    What better way to separate us from the "CHOSEN " is to divide the sins into what is REAL sin from something that can be prayed over and resolved in just an hour ....

    Every day , I see another report of some "Christian " do gooder , church leader , or Neighborhood - GOOD GUY who has had relations with a minor child . Seems , it's common now for the congregation to "Pray away the sin of this lost soul Bail bonds are collected , Priests are re located and the whole thing is hushed out of existence . . Meanwhile , the innocent victims , the kids are RUINED for life . NO ONE responds to their needs twenty years down the road . Nope , These Churches continue doing the dividing EVERY Sunday from the pulpit pitting US vs The Few . The cycle continues .....

    I'm jealous ! Richmond  Virginia has done well to squeeze out a One day wunda at Virginia Commonwealth University . Course it took a LOT of badgering from people like me to get Equality Virginia to do this going on it's FOURTH YEAR now .

    Emma , under the soon to be signed Texas bill, that won't make a bit of difference . I can already see legal challenges as some states already allow Birth certificate amendments and Texas has already stated they will NOT recognize  any change .

  6. EShaver added a post in a topic Lawsuit: Effects of 'Bathroom Bill' Linger in North Carolina   

    I'm North of N Carolina now by 50 miles . I'm watching the Texas fiasco only because I contract to the Texas Historical society now and I used to own a Brick an Mortar manufacturing concern in Houston .

    Personally , I'm worried as to just how "LEGAL " my Virginia permit is . Here , I'm female . Now in N Carolina and now in Texas , am I Female or just what ? I'm really unwilling to take a chance as I have charge of a Special needs son . How's it going to look when I'm visiting or doing a job and my son is with me and I'm hauled off by police for taking a Potty break ?

    ​Your manager was correct in that some Vitoria Secret stores are indeed Trans friendly more so than other stores . By that , some stores are truly WANTING our business.

  10. EShaver added a post in a topic Dr. Kathy Rumer - GRS in Philadelphia   

    Chrissy, I have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Dr Rumer at Virginia TIES, now twice . She helped inaugurate the 1st Virginia health conference in 2012. She came well prepared and it was my actual first time being able to have a one on one with any surgeon . I have no clue who is scheduled at the fourth year of Virginia TIES other rthan I have begged, pleaded and begged even more to see this conference expanded into something that include more time .

    It was a BIG step first for Equality Virginia to have taken my chiding from years earlier as the director , James Parrish once told me that he thought the Transgender population in Virginia barely could hit 900 people and that was in 2010. He know I had my facts together and as a result , Virginia Ties came to Virginia Commonwealth University at the student commons center for the now one day event . I have been a Equality volunteer since the beginning and I look forward to again doing so this October .

    Virginia TIES is THE Come to event for all Transgender and those wishing information on the meaning of being Transgender. Subjects range from Legal issues with Medicare / Medicaid to surgical procedures . I continue to push for a dress for success class as this applies to Cross dressers as well. There is simply too much Information that BEGS to be shared to the community as a whole here and one day is simply not enough to take it all in . A social gathering at a nearby bar closes the day and all participants are treated to two complimentary drinks via Equality Virginia .

    I look forward to meeting ANYONE willing to travel to Richmond Virginia this fall to attend the event . Bring a notebook as I'm on hand to share knowlee , resources and any pertinent information I can

    ​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

    ​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 .

    FIRST EVER LGBT exibition openes - Richmond Virginia
    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 .

  19. EShaver added a post in a topic North Carolina's HB2 Anti-GLBT Bill   

    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 !!!!!

    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 !
