Question of the Week
"I am a MtF living in Florida, but I was born in Ohio. Florida law allows the gender on your birth certificate to be changed but Ohio law prohibits gender changes on birth certificates. Does this mean that although I live in a state that allows gender changes, I still cannot have my birth certificate changed? Or does it depend on where you live? "

In Memory of Rita
by Nancy Nangeroni
Worldwide, GLBT persons are winning increasing respect and right to legal protections, but some homo-and trans-phobic cultures are particularly challenging to change. We speak briefly with Sunil Pant, director of the Blue Diamond Society in Kathmandu, Nepal, on his organization and the difficulties they face. He describes police brutality that targets sexual minorities, and an autocratic government that shows no sympathy to victims.
