And then there was sexism in photojournalism

As I squat the spare bedroom in my friends' flat, my offender will speak in front of 1600 guest from a national stage, lauded as a national hero and the advocate of the weak and vulnerable. The man that fanatically sang the racist hooligan slogan "Let's go whites" in my face, the man that asked me to get a dick tattooed in between my breast with cum up my neck and the man that never paid me a salary.

This year’s salmon is rotten

When LGBT Denmark chooses to ‘honor’ the Parliament’s Health Committee for their decision to move the diagnoses, they are giving a pat on the back to an institution that has actually done nothing for trans rights in practice.

Removing the diagnosis: Not the answer?

It makes sense to retain a diagnosis for transgender people to ensure the right to this medical care. I’d love to help contest the paradigm that deems transgender a disorder by highlighting that our sick world’s refusal to to accept trans people is the problem. But in the meantime a lot of trans people need health care.

As a Danish trans woman, ‘The Danish Girl’ makes me feel ridiculed

Blockbuster ‘The Danish Girl’ has been praised for taking up trans issues in a major Hollywood production. Unfortunately, this film is just one more in a long line of tragic, stereotypical portrayals of trans experience. Laura Tams wrote a danish review of the film for Alt for Damerne.
