Sometimes The Best Way To Find Yourself, Is To Look Elsewhere


How does a normal, average guy get to grips with finding out the girl he’s been dating, used to be a guy…too?

I’m sure there’ve been reams written about this question – from all sorts of angles: his… hers… ‘society’s’… the religious and so-called ‘moral’ viewpoint – the indefensable ‘gay panic defense‘ – and also more typically, a plethora of ‘opinions’ about transgender people from an overwhelmingly ignorant, ill-informed cisgender peanut gallery.

Trouble is, when it comes down to it – nobody knows more about what it’s like to be a transgender person dealing with transgender issues and obstacles – or someone dating them, than the people dealing with it themselves. Unfortunately,this limits the capacity of those who know and experience these issues, to convey them effectively to others. More

Don’t Read Books By Christina Engela – You Might Get An Open Mind!


Back in 2017, after seeing all the hate vented against me on some of my FB posts coming from fans of Angus Buchan (a local Souf Efrikin homophobic hatemonger) – some of whom claimed I was a “fake profile” and “didn’t really exist”, a Facebook friend in the USA sent these images to me on condition of anonymity since she feared reprisals from her narrow-minded conservative townie neighbors.

Apparently a pastor at some unhappy-clappy hate-church near her – allegedly operating out of a local barn – decided I was worthy of their attention and was saying some similar things as the legion of Angus groupies attacking me on Facebook in 2017: about me, my sexuality, my gender, and my writing!

New Release: “The Pink Community – The Facts” Second Edition!


New release: “The Pink Community – The Facts” – Second Edition! Back in 2009 when I was in full swing of my human rights advocacy and running two LGBT rights groups (SA GLAAD and ECGLA), I put together an online information resource which mainly consisted of useful quotes and links to articles online.

As an activist who campaigned a lot on social media against bigotry in form of homophobia and transphobia, these links came in handy to post as replies to enraged bigots, rather than typing out lengthy replies each time! Instead, the link would manifest with a reference to a useful scientific or medical article that would invalidate the bigot’s viewpoint, and they would be left there, seething, embarrassed, with egg on their faces!

Gradually this list grew until it migrated from a text file I kept on my PC, into a Word document – and then, when I started my blog “Sour Grapes: The Fruit of Ignorance”, I dedicated several pages to it there. Later, in about 2012, I migrated it to my official author site, where it still lurks, as a free resource for human rights advocacy. This allowed for page hierarchies rather than just a huge cluster (or clutter!) of pages on a site! More

New Release: A Powerful Statement Against Bullying


“Join a lovable group of children in a delightful romp through an explanation of diversity, understanding it better, encouraging them to be compassionate towards others, regardless of who they are.

Many kids today face bullying from their peers based on differences in race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.

In a world where bullying and intolerance of diversity is becoming increasingly a problem, it’s important to teach children – and adults – compassion for others. More
