perspective on men and women that only someone who’s lived in both skins can speak to with such insight and eloquence. This program is co sponsored by Rockland Family Shelter and Tascha Cafe. Also, this program was funded in part by Poet’s & Writers, Inc. with public funds from New York State
Council on the Arts, a state agency.
I'm hosting this at our house, so please RSVP for the address. It would be great to have your support -- it's not specifically trans but gender turned incidental due to the unbounded nature of the artists.

Sunday, March 13 · 1:00pm - 4:00pm
West Philadelphia
$4.99-7.99 sliding scale
Donations accepted for vegan fudge (warning: contains liqueur)
All takings go to performers

We are artists who exceed the model of venues and institutions. Theater games, experimental music, radical art poetry, installation movement art, and satiric fusion will knock apart your embattled conventions.

Wander in and out except during Morgan's set, sleep under the seats, clean our kitchen, enjoy the flood of creativity however best suits you at that moment. Take culture out of the vaults of a university-educated, white-dominated institution and develop it ourselves.

An intoxicating sampling of local performers:

Joy Mariama Smith, performance installation
The Logical Phalluses, jazz and progressive rock
indee, speaking/moving truth to power in the name sake
Morgan Andrews, Philadelphia Theater of the Oppressed
Qian Li, new composition for full contact violin

Comment or email qianian@gmail.com with questions and to RSVP. This is a drug- and alcohol-free event, 18+ for adult content. 
 Has anyone changed their gender marker within the CUNY system?  

I was previously enrolled in a CUNY school before transferring to a private school.   I would like to get all of my information corrected before applying to graduate school - you know the deal, would like to have all my transcripts look uniform.

The name change process is pretty straight-forward, but I can't seem to find any information about updating my gender marker.

Any ideas?

with tommy
Hi all, I'm looking for a therapist in the city. Must been queer positive. I am going to have Oxford starting January 1. I'm looking for someone that I can talk to about my life and figure things out. If you can recommend anyone that would be great! I have the list from Callen Lorde, but I'd rather go to someone based on recommendations than a list.

Hey guys,
check out this trans road trip film's Kickstarter page. It's a project by an FTM director with an FTM star.
They need to raise some money before the Kickstarter deadline in a few days or the film might not get made.

There's a lot of cool incentives available-- lots of trans/ queer related stuff.

Hey folks!

just wanted to invite you all to this event, TONIGHT at APICHA in TriBeCa! The wonderful Dr. Alexes Hazen (yes, that Dr. Hazen, of NYU Medical Center) will be presenting what your options are and what you can expect when planning your surgery. From what she tells me, her presentation will also include photos of her results, which, as we all know, are pretty hard to come by online.

This event is FREE and dinner will be provided.

15th-Nov-2010 11:15 pm - family therapists in CT
Hi, guys, I'm looking for a trans-competent therapist for my family who is also knowledgeable in Asian cultural issues. I'd prefer not too far from Milford, but I'm willing to travel for the right one.

We're a first-generation immigrant family except my kid brother and, though I'm pretty good at laughing it off at this point, they drive me crazy when I stay with them for a while. Since I'm the only one who doesn't want to go crazy, I'm also open to suggestions for individual therapists.
