She is the first transwoman to hold this position and the first trans person period. This is a momentous occasion and congratulations are in order! It is heartening to see the progress being made toward inclusivity and visibility on HBCU campuses, with Jay Jones and Malay Simmons (Johnson C. Smith University) becoming the first trans-HBCU Queen. Congratulations to Jay and Malay!


The Supreme Court Ruled In Favor Of Idaho’s Ban On Gender-affirming Care For Youth.

Idaho recently passed a law banning gender-affirming healthcare, making it the 24th state in the US to do so. Imagine a future where half of the country's states have laws that make your existence illegal. Is this familiar? Did you ever expect to see this on your Bingo card in 2024?

The decision has had immediate impact for families in Idaho, who are now left scrambling to figure out how to help their children receive care.

Word On The Socials


Before Dawn Staley Led the Gamecocks To Win Against Iowa, She Said Trans Women Should Be Able To Play.

I’m under the opinion that if you’re a woman you should play, if you consider yourself a woman or vice versa, you should be able to play.

Via The State Youtube

Salute! Dawn Staley and congratulations to you and the South Carolina Gamecocks, the 2024 NCAA Champions. Women's sports deserve more attention in the media and not because of Trans issues. Experiences and challenges are important to be heard and seen from a woman's perspective, especially in sports. It's frustrating to see more coverage of certain teams like Iowa and less attention given to teams like South Carolina. On a related note, yall saw the new players added to the Chicago Sky?

I had to put a photo of it. But the overshadow is real with the centering and achievements of problematic white players' behavior just shows that when Black Girl Magic starts to magic, it must be met with foolish White Supremacy.

GLADD Media Award Nominee TransWorld Atlanta Returns for Season 2 With New Additions To Cast.

Via TransWorld Series IG

Taking Tubi and Amazon Prime Video by storm, TransWorld Atlanta returns for season 2 with some familiar faces. In season one, married couple Ja’Mel & Alphonso let us in on their introduction to gay fatherhood. Rahkel & Malik showed us how they navigate Christianity as a married hetero-trans couple. This is exciting, more of our stories are being told by us, and with this new cast, we are in for a treat.

Season 2 Cast

Yess huni, we will be introduced to five new dynamic cast members in season 2. Pictured above from L2RT2B: Media personality, Josiah | Gender nonconforming registered nurse, De’Lon | Transman model, A’Jay Love | Singer, songwriter, award-winning philanthropic activist, and author, Domonique Morgan | Rapper, activist, 2AM Ricky. Be sure to follow TransWorld on their socials to be updated on the release of season 2.

Trans Tech Summit Bigger Than Ever In 2024.

The week leading to TDOV ( Trans Day of Visibility) was packed with an abundance of education, self-love, networking, and of course visibility. Trans Tech Social, a tech-focused, job-empowerment organization founded by Angelica Ross and currently under the direction of E.C. Pizarro III has done its big one this year. With just almost a thousand registered attendees, the Trans Tech Summit empowered the tech community bringing tech experts from many areas of the technical side of tech as well as the non-technical.

A standout moment was navigating the Trans Tech app for the conference. A very organized and streamlined experience for those of us on the go and or remote summit goers. This experience was accompanied by the daily Easter eggs and trivia which sparked competitiveness with a few prizes at stake; an iPad and 3D printer along with surprises for the graduating cohort of the organization’s GROW program (Google Certifications & Laptops).

What other summit or conference that’s trans-led pays its presenters?
-E.C. Pizzarro III

With daily themes supporting the summit's main theme "Beyond the Code" and a strategic balance of sessions, summit goers were offered knowledge from various topics including public speaking, coding, entrepreneurship, and healing from our scars, you would leave feeling full from the summit’s virtual environment. I found myself having to straddle between a few sessions as two may have been of interest yet presenting in the same time slot but I could not be mad because the presenters were keeping us on point along with the live chat.

