Who is Gavin Grimm? …. Let’s put a face to the name …. a case headed to the Supreme Court …. Title IX protections …. no longer enforced …. “!!


~~February 23, 2017~~ 


The transgender community, (the “T” in LGBT), hasn’t had an easy existence

There was plenty of hope during the recent years when rights for the LGBT community were recognized as basic human rights, including transgender rights.

However, the Drumpf administration has taken it upon themselves to start the dismantling of these human rights.

From Melanie Nathan, a blogger I follow  …. “Today, February 22, that transphobic homophobe the putrid Trump AG, Jeff Sessions, did exactly what we thought he would do the moment he assumed office – AND so hand in hand with that other homophobe and transphobic piece of work Pence – as well as an apparently forced Betsy DeVos Of the Department of Education – announced that Title IX will no longer be enforced to protect transgender students equally in all school facilities, including restrooms.

Title IX guaranteed students the right to a safe and supportive learning environment regardless of gender and protects them from discrimination.
There is no reasonable basis for them to do this except spite and hate of a community that deserves protection and recognition.”
So disgusted!!

I think this is the beginning.

Like the #MuslimBan, the LGBT community is in the cross-hairs now. 
Bad things are headed this way!! 



Transgender Children & Youth: Understanding the Basics

One of the most important and difficult tasks that parents face is how to best support their children while also setting the kind of boundaries and structure that helps them grow up to become responsible and successful adults. Sure, children and teens love to test the boundaries that adults set for them. But it is important to make distinctions between instances where “kids are being kids” and when they’re asserting things about themselves that are critical to their identity and development – as is the case with gender identity and expression.

~Gavin Grimm: Meet the Boy Laverne Cox Shouted Out at the Grammys~

(this case is so much more important now)


February 13, 2017

Who is Gavin Grimm — and why does Hollywood’s most high-profile transgender actress want you to learn about him?

Grimm is a 17-year-old high school senior in Virginia whose fight against the local school board will be argued at the Supreme Court on March 28. The transgender boy’s long road to the highest court in the country started at age 15, when he was forced to endure a series of school board meetings at which adults debated whether or not he should be allowed to use the boys bathroom at school.

ACLU attorney Josh Block told NBC News that Grimm’s case has taken on a new significance with President Trump now overseeing federal agencies like the Department of Education.

For the last 20 years the overwhelming majority of lower courts have been holding that out civil rights laws against sex discrimination protect transgender people,” said Block. “Gavin’s case is the first time the Supreme Court will consider the question and reaffirm that transgender people are protected. With a presidential new administration, these protections are more critical than ever.”

But the case, “Gloucester County School Board v. G.G.,” stands to impact every transgender teen and child in the nation: the Supreme Court will use it to decide whether Title IX protections on the basis of sex can be interpreted to include gender identity, and whether Obama-era guidance from the Department of Education can be considered the law of the land.

To start the day …. “Two months …. seems like an eternity … “!!


~~August 12, 2016~~ 


I woke up early this morning.

Two months ago, around this time,  I learned about the senseless killing of members of the LGBT community in Orlando.

We all know by now that they were at Pulse, a local gay club, celebrating Latin night.

Since that day, many other ugly/sad things have happened.

More details have come out, autopsy results are available.

The killer shot victims more than 200 times in 2o minutes.

The actions of the local and, maybe federal authorities, are under scrutiny.

I wonder why it took that long to go into the club and stop this maniac.

For 49 families their lives will never be the same.

We remember!!

~~Published on Jun 13, 2016~~

My reaction to any hurt I feel is to turn to music.
This song really speaks to me, and really speaks about the pain it can feel to be judged for who you love, who you are, or what you look like.
My heart goes out to all of those who have been effected by the killings at Pulse in Orlando, Florida.
Hate never ends well, and love is the only way this world will ever pull through. #LoveIsTheMessage

 Excerpt taken from the “LION” poem by Adam Childs

“The power of his pounce
Is governed by both his strength
Of spirit and the honesty
With which he meets the earth
For he owns all of his own pain
And paces and growls to warn
Away any who seek to steal his fresh kill
And diminish him with pretty lies
For he owns all his space
As it feeds his strength
As somewhere in the fury of feasting
Lionesses and Lions
We find our freedom
For his power explodes like a volcano
When his soul meets the earth
As he shakes off all avoidance
To seek only truth
As streaks of white light
And pure Gold glisten in the SUN
As the world’s projections
Reflect and bounce off him
There is so much to learn
From a beautiful LION.”

“He Lives In You”

~~Uploaded on Jun 3, 2009~~

Tribute to lions with song He Lives In You. The song matches the clips and pics perfectly. It focuses mainly on adult male lions and their cubs.

He lives in you
He lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the water
Into the truth
In your reflection
He lives in you
