NEW MARKERS

State Department changes gender requirements for passports. Congrats, trans friends. As stationary as our new times with Obama have come to feel (on a lot of issues), sometimes there is momentum and progress in spots and it's great to witness something that is going to be a meaningful change for people I care about.

Meanwhile, the trans doc Damelo Todo has a kickstarter campaign. Wu Tsang, the director, is a onetime Chicagoan--and the doc involves Wildness, the weekly queer party in LA that Wu and another onetime Chicagoan, Ashland, did. Perhaps you have a couple bucks to throw their way? Spread it around, heres the trailer:
