Is Bruce Jenner Actually Becoming a Woman?

Bruce Jenner transitionAfter reading countless gossip articles telling us basically that the Jenner/Kardashian patriarch Bruce Jenner is becoming a woman all because he likes to wear his hair in a ponytail, I decided the “news” was probably nonsense, but finally, after seeing him with, as the Washington Post points out, long highlighted hair, a French manicure, diamond earrings and lip gloss and his own stepdaughter Kim Kardashian confirming that he’s filming a docuseries about his “journey,” it seems that yes, Bruce Jenner is actually becoming a woman.

An Us Weekly source alleges that Bruce has wanted to transition from male to female, or at least enjoyed wearing women’s clothing, since his Olympic golden days.  Continue reading “Is Bruce Jenner Actually Becoming a Woman?”

Lucas Silveira Of The Cliks Is Engaged!

Lead singer/guitarist for the rock band The Cliks (“Oh Yeah,“Dirty King”) Lucas Silveira proposed to his girlfriend, Skye Chevolleau, who said “yes” on stage Friday night at Toronto Pride 2012.

Silveira, the first notable transgendered rock star (sorry Tom Gabel), simply typed “Gettin’ hitched!” on Facebook after performing at the Canadian pride festival.

The Cliks frontman, who is the sole remaining member of the group, wrote recently for NOW Magazine about feeling “alienated” by the LBGT community. In the article, he talks about coming under fire for using the word “tranny” and talking about his past as a woman.

Transgendered Woman Allowed In Miss Universe Pageant

A promising day in LBGT history was made when Miss Universe president Paula Shugart and contest co-owner Donald Trump allowed Jenna Talackova, a post-op transgendered Canadian woman, to enter the pageant.

GLAAD petitioned hard for the woman to be allowed to compete and for her case to be reviewed, after she was disqualified last month due to a rule that entrees must be born women. Shugart says:

“We want to give credit where credit is due, and the decision to include transgender women in our beauty competitions is a result of our ongoing discussions with GLAAD. We have a long history of supporting equality for all women, and this was something we took very seriously.”   Continue reading “Transgendered Woman Allowed In Miss Universe Pageant”

Ron Perlman In ‘Frankie Go Boom’ AKA Unpretty Monkey Woman

Female hackers are hip right now. Lisbeth Salander and her Macbook plus that CBS show whose script had too much in common with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and was threatened by Sony Pictures.

One hacker movie that isn’t going to have their mailbox stuffed full of legal letters is Ron Perlman‘s latest, Frankie Go Boom, in which he plays a (super hot) transgendered hacker.

It stars Lizzie Caplan, Chris O’Dowd, Whitney Cummings and Perlman’s Anarchy stepson Charlie Hunnam/Jax Teller.

The plot seems to involve two brothers who visit Perlman’s character “Phil” in hopes of removing a scandalous video from the internet.

Once they discover he’s transformed into “Phyllis” things get more complicated, apparently.  Continue reading “Ron Perlman In ‘Frankie Go Boom’ AKA Unpretty Monkey Woman”

Why Doesn’t Carson Kressley Dance With A Man On DWTS?

A recent controversy sparked by Chaz Bono had me wondering something…

If Carson Kressley from Queer Eye is gay and on Dancing With The Stars, why doesn’t he get to dance with a man?

Chaz Bono is dancing with a woman, I understand that he is transgendered but if DWTS is so open-minded then why is that not happening?

They still don’t have a professional dancer who is comfortable dancing with another man?

They kind of all look like they would be to me so maybe that is up to the producers? I saw Lacey Schwimmer’s (Chaz’s partner) on TV the other day, she didn’t look so comfortable herself.
