Trans Homecoming Queen

AP from the Washington Post

College Of William & Mary Elects Trans Homecoming Queen

The students of the College of William and Mary have elected their first ever transgender homecoming queen.

Jessee Vasold took the field Saturday at halftime of the Williamsburg school’s football game against James Madison. The junior and other members of the homecoming court were introduced to the crowd and posed for pictures. Vasold identifies as “genderqueer,” a term for those who don’t adhere to either strictly male or strictly female gender roles. Students nominated and elected Vasold, who will represent the Class of 2011. An e-mail message left for Vasold on Saturday wasn’t immediately returned.

Amanda Palmer gets it. She understands what music and community are all about and she explains it in her blog post on money, art and the economics of trust.

Virtual Crowdsurfing

hola comrades!

i took the better part of this past week and sorted through & responded to – see below – over almost ONE THOUSAND (jesuschrist) collected responses to the past “why i am not afraid to take your money” blog, since it got posted and reposted all over the place (thanks cory @ boingboing, mike @ techdirt, popurls.com, absolutepunk.net, iconfactory.com, and all the other folks who spread it around & rewteeted it).

i have a lot to say. please feel free to cut, paste and share it as you so choose.

it’s broken down into four parts:

1. Virtual Crowdsurfing (an explanation)
2. Selling Out (my personal definition)
3. Why This Works (for me but maybe not for everybody)
4. Money, Art & Random Balance (the economics of trust)
5. AFP responds to comments

You can read the whole thing by clicking the link below:

Boobie-thon Oct 1-7

I just found out about Boobie-thon which runs from Oct. 1-Oct 7. It is a fund raising marathon of the Bloggers Helping Bloggers charity, designed to raise awareness of breast cancer, and to support breast cancer research.

From the website:

2009 marks the 8th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon. Bloggers from all over the globe send in photos of their boobies (covered and uncovered) to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

In the past seven years we have raised over $50,000.00 for Breast Cancer Research and we are back to do it all again on October 1, 2009!

The 2009 event kicks off on Thursday October 1, 2009 and will run for one full week, ending at 11:59 pm on Wednesday October 7, 2009. Just as we have done in the past we will be supporting a Bloggers Helping Bloggers charityt as well as Komen.

For more detailed information about the Blogger Boobie-Thon and how it started, please visit The History of the Boobie-Thon written by the Boobie-Thon Founder, Robyn in 2005. You can also find another “History of the Boobie-thon” at heyfreak.com.

Our Mission

The Boobie-Thon’s mission is to create a fun and lighthearted event that created awareness and raises money for breast cancer research.

I have personally not sent a picture of my boobies as I just found out about this, but I encourage you to go to the site: http://www.boobiethon.com/ and check it out. It is a very worthy cause.

(p.s. Thanks go to Kevin Smith for tweeting about this event)
