When I was 19 I got bashed by the police, I was asking them for help because I got hit on the
drivers side. I felt like something was wrong. I left the scene of the accident out of rage and
fear. I kept walking. Note that it was my first year witha license. I missed my therapist
appointment that day, and I think my therapist was worried, I was going to my best friends house
because she told me to go to a safe place when I called her minutes before the accident ever
happeend. Once I left the wreck The police showed up about 15 minutes late with a bundle of
police cars, I thought *DING!* the police will help me!. I walked towards the police and they
tackled me to the ground and slammed my face onto the curb without reading me my rights, crushed
the cuffs on my hands. I told them "I'm not fighting you, You are HURTING ME!" and they
transported me to a jail. I kept telling the cop who was "colored" (african american) (american)
(black) That i was trying to communicate with him. They transported me to another jail. The state
commited me. I was not scared of the jail but was there all day. It kept my life backwards. I got
HATE crimed on. When I was in the second jail as i had no glasses, for they were knocked off my
face. The police officer was laughing at me because of my BIRTHNAME. I turned around and said
"I'm transgendered you idiots" I could not see the papers I was signing they were reading it too
me but i was so disoriented from getting beat up that I didn't know what they were trying to tell
me. was DONE WRONG. The guy who hit me on the drivers side tried to sue me. When He got out o
the car before I walked away he got out of the car and shrugged his shoulders with a smile on his
face....That is why I left.......I did not trust that situation. He was saying "Sorry" without
words. I am tired. TIRED. TIRED. TIRED.
Are you a writer or an artist, or interested in planning for a community? Are you a feminist, gender variant or transgender person, a sexual person, gay/bisexua/pansexual, or an ally? Are you between the ages of thirteen and twenty one?
If you answered yes to those questions, you may be interested in a community I’m planning, called Teen Gender Activists. It will be entirely ran by teens, for teens, who are interested in gender and its role in society. I’m planning on having regular features; a few examples are ‘What It’s Like to Be Me,’ a feature on the role gender plays in your lives, and a weekly feature on comics that have to do with gender roles.
I’m currently looking for artists and writers interested in working on features, graphic artists willing to make banners and work on the community template, and people interested in moderating the community, as well as general planners. If you’re one of those people, contact me by PM, at rsvampiress[at]aim.com, or in a comment on this entry.

enough... is enough.
what if any and i mean ANY issues have you or your friends had with charing cross? there is someone taking them to www.echr.coe.int/ and your comments below may help to build a better picture of the clinic's practices.
my experiences are of them loosing medical files, loosing referral notes, demanding 2 additional referrals despite having 2 that where adiquite enough for a grc... feeding friends [who was a recovering heroin addict] opiates such as morphine... so many more issues
a dr in scotland has presented a paper on how cost efficient transferring to a private clinic is compared to charing cross this dr is meeting up with people who fund it all in October and as such we need as much info as possible on issues you have had with charing cross - or your friends.
any info more than welcome :) let's help them improve the system
ps i dunno bout the details of the case...

Hi! Pardon for barging in, but I'm training to be a youth librarian. My partner is a trans man, and he ransacked the library not too long ago looking for books with trans characters. He was ticked that he couldn't find anything, and it made an impression. Since I'm supposed to be writing a paper on a sector of youth anyway, I've decided to make it about trans youth.
I'm looking around for trans youth to interview about how they found information about being trans--books, comics, web sites, blogs, clubs, relatives, anything and everything. I'd prefer folks 18 and under but I'm willing to go up to 20. I'm hoping that by learning how other folks got information, and where, I can be a better librarian in the future and help trans youth find the information they need.
If you're interested in doing an interview or a few chats within the next few days, comment here, AIM me at FroggieInBoots14, or send me an e-mail down at GreenoughMST over at gmail.com. We can do the interview over e-mail, IM, phone, whatever you're most comfortable with; tell me which one you'd prefer, and which times are best for you. It can be as short as a quick few questions about your experiences in libraries and looking for trans info, or it can be longer. Whatever time you can offer would be great.
