    Wow you have done so much for the transgendered community! I have a brother (female to male) who is transgendered, and it’s extremely inspiring to see activists such as yourself really making a difference.

    I have to say, I am quite smitten with you already and I cannot wait to read your blogs.

    I am also very interested in online phenomena like hoaxes, trolling

    Hi Andrea, I wanted to chime in with another “thanks for being there / hosting TSroadmap”
    It was really great to find a decent resource at the start of my transition.

    I didn’t know you worked with TYFA, that’s awesome. They’re an amazing bunch of folks.

    TYFA is incredibly wonderful.

    As to blog posts, well, I’ll wait and see.

    But thank you for any help you’ve been giving TYFA!!!

    I love it when strong, intelligent, women fight the good fight. Keep up the good work Andrea.

    Welcome Andrea! Years ago, your website, then TS roadmap ( and later, hairfacts ) were an invaluable source of information in organizing my successful transition. Thanks for all that! I look forward to your posts.

    Hey, your piece on privacy was just linked by Instapundit, a major libertarian/conservative blog. Cool, if you ask me. I’m going to coin a new term like ‘politically queer’ or just ‘politiqueer’ to denote that leanings are not either/or but span a range along a complex continuum – as we have learned about the complexity of gender.

    P.S. My friend just transitioned – I’m sure your resources were (and are) a help to her, as she mentioned how information online helped to make sense of who she was, even as her family of origin disowned her.

    Welcome Andrea. I’m guessing that you are not a transgendered person yourself, but perhaps you have certain views about when and whether it is appropriate to announce that? Will your writing put a subtle new spin on the site name? ;)

      Actually if I recall correctly, Andrea is transgendered and there were (a long time ago) some very interesting shots of facial feminization surgery involving her. If I remember rightly they were taken down because of trolling or some such?

      I remember reading a lot of TSRoadmap back in, oh god, it must have been the mid-90′s. A really interesting and invaluable resource. I’m glad to see it never faded away.

      I’m looking forward to a lot of interesting posts from her!

    Whoo I think you’re an awesome person. TS Roadmap wave invaluable for me…

    would love to hear more re academia.
    golbelization and restructuring have sweep the world, yet academia holds out unchanged

    As a genderqueer queer woman, I’m always happy to see boingboing inviting reasoned and interesting discussion on issues of gender. Can’t wait to see what you post, Andrea!
