New Transsistah Blogs

I am pleased to tell you about these two transsistah blogs that are just cranking up.

Hopefully over time these blogs will garner a readership hungry for more viewpoints from African-American transwomen of all ages, experiences and from different parts of the country.

One day I hope to see the repression lift that my transgender brothers and sisters are facing on many parts of the African continent (and the Caribbean as well) so that they can tell their stories.

Stray Thoughts is written by my homegirl Blackbird up in the Pacific Northwest. She's been the author of an omline diary of her experiences for several years now, and it's nice to see her finally take the plunge and start her own blog.

Not Your Typical Girl is by Lola in the Midwest. I hope that once she establishes a posting schedule that works for her, that she will share more of her thoughts and experiences about being a twentysomething transsistah.

The more sisters and brothers telling their stories, the better as far as I'm concerned. If y'all run across any more blogs written by African-American transwomen, or are an African-American transwoman (or transman) starting one, please don't hesitate to post the name of your blog and a link to it in this thread.
