Cuba Begins Peforming State-Sponsored Sex-Change Operations

If the Republicans have their way, the United States will continue to have an inferior health care system when compared to Cuba:

HAVANA -- Cuba has begun performing state-sponsored sex-change operations after the government lifted a longtime ban on the procedure in 2007, President Raul Castro's daughter said Tuesday.
A sexologist and gay-rights advocate, Mariela Castro runs the Center for Sex Education, which prepares transsexuals for sex-change operations and identifies Cubans it deems ready for the procedure.
Speaking to reporters during the fifth Cuban Conference on Sexual Education, Orientation and Therapy, Castro said surgeries began in 2008 but would not specify exactly how many have been performed or how much they cost.  - Link to article

Did Scott Brown really win the Senate election in Massachusetts?

We do not think so. Massachusetts is a progressive state that has made gay marriage legal. It was a large educated population that is literate. It is simply simply unlikely that the majority of voters in Massachusetts would vote for a Republican who opposed economic and social reform. We ask that the Congress investigate this matter and this President Obama appointMartha Coakley as the acting Senator from Massachusetts until further notice.

Please vote for Martha Coakley in Massachusetts for U.S. Senate

Please vote for Martha Coakley tomorrow.  Her neocon opponent, Scott Brown, is trying to take Ted Kennedy's seat in the U.S. Senate.  He opposes health care, gay marriage, transgender rights, Evolution and President Obama's agenda of change and progress.  Please visit Martha Coakley's site and help anyway you can.  Thank you.

PROGRESS: President Obama Names Transgender Appointee to Commerce Department!

President Obama recently named Amanda Simpson to be a Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department.

In a statement, Simpson, a member of the National Center for Transgender Equality's board of directors, said that "as one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment opens future opportunities for many others."

While Simpson is clearly one of the first transgender presidential appointees, Democratic officials say they're unsure if she is the very first one.  Click here for the article!

Cuba understands that Health Care is a human right

"Even more revolutionary than the right to health care for all is the idea that an investment in health—or in clean water, adequate food or housing—could be more powerful, more effective at building security than bombers and aircraft carriers."

Give Brokeback Mountain the Oscar for Best Film this year

Love is a force of nature

Brokeback Mountain is one of the finest films ever made.  It is certainly the best mainstream American-made film during the past decade.   It is a film that defined a generation and touched hearts and minds all around the world.  It is watched and studied at schools and novel on which it is based, continues to be a best-seller.

And yet, this film was denied the Oscar for Best Film in 2007 because of homophobia.   What better way to correct this mistake in the Age of Obama than by giving Brokeback Mountain the honor and respect that it deserves?

Happy New Year! Let's have a very gay and TRANS-2010!

2009 was a good start for America's transformation into a progressive state.  Let's make 2010 an even better and TRANSformative year!
