Names: A Safer Space Discussion

What's in a name? A whole lot. Names are such an enormous part of our identity. Our names let people know who we are. For transgender people all over the spectrum, binary and genderqueer alike, the names we are given at birth or during our childhood simply do not match our identities. So for many of us, we pick new names. Sometimes we pick a multitude of names. How do we pick those names? What do our names mean to us? What does our relationship with our given name look like?

Medical Intervention: A Safer Space Discussion

For many trans folks, transitioning means medical intervention; hormones, surgery, and the like. But for many others, it does not. How do you know if medical intervention is right for you? Are you curious but unsure? Are you completely decided in one direction or another? We want to hear from you about your feelings and experience regarding medical intervention.

Rule 63: A Safer Space Discussion

Stephanie Meyer has released a genderswapped version of Twilight, featuring an Edythe and Beau. But when one doesn't exactly fit the genderbinary, it's not so straightforward. What would a "genderswapped" version of you be like?
