Autumn Sandeen, a new contributor at Ex-Gay Watch who is trans, began a series on gender in the ex-gay movement. Her post today is a useful Transgender / Ex-Transgender Glossary.
I have a fairly new line about trans folks that I scripted for my Homo No Mo play.
Chad, an ex-gay bio male participant in the program talks about the two houses where participants are housed. Men are in the Caleb House and “girls” in the Hannah House. He then adds,
“There is one other house. That’s where they house, um, Terry. (pause) Yeah they are not quite sure yet which house to put Terry in. They’re not really equipped to deal with trans issues here in the Homo No Mo Halfway House, which according to Terry is actually very similar to the gay community itself. (pause) So for now Terry has Terry’s own house.”
Also, Marvin Bloom made a surprise appearance last night in my presentation of Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House here in Palm Springs. He spoke about how he once cast demons out of his computer in Jesus’ name.
Of course Marvin himself has tried to wrap his ex-gay Jew for Jesus mind around trans issues here.
