To My Trans Sisters

Author Charlie Craggs invited me to write a piece for her book To My Trans Sisters.

Dedicated to trans women everywhere, this inspirational collection of letters written by successful trans women shares the lessons they learnt on their journeys to womanhood, celebrating their achievements and empowering the next generation to become who they truly are.

Written by politicians, scientists, models, athletes, authors, actors, and activists from around the world, these letters capture the diversity of the trans experience and offer advice from make-up and dating through to fighting dysphoria and transphobia.

By turns honest and heartfelt, funny and furious or beautiful and brave, these letters send a clear message of hope to their sisters: each of these women have gone through the struggles of transition and emerged the other side as accomplished, confident women; and if we made it sister, so can you!

Discussing transgender dating with Michelle on Melbourne’s Joy 94.9

Thanks to Michelle Sheppard at Transgender Point of View for having me on to discuss transgender dating, with a focus on my work updating Tinder’s gender options.

Andrea James, who is an American transgender rights activist, film producer, director, and blogger, joins Michelle for a chat about dating and the changes made in popular dating app Tinder as well as some of her current and upcoming media projects.

The one where Andrea talks about a more trans-friendly Tinder

Transproofed now available on REVRY

Our film on transgender dating and disclosure is now on REVRY! 

Ava is a transsexual woman who has recently completed her transition. When Ava invites her hot new boyfriend over for dinner, she calls her best friend Joyce, who suggests hiding all the evidence that she’s trans. While transproofing the apartment, Ava starts to wonder if she really wants to hide her true identity.

Aleshia Brevard, 1937-2017

Saddened to hear of Aleshia Brevard‘s death after a long illness. A true trailblazer in a time when being outed as a trans actor was a career-ender. About ten years ago, she sent me a very nice note that said in part:
As I see it, Andrea, our community is seriously in need of some good, positive PR. Your offer to “put the word out” is greatly appreciated – that’s what we’re seeking. The journey, as all sisters know, begins with the first step. Thanks again, and best wishes for your continued success,
Aleshia
