woman                                   freedom





You are a beautiful being bestowed with a gift of life to fulfill this world through  love. You are the incarnation of true self as felt by you within. No one should make you otherwise nor have power to provoke a change, because you are the sole owner of  true self. Be free to walk the path and fulfill your life as you truly are. There is no mistake, no wrong, just wholesome, beautiful, meaningful you. There is only one truth, one love, unique to each one of us, may we all be blessed with its power but be humble enough to recognize that such love is not ours to own and we are the vessels through which it  flows and fulfills thirsty souls and gives light to darkness!

                                                                 Love, Inna

is a general term applied to a variety of individuals, behaviors, and groups involving tendencies to vary from the usual gender roles.Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex" (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex). "Transgender" does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual; some may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable to them. The precise definition for transgender remains in flux, because it encompasses vast array of gender-continuum. A transgender individual may have characteristics that are normally associated with a particular gender, identify elsewhere on the traditional gender continuum, or exist outside of it as "other", "agender", "Genderqueer", or "third gender". Transgender people may also identify as bigender, or along several places on either the traditional transgender continuum, or the more encompassing continuums which have been developed in response to the significantly more detailed studies done in recent years.

To the casual observer, this young couple look just like any other teenagers in love.But pretty Katie Hill and her boyfriend Arin Andrews share a unique bond - they were both born as the opposite sex.Katie, 18, spent the first 15 years of her life as Luke, son of a Marine colonel, while Arin, 16, was born a girl called Emerald who excelled at ballet dancing and won beauty contests.Both struggled with their sexuality all through their childhoods and were teased and bullied but their lives were changed when they both began hormone therapy and later met at a trans support group in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and instantly fell in love.Katie said: 'All I saw was a handsome guy. We're perfect for each other because we both had the same troubles growing up.'We're both size five, so we even swap our old clothes our mum's bought us but we hated.'We look so convincing as a boy and a girl, nobody even notices now. We secretly feel so good about it because it's the way we've always wanted to be seen.'

Isis King and Janet Mock on Transcending Transgender 101

Isis King and Janet Mock are two women of noteworthy achievement. Isis King is a fashion model and clothing designer who has competed twice on America’s Next Top Model. Janet Mock is a writer and staff editor for People.com. Both King and Mock are also transgender.

In the Life Media—an organization dedicated to reducing injustice and chronicling LGBT life—has released a video of Janet interviewing Isis about her experiences as a transgender celebrity and her perceptions of media attitudes toward trans people. King, the first transgender contestant on America’s Next Top Model, recalls being approached in a restaurant by a mother and her five-year-old daughter who wanted to meet Isis, the television star. “I never would have thought that a parent would let their child come up to a transgender woman. It really was touching…. I didn’t grow up and see people that transitioned unless they were on Maury or the Jerry Springer show.”

The nine-minute clip is a steady stream of illuminating sound bites on the power of television to shape a new generation’s LGBT acceptance, taking advantage of teachable moments with Howard Stern, how being called tranny is “the same as the N word,” the crucial difference between transsexual and transgender, and why RuPaul should be more responsible.

March 21, 2012. It's not every day that a major world figure speaks out forcefully in defense of equality. But earlier this month, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon did just that when he made an incredibly powerful speech at the U.N. in Geneva. But most people didn't even hear about it.

Why? After the speech, the media focused on a handful of delegates who stormed out of meeting in protest. Their story - that gay people should be denied human rights - is the one that dominated the day's news. But with your help, we're going to change that.

Our friends at the U.N. let us REMIX Ban Ki-moon
, so we took his speech and created this video. We hope you like it! After you watch, please share with your friends and family, helping this inspiring message reach the audience it deserves.

  Time for a laughter

But how powerful of a humor it is. Fight oppression with daisies, fight prejudice with a smile, fight bigotry making them laugh, realizing how pointless and useless anger really is!
