LGBT Corner

In honor of Pride Month, thought it would be cool to start something like this.

Neat article on the the relationship between Barlow and H-Peel.

Re: LGBT Corner

Nice to have a thread like this.

Due to being born with a hormonal imbalance, I'm male-bodied but have to take female hormones to prevent chronic pain caused by my bodies unwillingness to use Testosterone properly. This means I fit under the 'Trans' umbrella, even though I take a low enough dose that I don't transition fully to female. Generally I try and present as androgynously as possible, as the hormonal imbalance has left me with a very slender frame.

Re: LGBT Corner

Good piece. I do sometimes think straight people used to be a lot more camp and stopped doing a lot of things because they became too associated with homosexuality.

I've posted this on other threads but very relevant here. Numerous authors mentioned.

But this extreme approach has been changing for awhile, and usually has to do with resources for older artists.
