I figured I would at least get a life update in here and round up a bunch of small things.
The first thing is that Trump and the intolerant GOP was not able to change the healthcare enough this year. Most changes for transgender people are being fought (and actually being fought by elements of the DoD even) so it will not be finalized until next year, and if things work right for me we will be gone by then.
The new gaming group I posted for asking for LGBTQ+ friendly people had a remarkably small number of respondants… however the three players we picked up seem to be working out great, and have no problem. So it was worth it (and that experience will probably get its own post or posts later). We are having a blast.
I was interviewed by the Advocate, that should be out in March. That was interesting and I will post what I can when it comes out.
The Norwegian Queer culture journal called MELK asked me to write an article on Wolsey and I and what I have gone through for their Spring edition. This was a total new set of writing and that has been a big thing I was working on as well over the last month. This also comes out in March.
It was actually a really great opportunity. With the help of Wolsey and his editing guru’ness I was able to condense our story into four pages. Of course not nearly as detailed and I was sad to not get to talk about everything, but I think it went well.
We submitted it and MELK editors have already edited and are working on the artwork for it. I am going to ask them if I can repost it here after whatever time they think is appropriate.
Oh, and our book is supposed to be published in March, but they haven’t finished all the edits so I am sure we will have to work on that as well.
Now that work should be working itself out (HAHA) and my commitments for writing are done I want to post more. I know I don’t have to worry about having enough things to talk about with Trump, Pence, and the alt-right up and about. So I have that going for me.
Wow, lots of publishing going on – congrats! Good luck with the job situation (and continuing health care).
