shameless promotion(s)

Kim Komando has an excellent and free daily tips newsletter that I've found very useful. If you sign up for this free newsletter (you can cancel at any time), use this link to sign up for the newsletter and I get a referral bonus. Again, no cost to you; and you help me get a bonus.

Gender issues

Information about LGBTQIA+ (or its current set of letters), trans-gender, and related issues. This is a work-in-progress.

Note that I am not responsible for the content on any linked sites.

  • A blog by RR on growing up trans, transitioning, and insights along the way
  • What is LGBTQIA+ From the site, it is “an abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual, and more. These terms are used to describe a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.”
