Introduction and commentary, including:
The nomination by a leading GLBT organization of a trans-stigmatizing book for an award quickly caught the attention of leading transgender academics and activists, who immediately called for a retraction. Jim Marks, Executive Director of the Lambda Literary Foundation, responds to a small flood of communications objecting to their nomination of J. Michael Bailey's "The Man Who Would Be Queen" for an award.

Hal Fuller's Twisted Nasty News:
The art of poetry is in expressing that which cannot be expressed in prose.
Oakland-based writer, musician, spoken word artist, organizer and educator Julia Serano crafts verse that speaks uniquely to some of the lesser expressed aspects of being transgender. She talks with us about her art and activism, and reads two of her poetry pieces.
Julia is a poetry slam champion and a regular feature at spoken word and queer events. Also a musician, she is the lyricist-guitarist-vocalist for the noisy pop trio Bitesize, who have released two critically acclaimed CDs. Julia is also one of the organizers of the First Annual Trans/Intersex/Genderqueer and Buddies Community Picnic, a series of benefit shows for CampTrans, and the host of GenderEnders, a trans/intersex/genderqueer-focused performance show.
