Queer Young Thing: Genderqueer episode
A show’s episode on genderqueer people

I found this great episode of an Australian show about queer youth on the topic of being genderqueer. I especially liked that it talked about finding connection, resources, and acceptance.

Recommendation: Conchita Wurst


Brog recommends…

Cover photo: Conchita Wurst: That's What I Am. -- A person with long, black hair, and full black beard, in a dress/top full of silver sequins. They are in front of a silky deep red background, and they have one hand slightly raised.

Eurovision 2012 has been and gone, but while clicking around the videos I came across this — which was only narrowly beaten to being Austria’s entry for 2012.

Conchita Wurst’s blend of masculine and feminine presentation is particularly interesting, and they are adored by the Austrian public. Worth a look!

Recommendation: Edward/ Ed


Dazza recommends…

Edward/ Ed
Character

Hmm, how to describe Ed…

I guess I could start with: “she is a comically eccentric teenage girl around 13 years in age” who refers to herself in third person, dresses androgynously, and chose the name Edward because she thought it was fun. How cool is that?

** Edward is a character on the fabulous anime Cowboy Bebop, where she works as a hacker, fools around, and plays with her dog. When I first started the show I thought Ed was a boy, and when I found out she wasn’t- I loved the character even more.

Recommendation: Adam Torres – Transgender FTM Character


A reader recommends…

Adam Torres: Transgender FTM Character
Degrassi: The Boiling Point , a TV show

Showing the life and struggles of a transgender character on a popular teen show is a big step in creating awareness and understanding of the trans community. As a female-to-male myself, I was amazed by how accurate the portrayal of Adam, originally Gracie, was.

Recommendation: Torchwood


RBG recommends…

Torchwood
Television Show

torchwood

Torchwood is a spinoff of Doctor Who, starring Captain Jack and his own crew back on Earth.

The lead actor, John Barrowman, is openly gay, and his character is a pansexual guy that flirts with everything and everyone.

Almost every character on the show has relations with every sex. It explores gender in a loose but comfortable way, and opens your mind without your even realizing it.

Recommendation: Tipping the Velvet


Ruth Tolman recommends…

Tipping-The-Velvet01

TV dramatisation of the novel by Sarah Waters following the story of Nancy Astley who falls in love with a male impersonator performing in her town and embarks on a journey of self discovery. It has some excellent representations of Victorian male impersonators and public opinion towards them at the time.

Recommendation: ST:TNG “The Outcast”


Nitonale recommends…

This is for the geeks, nerds, and Trekkies out there.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 5 Episode 17 “The Outcast” involves an androgynous race called the Genai. Conversations in this episode explore male/female gender roles, the pros and cons of genderless society, homosexuality, and the attitudes of various crew members.

I found it very interesting that such an awesome show could also explore awesome and confusing topics. A must see for Star Trek fans. Even if you don’t like Star Trek or space age shows, you should give this a watch. It made me pretty happy. :)
