    Our Canadian correspondent, Linda Jensen, takes a trip to the place where all the breastforms come from. On a visit to Vancouver she drops in at The Breast Form Store and learns that it’s a lot more than a place where you can buy a nice looking chest.

    Whatever Happened to Transgender Support Groups and Conventions?

    | Aug 18, 2014 | Comments (4)

    With the advent of online connectivity we have seen the decline and disappearance of support groups for TGs.

    TG and The Church

    | Aug 18, 2014 | Comments (3)

    I have a news flash for you. The Christian church is made up of flawed humans. Big surprise right? I know. I am stating the obvious.

Spy Vs. Spy can keep fighting it out but N vs. N should kiss and makeup.
