    ​All this amounts to is a return to the society we had prior to the 1964 Civil Rights legislation . I'm surprised they don't have gays and Transgenders served out of the Back door in a restaurant too

    This JUST IN from Richmond Virginia !!!!! On the surface , this could be the "Underground railway" that Texas, Virginia and N Carolina inhabitants might need to circumvent POTTY Law ... http://www.equalityvirginia.org/sexchangeform/

    ​I guess here is where we both sorta step on "The THIRD" rail . First , I have little to do with the Gender Fluid and the Cross dressers . To me , they aren't TRULY Transgender . If you're going to LEGITIMATELY transition , you have to accept the hormones . You simply can't play at being transgender and expect some of we "OLD TIMERS " to accept you .

    Folks , we need to build on the momentum here ! Contact the valentine History Center in Richmond Virginia and arrange to have this exhibit expanded to include people who might be willing to be added and allow the show to come to YOUR City for an "ON LOAN " showing !!!!! Don't tell me we can't make it happen ....

    last night in Richmond Virginia at the Valentine History center , I was both PROUD and Privileged to have been a participant along with my son Israel to 400 + visitors who helped make history in the former Capital of the Confederacy . I actually grew up in Richmond although a major portion of my life was in Houston and Dallas . Last summer , I was asked on face book if I would be a part of a Gay- Transgender exhibition . .

    My reaction was , Hell Yeah ! Look, for once , someone was taking me seriously and I wanted to be a partner in this . For the first time , Transgender people shown as Family heads !!!! Suddenly , I was granted credibility . I went to the 1st day opening back on my "Real " birthday of 12-1 last year and I was stunned to see my portrait hum gallery style along with 18 other portraits in a setting where viewers can see short Biographical stories ad the people who comprise a family . In my case , we were photographed in the Valentine court yard , a lovely garden with ornate details of Horses and carriages of days gone by . I know were were with noted photographer , Michael Simon for well over two hours and Israel , tired as he was NEVER let on as to his exhaustion .

    For weeks , then a month , I tirelessly advertised this show to all who MIGHT be interested . The gala opening was last night , 1-11-2017 . Thanks in part to gal pals , I was made over , primped and fussed over . I arrived to find friends who were just ahead to greet me and congratulate my being a celebrity of sorts . The show "One Love " is a first ever collaboration of several corporate sponsors who see Gay and Transgender people as who we are , citizens and contributors to society .

    We were presented Valentine History center memberships , and a lovely copy of our portraits . It is my hope EVERYONE here will get time to see this historical showing .

    Welp , the City of Charlotte went ahead and renounced all it's protections . They trusted the REPUBLI-RATS in Raleigh and got bit in da ass  BIGG!!!!! I'm a skeptic . I learned back in the 1960's Bigg Brutha was a monster and therefore , as a result , I have become one HATED Transgal in Richmond Virginia

    The reason is simple . I never trusted the siren songs that pumped out of Washington DC . I never hung my soul out as most did on Obama promises . Seems like EVERY time I make a comment in either Equality Virginia or Equality N Carolina , I'm a mean rotten to the core "Racist " and hate monger . Yall want reform , DITCH the R&D party !!!!!

    Gennee, the "One Love exhibition opened 12-1 to what is known as a "Soft Opening " Israel and I attended and we were treated to lunch by the curator , Megan Hugues as it really was my Birthday . I was able to speak also to the Virginia Tourism head and I accepted a volunteer position to be a Historical interpreter to this show . Groups of visitors to the One Love show and to the Valentine will now have an opportunity to speak to me and the history of gay and Transgender . friendly posts over the years here .

    This show will have a Gala opening on January 11th to the Media .. The show will continue on to next September 12th , 2017 . Now come on down for a week end and allow me to show ya around some of the "Not on the Chamber of Commerce spots only those in the "KNOW" need to share ....

    Gennee , I'm appalled at the insensitive comments made by Gay men towards us saying we're doing it to have better sex ....

    This year , I notice Transgender deaths are up considerably . Not just say Brazil , where their culture is so stringent , but right here , right in my neighborhood in the United States . It's up to us to help bridge the educational gap between those who are Transgender and those not ! Lets make it a point in 2017 to get out of our "Safe Zones " and actually interact on a mutual level with Non Transgender people . I know it can be done because I do EVERY DAY !
