The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFE campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student

Subject:National Transgender Day of Remembrance 2007 List of the Dead
Posted by:tristissima.
Time:7:31 pm.
I apologize to those who have complained about my lack of lj-cut's. Occasionally, I feel the abuse to ya'll's friends pages warranted. This is one of those times. Other times, I'm just a rude idiot. This is not one of those times. Please forgive me.

Many or most of you probably already know this, but tomorrow, November
20, is the National (in the U.S.) Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day
chosen in remembrance of a transwoman who was killed (Rita Hester) in
order for us all to remember those throughout the year who have been
killed or died because of their gender identity or presentation.

Every year, I post the list of that year's dead, that their names might
be known, where possible, and they might be remembered, even if for
just one day. The Greco-Romans believed that immortality was to be found
in the memory of those still living and this was why they considered a
braggart nature a heroic virtue. Let us thus remember these victims,
who have historically suffered great mutilations in the course of their
murder, as if their killers were trying to erase them from the
photograph of existence.

All the victims from all years past may be found on
www.rememberingourdead.com.

After the list of the dead follows the details of the San Jose Day of
Remembbrance which I will be attending. If you live in the area of
Silicon Valley, please come. If not, I beg of you to find out where and
when the nearest remembrance is. Many of the dead were alone when they
died, and many believed they would always be alone even while they
lived. Let not their loneliness continue into the chill after death. Let
them be warmed by the fire of our tears, our thoughts, and our prayers.

Whichever of the alphabet soup you are (LGBTQQIA -- Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex, or Ally -- the last
meaning "we invite straight, cisgendered (non-trans) folk too"), please do
this for them.

Lacking a specific formula as yet, I merely call upon the mup gods to
look, read, and remember:
Hermaphroditus, look at the names of the dead.
Ardhanarisvara, read the names of the dead.
Melek Ta'us, remember the names of the dead.
Eris, look at the names of the dead.
Antinous, read the names of the dead.
Hoor-paar-kraat, remember the names of the dead.
Tlazolteotl, look at the names of the dead.
Azathoth, look at the names of the dead.
Pomba-Gira, read the names of the dead.
Inanna, remember the names of the dead.

Hello there! MY name is Princess Sofia. I am currently pledging for Sigma Kappa Omega. Sister Mistress is in charge of my pledging. She is over seeing everything. I invite everyone to follow my journal as I document all my tasks. She also loves seeing as many comments as possible. She also would like any suggestions for tasks for me to do. Hope you follow along....

Subject:Hmmmm....am I a tea grrl?

Time:6:07 pm.
Well, I am a transvestite but this seems to be something more than that. I like the Betty Paige image but I don't really know what she stands for in the fetish community. I'm old, so old that it hurts, so I don't listen to rap or hip hop, does that exclude me?

I like the sillyness of being a transvestite, pretty much like a woman will often smile at her girlyness. It doesn't mean that she disrespects that aspect of her personality, it's just nice and silly. I sometimes wonder whether I should have grown out of my girlyness but I haven't, so there! Any comments are welcome

Thankyou

Hello all, new member here. I just wanted to say how lovely it is to have a place for all to speak freely and be open and honest with their feelings. I'm a lifelong tea girl, but have always been very secretive about it. But lately I've had the compulsion to tell others. A couple family members and some people at work now know. It's very refreshing and I've only had good responses. So here I'm letting more people know about the Teresa in me and it feels GREAT! Thanks for listening.

I want to apologize to of_ophelia. She was trying to encourage me to meet up with her and her gf on Saturday, get me dressed up, and take me out to a club, but I didn't follow through. I'm sorry "O" that I didn't go, but I was having that "guilty" and "getting caught" feeling, plus I did have a helluva headache. I just stayed at home and watched movies (MP & HG).

Hello, and welcome to Those_tea_grrls, my newest attempt at a semi-decent community. Topics should be endless, so feel free to really talk about anything you'd like. This would be a unified journal attempt at keeping people up to date with what's going on with your life. Want people to tell you how horrendously pretty you are? Post a picture. Would you like to know how well thought out your essay for finals is? Submit it here. Need someone to talk about a new movie with? I'm sure there will be someone to listen (eventually) here.

Yeah, nobody yet. If you are reading this, you are the first handful. So posting may seem pointless, but why the hell not when you have nothing better to do. It's raining out, or too cold to do anything. Write a little blurb about someone you met at the recycling station. Or about how your new caning technique really leaves a great set of bruises on someone's bottom.

Anyway, just a lead off from your moderator. Have fun, be safe, and flex your creativity.

Lovingly,
-Ophie