Trans Tech members could register for free as one of the many perks of being connected and by also engaging, you may have had lunch paid for (I missed it). This year was nothing short of trans community joy and I encourage you to check Trans Tech Social out ASAP.

If you missed this year’s summit be sure to follow Trans Tech Social for updates. Currently, the team is on Radical Rest and will return in full swing on May 1st.

The Last Few Simulcast Seasons Brought My Anime Journey To Life.

As we are now rotating to a set of shows continuing from a previous season, I am pleased with my watch value owed to Bucchigiri and Solo Leveling. Both storylines keep you restless at night anticipating next week’s episode. I cannot forget about the artwork, coloring, style elements, and details, all of which I enjoy.

My Beautiful Twitch Community Gifted Me Frieren.

Captivated by a clip of a boss-ass-fight it was made clear to me I should have BEEN started watching- no, READING and watching this hidden gem. I figured I should read a few chapters and then see how the adaptation compares. I am curious to see how my experience enriches.

Wind Breaker is another gift but I may need to let this one cook a lil before I give it a full look. Dragon Raja I will not hold you I simply saw artwork and red hair and I was already hooked. I will also let his one cook and keep you posted.

If You Have Any Suggestions On Anime, Please Let Me Know.


Gaming Doesn’t Hit The Same, I Found A Way Back.

I went on a grind back in January to see if I could challenge myself to be consistent enough and become Twitch Affiliate... AND DID!

I spent the majority of my time hours-on-end playing rounds of Gun Fight and mini-games in COD. I thought I would hate the experience but something about a T-Girl bodying transphobic cis men soothes my soul and nerves. I was also playing with folks who didn’t play about me. I met some great steamers and content creators along this journey.

Shout out to TransActiv the COD Trans Demon Queen. If it wasn’t for seeing her play COD, I would have just been out here still wondering… but now I know the GOWRLS get down in COD and the men seriously cannot take.

For the Spring & Summer I plan on playing the following pictured L2RT2B: FFXIV Online (Finishing Endwalker and preparing for Dawntrail), Dragons’s Dogma 2, Tekken 8, Gran Blue Fantasy Relink (Already beat on Twitch), Vampire The Masquerade: Blood Hunt, FF7 Rebirth (Maybe), Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League (If Snags doesn’t leave me hanging skssk I kid bro).

I still will keep DBD, COD, and GTA Online on deck in rotation to cleanse my palette. If you wanna squad up, catch one of my streams, and let's hang out.

Because They Need To See Us

Community Joy


Wizard Mom Doesn’t Believe In Forgiveness, Unless You Support Her TERF-Ness

JKKK Rowling has been popping up lately and I do not understand why must she continue to keep trans issues in her conversation. Every chance she gets to make a point against gender-affirming care she believes that is a win.. but it is not.

The reason behind this you ask?

Final Report – Cass Review

Although the Cass Review is highly criticized by UK health professionals and advocacy groups, Rowling stands on business backing this as her badge and armor to garner support. Us Trans folk just want Rowling to enjoy her coins and leave us out of her subject text, aka...

Gowrl, B.Q! 🤫

Caitlyn, Heaux Why Is You Here?

Every couple of months the Trans community is disturbed from drinking our water and minding the business that pays us. Disturbed by Caitlyn?! You may exclaim and scoff but hear me out, aunty-elder Jenner keeps the drama.

Trans folks like Caitlyn move in a way where the ripples they create do not affect them directly.

Caitlyn has been a strong advocate with the purpose of “protecting women” in sports by standing on anti-trans bills that would not allow Trans athletes to compete in sports aligned with who they are.

Yes. What in the Clarence Thomas is she doing?

All we know is the opps looking at us like is this you? and we are like nah but the sad reality is because of Caitlyn’s platform and privilege, folks will believe her sentiments and weaponize them in their flawed arguments on Trans people existing, de-transitioning and our need for basic human rights.

All we wanna know is:

Aka Gowrl, B.Q.!

Until Next Time..
