Recommendation: Why I changed my name


Emmett recommends…

This is a video that I made about my experience with my recent name change, and my own personal feelings on being non-binary. Posting it was kind of terrifying, but I’m so glad I did!

Recommendation: Forbidden shorts


Alex recommends…

Photo reposted via nice skirt, bro:

“Swedish train drivers are wearing skirts to combat the summer heat after they were forbidden to wear shorts. Go swedes!”

…and the train company “has given its blessing for employees to wear skirts”. Watch the BBC news report on this story!

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: Rainbow Brite and her horse Starlight


PeggyLawless recommends…

Starlight was a delightfully Queer character in the 80’s cartoon series Rainbow Brite. I had a picture of him on my Trapperkeeper and once got in load of trouble for telling my teacher I was his boyfriend.

Recommendation: A Transgender Vagina Talks Back


Cricket recommends…

A Transgender Vagina Talks Back
an amazing YouTube video

This is one of the coolest YouTube videos I’ve ever come across – I don’t know who this guy is, but he sums up so many of the odd, funny, awkward, self-contradicting sensation and thoughts that result from having a body that doesn’t match one’s identity but loving that body anyway. I’m genderqueer, not trans, but I still find what he has to say about what it’s like to have a vagina to be hilarious, heartening, and thought-provoking. I hope it brightens some other people’s days as much as it brightened mine.

Recommendation: The Magician is a Drag King


A reader recommends…

Just a poem about drag kings and women and uncomfortable audiences. About how identities are shifting and how people tend to assume they aren’t and won’t admit they are a little attracted to nonconformity. This one’s a bit dark, but I thought it made a few good points.

A very interesting movie about an intersexed 15 year old.

From Netflix.com:

Though she’s living as a girl, Alex and her family begin to wonder whether she’s emotionally a boy when another teenager’s sexual advances bring the issue to a head. As Alex faces a final decision regarding her gender, she meets both hostility and compassion.”

Recommendation: If I Could Be A Woman


A reader recommends…

this has really left me speechless, so there isn’t much that i can say. it put me through the full spectrum of emotions in just over two minutes. i really don’t even know how i feel right now but i do know that more people have to see this. it is beautiful, pure and simple.

Recommendation: Bad Axe


Ben Lenoir recommends…

Bad Axe
A performance art video

Many people have a common misconception of how femininity and masculinity are linked to sexuality. Just because I may be homosexual does not mean that I fit the media’s mass marketed version of the gay male. We all face these misconceptions and I think they need to be put to rest. I speak about this through the language that comes most natural to me, art.

Recommendation: Virgina (orginal title: Virdžina)


Woolfist recommends…

It’s an amazing film that portrays the idiocy of a society that celebrates the birth of boys but loathes the birth of girls.

The action takes place at the end of the 19th century in a village near the Adriatic sea. One family, ‘doomed’ with all female children, decides to raise one of the girls as a boy. Towards the end, the film reveals some interesting facts about the life in this village.

Recommendation: A Very Potter Musical


A reader recommends…

A Very Potter Musical
What it says on the tin.

Everybody likes musicals, everybody likes laughing, everybody likes Harry Potter.
I think genderfork is also probably especially theatre-inclined, and some of the roles are deliciously genderbending.

Red is Dead
vlogger

Red has some very interesting perspectives on gender, and goes about it in a deliciously bizarre way much of the time. This video in particular (Gender Fail) capture’s a lot of what I think they’re about.
