Anime, Be Like, and Beautiful: tumblngkori: jekoh: transtrendsetter: takayababy: xekstrin: this is Hourou Musuko, an anime/manga about a young trans girl and her friends, all figuring out their gender identity and sexual orientations yo yo i just double-checked and it is a real thing and also available on crunchyroll for free! It’s also on KissAnime for free which is a website I recommend 1000 times more since they provide HQ anime without having to pay anything, and they have a wider selection than Crunchyroll I watched the first episode. I can’t vouch for the rest of it but the first episode made my heart swell a bit. A lot of it is about finding those people that you can make your guides and role models, and that’s not something I feel like we get to see a lot, we see the kids just left to forge through on their own in the big and scary.Wavedash why did you do this to me. The anime seems to grab just a slice of the full manga’s story (obviously) but despite Horou Musuko being one of my favorite manga of all time, I never did finish the anime.  I didn’t think it was all that interesting an adaptation, and it’s so good as a comic. The Horou Musuko manga is not only good, it’s really important.  It follow a transgendered girl and a transgendered boy and it follows them encountering and stuggling with: dysphoria trans* objectification the intersection of gender identity and sexuality passing puberty what adult life will be like as a trans person experimenting with (“trying on”) gender signifiers evolving identities binary questioning being a partner to a trans person All while mired in Japanese society and expectations. Luckily for EVERYONE, Fantagraphics press is translating and publishing the comic is BEAUTIFUL hardbound volumes. But if you don’t have the money, I know you can easily find scanlations online, which are translated all the way to the end (Fantagraphics is about half way.) That comic about trans youth you were always looking for? Here it is.

Alive, Church, and God: Catholic Priest Comes Out As Gay In Front Of The Church, Gets Standing Ovation @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.conm Catholic Priest Comes Out As Gay In Front Of The Church, Gets Standing Ovation – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Roman Catholic priest in Milwaukee is finally living his truth after coming out in front of his congregation on Sunday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the New York Post, Rev. Gregory Greiten was met with a standing ovation after revealing his true self to his parishioners, saying, “I am Greg. I am a Roman Catholic priest. And, yes, I am gay!” He also explained his decision to disclose his sexual orientation in a column that came out the following day, adding that he was breaking the silence of gay men in the clergy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He wrote, “I will embrace the person that God created me to be. In my priestly life and ministry, I, too, will help you, whether you are gay or straight, bisexual or transgendered, to be your authentic self- to be fully alive living in your image and likeness of God.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Greiten also condemned the church for its silence and stance on homosexuality, saying, “By choosing to enforce silence, the institutional church pretends that gay priests and religious do not really exist. Because of this, there are no authentic role models of healthy, well-balanced, gay, celibate priests to be an example for those, young and old, who are struggling to come to terms with their sexual orientation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This only perpetuates the toxic shamming and systemic secrecy,” he said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Greiten revealed that he wanted to be an example to those who are still hiding from their true selves or hiding their true selves from God in following the lead of a “few courageous priests who have taken the risk to come out of the shadows and have chosen to live in truth and authenticity.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While it remains unclear if Greiten will be able to keep his position, ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)
