This is awesome! Someone over at SLOG posted a video from the YouTube channel Trannystar Galactica. This is the first I’ve heard of it – transfolk fielding questions, talking about their lives, and being incredibly adorable. Here are a few videos I liked (Leith & Les, you’re awesome!).
What a refreshing find after reading Autumn’s story about Conan O’Brien.
Oh btw, can’t help but notice that some of the people posting videos at TG self identify as trannys (or trannies). This seems reminiscent of some LGBTs who identify as queer in that some folks in a community like a reclaimed label and some folks don’t. Same in the trans community with tranny it seems. Just as queer and LGBT aren’t interchangeable terms within our broader community, neither are transgender and tranny within the trans community. Everybody has their favorite label (or lack thereof). In fact, I think there was a TG video on that very subject…
Anyways, take it away Leith & Les!
