It was a good workshop.
Maybe this is an indication are changes are happening.
These changes include the expanding political assertiveness of transgender people. This includes greater awareness of the range and size of the transgender communities.
Anyhoo... less of the work areas. Well, kind of. I watched part of Eddie Izzard's first live video 'Live at the Ambassadors' which isn't on DVD and the video tapes are now collectable. He hadn't come out as being explicitly a transvestite at that point so it's kind of strange to watch him wearing quite boring drab clothes.
As soon as I wrote that I was thinking, we now expect him to be wearing at least make-up. That's quite a transition of acceptance I guess.
Although he did get assaulted coming out of a theatre a few years ago for wearing make-up. Hmmm.... does that mean gay people 'come out of the closet' whereas transgender people 'come out of the theatre'?
I like that phrase!
