All Quiet on the Midwestern LGBT Front?

These days, quiet can only be counted in days and the accused terrorist killer in Charlottesville, actually is from the Northern Kentucky area around Cincinnati and was living near Toledo, sometimes quiet can be deceiving. And, while we are on the subject, my sympathies go out to the victims of the Barcelona, Spain terrorist attack. Sad and tragic, again. The world is a wreck.

On my personal side, I have several appointments coming up, including a group get together tonight which is not a transgender specific group.

Also, next week, I have my fluid levels checked (blood work) Tuesday at the Veterans Administration hospital and a visit with my therapist on Thursday.

My wardrobe has been checked and rechecked for the visits, so all should be good. Knock on wood!

Where ever you may be world wide, I hope you are safe too, and your LGBT life is allowed to be a bit boring!

The "Hatter" and Other News

Due to increased interest, I am passing along the web site to "Fashionable Hats" here. This site may offer more answers to questions concerning sizes, styles and even "unisex" hats! I personally love a stylish hat!

In other news, perhaps you have heard or read Texas's inane B.S. transgender bathroom law, has died...for now and hopefully forever. Once again it seems, many large corporations have come to our rescue, along with many others.

During my visit to the Veteran's Administration hospital in Dayton, Ohio yesterday, my therapist spent ten minutes reassuring us, there would be no changes in transgender veteran care. Someone added "for now" and that is probably the best we can do right now with the so called president we have in Washington.

So, regardless. the transgender community still is having victories in this bleak time.

Good news is good news!

LGBT History Time

Exported.; SUN;"From Denmark one day in June 1952 did there arrive at the Bronx home of Board of Education carpenter George Jorgensen and his wife, Florence, a letter from 26-year-old George Jr., or Brud, as the family called him, who, several years earlier, following a brief service in the United States Army and a term of employment at the New York office of the RKO-Pathe newsreel people, had relocated to Copenhagen to pursue a career as a magazine photographer. Brud's tone suggested that there was something he wished to share."

For the letter she wrote go here to the Daily News of New York.
