2010: The Year of the Transsexual?

Lea_T According to this article in today’s New York Times,  “2010 will be remembered as the year of the transsexual.”

“Not since the glam era of the 1970s has gender-bending so saturated the news media. The difference now is that mystery has been replaced with empowerment, even pride.”

(Thank you, Sondra, for tipping me off about this article.)


  1. At first it looked like it would be a good article that referenced all things transversal, transsexuality, transvestism, crossdressing, androgeny. After reading the article I felt disappointed at the simple surface discussion that it provided.

    After reading some of the comments I felt a bit better when I fully grasped that this was for the "fashion" pages of the magazine so it only made sense that it focused on the impact that those who were gender different would have on 'fashion'. Had this artilce been in the 'news' section of the Times I would have felt somewhat more shortchanged.

  2. Baby steps! Hopefully a new world is coming for us all.
