As I reported to y’all this past week, the first article I’ve ever had published in a mainstream lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) publication was Frontiers IN L.A. Magazine‘s Transgender Blogger Covers Trial of Transgender Teen’s Murderer.

How Valuable Is Your Life?Well, my first article for an alternative LGBT publication was published this week as well. The Gayzette published How Valuable Is Your Life?

This second article is similar in scope to the piece in Frontiers IN L.A. Magazine, but it’s a more coarse piece for a different, edgier audience. Basically, I use “four letter language” in that piece that I usually don’t use in writing at all, and don’t use in my day-to-day conversations as much as I did when I was a sailor.

I’m not going to post the text in this piece, instead, if your’e interested in reading that piece, please go to the Gayzette link and read the text of my piece — found on Page 10 of the May 2009 issue.

I’m planning on writing another piece for next month’s issue, and probably writing as a regular columnist there after that. As publisher Rich DeMarah I were discussing recently, there just isn’t exactly a plethora of established trans writers to choose from if one is looking for a columnist to write from the trans perspective. Frankly, having a political, trans columnist on his team will set his publication apart — even from other alternative LGBT publications. And, of course, I see that as a good thing.

Pam reminded me Thursday that I need to update my Pam’s House Blend About Autumn page to add my media appearance on TruTV In Session, and my two LGBT media articles. Updating that webpage sounds like a project for me to tackle this weekend, for sure.
