I remember when Eva Lin was the first trans woman to sign a contract with Vicky Vette’s VNA Girls. That was back in 2014. Now, Alina Wang of London is on VNA Live! You may have read my exclusive TS Dreamland interview with Alina, but if not, click here if you’d like to. As a member of alinawangxxx.com, you’ll have the access to all the live cam shows from the 50 VNA girls, every day and almost every hour! Of course, these include Alina’s next show on Wednesday, June 29, 12:00pm EDT. The MP4 video preview of The Lucky Pantyhose Delivery Man video on her website reads, “It’s still a nice surprise when the pantyhose delivery man knocked my door, even it was kind of expected! I suddenly felt horny so I requested the deliver man to stay to watch me trying on the pantyhose. How lucky the nervous man was, but he didn’t realise that in the beginning, until his cock is encased by the pantyhose and in my wet hot mouth! I can tell he has a strong pantyhose and foot fetish! If you got the same fetish then keep watching me see how he enjoyed my blowjob and footjob with my newly delivered pantyhose! At the end, he jack off to my pantyhose covered foot! By the way, he has a very nice cock!” I agree. That cock looks absolutely delicious and so does Alina.

In January, the singer Anohni (formerly known as Antony) became the first transgender performer to receive an Oscar nomination. The news felt particularly salient after an unprecedented year for trans visibility. However, her achievement was undercut a month later when she discovered she wouldn’t be singing “Manta Ray,” her collaboration with J. Ralph for the documentary Racing Extinction, at the awards. Three of the other acts up for Best Original Song—Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, and the Weeknd — were scheduled to perform, as was non-nominee Dave Grohl; Variety reported she was removed from the lineup due to “time constraints.”
Anohni had planned to attend the ceremony, but then three days before the event she published an essay on Pitchfork explaining why she’d ultimately be skipping it. In her opinion, she hadn’t been left out of the proceedings because she was transgender — at least not directly — but because, she wrote, she was “relatively unknown in the U.S., singing a song about ecocide, and that might not sell advertising space.” The snub and the Academy’s lack of communication with her opened a wound she’s been nursing for decades, one inflicted by a capitalist system of “social oppression” that she’d refuse to support.
“I felt very defeated,” she says, on the phone from Paris two weeks later. “I wasn’t considered financially significant enough for them to tend to my well-being. It reiterated an ongoing theme in my mind, which is that in America, you have to pay to be respected. That’s what Beyoncé means at the end of ‘Formation’: My money is my best revenge.”
This is how conversations with Anohni often unfold. A question elicits a response that coils its way through personal sentiments, race, class, patriarchy, and avant-queer history, one cri de coeur sparking the next, to the point where you wonder if she’ll stop to catch her breath.

CBS has announced a new legal series called Doubt, which will star Laverne Cox. While top billing will go to Katherine Heigl and Steven Pasquale, the series will mark the first time on network television a transgender actor/actress will play a reoccurring role in drama series. Laverne’s role was designed and written for a transgender actress from start to finish. The initial pilot ran in 2015, but was rewritten/recast with with the intention of persevering the transgender role.
Deadline says the series is about “a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm who shockingly gets romantically involved with one of her clients, who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.”
I guess that means next fall the transgender community will be tuning into CBS, to support our girl. Continue reading the article by SLICKLION on tranzgendr.com.
Bill Passes by Huge Margin

Thursday afternoon the Massachusetts Senate passed a transgender rights bill by a vote of 33-4. All four opposing votes were from Republicans. The bill protects transgender people in places of public accommodation, including restrooms that correspond with their gender identity.
“As a member of the LGBT community it’s really big for me,” Democratic Senate President Stan Rosenberg said, according to the AP. “This is a fundamental right.”
LGBT activists too were pleased.
“My heart breaks with gratitude. I can’t thank you enough,” Lorelei Erisis, a transgender woman from Ayer, told the AP. “I’m a writer and I’m losing words. Thank you so much for standing with us and for protecting us.”
But anti-LGBT forces were angered.
“If this legislation is passed, woman and children will have no protections against being ogled by, or exposed to, naked men,” Massachusetts Family Institute President Andrew Beckwith said. One day earlier his group protested the legislation. That protest included little children holding up signs that read, “No Bathroom Bill.”

“It doesn’t make sense for grown adult men, strangers, to be alone in a restroom with a little girl.”

Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) dismissed criticism of his stance on allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice, after Caitlyn Jenner, who came out as transgender last year, mocked him over the issue earlier this week.
“This is not a matter of right or left, or Democrat or Republican. This is common sense. It doesn’t make sense for grown adult men, strangers, to be alone in a restroom with a little girl,” Cruz said Sunday in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
“This is the height of political correctness,” Cruz added. “And frankly, the concern is not of the Caitlyn Jenners of the world, but if the law is such that any man, if he feels like it, can go in a woman’s restroom and you can’t ask him to leave, that opens the door for predators.”
On Thursday, the Olympian took GOP front-runner Donald Trump up on his offer and stopped by the Trump International Hotel in New York to use the ladies’ room. “By the way, Ted,” she said in a video posted to Facebook following her visit, “nobody got molested.”
Cruz is trailing Trump in Indiana, a state viewed as the last chance to deny the brash businessman delegates needed to secure the GOP nomination. The social conservative senator from Texas has seized on the issue of transgender rights in a last-minute bid to attack Trump, who has said states like North Carolina and Mississippi ought to leave the matter alone.
“Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both agree that grown men should be allowed to use the little girls’ restroom,” Cruz said at a campaign rally earlier this week, arguing that allowing transgender people to use any restroom would encourage male “predators” to threaten women.

A documentary photography series is de-limiting the pervasiveness of anti-LGBTQ African sentiments by giving a platform for gay African immigrants in the African Diaspora to fully express themselves. Highlighting the fashion and style of LGBTQ African immigrants, Limit(less), according to the project’s website, explores how African immigrants “navigate their identities and find ways to overcome the supposed ‘tension’ between their LGBTQ and African individualities.” The artistic, photographic manifesto of Mikael Owunna, a queer Nigerian-Swedish photographer and writer, Limit(less) also seeks to examine “the additional displacement that LGBTQ African immigrants on the continent and the Diaspora face due to homophobia, transphobia, racism, xenophobia and discrimination in their respective communities.”

Not one single person assaulted me. No one tried to molest me. No one was peeking under the stalls at me. And I know this for certain because I kept looking under the stalls to see if anyone was looking back at me. I didn’t even get hit on, let alone raped.
I think I have to start going to other Targets. Because by the sounds of the people up in arms over Target offering basic human rights to all of its customers, there seems to be trouble brewing everywhere except my very own Target. Just my luck.
“This is more about the fact that you should go to the bathroom that matches what is in your pants not what is in your head. I don’t care if a gay guy uses the ‘guy’ stall, I figure penis’s should stick together as well as the alternative. “
For your sake, Chris, I hope you have a helluva lot more in your pants than you do in your head. And I agree, penises should stick together. But I think the alternative would be penises not sticking together. So I’m a little confused. Anyway, I do think you should be careful about letting a gay guy use the ‘guy’ stall. Because I heard you could catch gay from a toilet seat.
“It should be based on current plumbing.”
Jeff needs to have the letters d and r before his name. It’s as simple as that. Dr. Jeff. Just telling it like it is. Using gender appropriate terms that we all understand. It’s all about the plumbing.
“Are you retarded? the argument was the fact that sexual predators will claim to be “trans” or something else to target children and woman.”
Oh Sean. If it’s one thing I love more than trans people being labeled as rapists, it’s a grown ass man calling another grown ass man the R word. You’re so classy you probably pronounce it Tar-zhay.
“Yes over half a million and counting that will never step foot in a Target again.”
“No problem for Target. You belong at Walmart anyway.”
Meow. And there it is. Someone had to say it. We all know this. It’s the unspoken hierarchy of big box stores. Target shoppers look down upon Walmart shoppers. But doesn’t mean it hurts any less to hear it. Thank you, Cari, for your brutal honesty.
“The bathroom still has a stall door- what worries me is the changing room. Women and children are undressing in an open space to try on clothes. A man can just walk in, strip, and put on a bikini? Why have a changing room- why not just strip in the aisles?”
Joanne, where in God’s name are you shopping? And what drugs are you on? And where can I get them?
Ricky Ricardo (I kid you not)
“Anyone who thinks this won’t hit their financials is sniffing glue.”
And guess where they purchased that glue, Ricky? Target. Aisle 5. On sale. And if it’s one thing I hate, it’s getting hit in the financials. Ouch. I think Target sells a cup for that.
“I for one will be standing guard outside the womens restroom while my daughter and wife are inside and if anything resembling a male tries to go in at the same time I’m beating the crap out of them. Case closed.”
Anything resembling a male? Uh oh. I hope I don’t run into Donald anytime soon.
“What if I told you that you could also get sexually assaulted by someone of the same gender as you?”
