Red Jordan Arobateau is a prolific San Francisco artist. (I created a page about Red and his long career.) Last Saturday, after almost a year, Red and I went out for an early bird dinner, and then visited Another Cafe on Pine Street.
Red let me video some of our conversation at the cafe. We had a fun, mature conversation about his life, career and more. I repeat: we had a mature conversation. Do not watch this video if you are offended by mature language and subject matter.
In September, Kayden, a gay transman, discovered that he is pregnant. Although still equipped with his original female parts, Kayden was not one of those transmen who was trying to become pregnant.

Professor H. Adam Ackley, who taught at Azusa Pacific University for 15 years, was asked to leave after he came out as a transgender man.

In Japan, an unnamed transgender man has been denied the right to be the legal parent of the infant that his lawful wife gave birth to through artificial insemination. Although the man is registered as male and the couple legally married in 2008, the court ruled that the child cannot be adopted by the father because they are not biologically related.
