  • Entertainment ...But There�s No Dick?

    Trans men, like all the rest of you alcoholic homos, sometimes get drunk and accidentally have sex with their friends. The morning after too many manhattans and one such naked romp, in the hangover haze of potential awkwardness, I broke the tension by asking my previously platonic bio-guy pal a question. 'How did it feel being inside, uh, that other hole?' I asked, solely for the purpose of scientific inquiry and advancement of all trans-kind. 'Surprisingly similar,' he said, 'but with easier access.'

    How do you turn a penis into a vagina? It's not as difficult from a medical point of view as you might think. Yes, it involves some rather delicate major surgery and the risk of all kinds of ghastly complications -- and nobody undertakes such a project lightly. But -- and I know this will come as a disappointment to many -- male and female genitalia are, anatomically speaking, sufficiently alike to make the procedure relatively straightforward. Essentially, the penis is turned inside out, inverted, and placed inside a cavity tunneled out of the lower abdomen.

    Since the 1990s, Candis Cayne has been dazzling queer audiences with her one-woman shows -- an outrageous and entertaining mix of comedy, dancing, and improv. Now she's finally broken into the mainstream on ABC's Dirty Sexy Money, playing Billy Baldwin's love interest, Carmelita, the first recurring transgender character played by a transgender actor on prime-time television. Trans writer and activist Julia Serano recently sat down with the newly minted California girl. Out: For the uninitiated, tell us a little about your character.

    A typical first reaction when I've told people we were putting together a transgender issue is puzzlement. A frown passes over their features, and they seem momentarily thrown. No one, of course, says exactly what they are thinking, but you can see the gears turning. It would be one thing to address the subject in an essay or a column, perhaps, but a whole issue sounds like homework: Next week we'll be studying the history of the transgender people. Please read relevant works and discuss.

  • Entertainment The Trans Fags

    On a cold winter night I take my 20-year-old friend Hunter to an East Village gay bar -- his first time in a New York City watering hole where he could wade among other cute gay men like himself. I convince the bartender to let us in by pretending that Hunter is my little brother who just turned 21 and came out but had his wallet and ID stolen on the subway. The barkeep grudgingly lets us stay, and we take a seat in the rear.

    1. Work with trans people to push your city's homeless shelter system to place residents according to gender identity and safety rather than birth gender. Such policies have already been won in San Francisco, New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C., and are an attainable goal that can save lives. For information about how to get started, visit

    FLICK: Surfboards and men never looked better than in Shelter, the new film from Jonah Markowitz. When family commitments keep Zach (Trevor Wright) away from art school, he finds companionship in Shaun (Brad Rowe), his best friend's older brother. We won't spoil the movie, but let's just say the two build a bond that is more than platonic. The film opens in select theaters March 21. To see its rather inviting trailer, click here.

    In 1884, Charles Crozat Converse, a Pennsylvania attorney with a reformer's streak, perceived a gap in the English language and made a bold proposal for filling it: to add thon (that + one) as a substitute for he or she. Thon could be applied whenever it wasn't convenient or necessary to give the sex of the person being discussed. Converse gave this sentence as an example: 'If Mr. or Mrs. A comes to the courthouse on Monday next, I will be there to meet thon.'

    Who wears the pants? These women all did, on screens big and small, anyway -- and awards voters loved them for it. Linda Hunt: OK, she's not the most feminine in her everyday life, but still, Hunt was an Oscar winning trailblazer when she played a Chinese dwarf in The Year of Living Dangerously. Even more amazingly, Mel didn't beat her up. Tilda Swinton: As the eponymous Orlando, Swinton changes sex midway through the film, but for that first half she's all man and nothing short of luminous.
