A female impersonator.. impersonator?

So I was a huge movie buff in the 80's.  VHS was new, ma and pa video rentals were on every corner.  There's an obscure movie with Jim Belushi and John Ritter.  It's sort of cheesy, doesn't have a very high IMDB rating, but it's entertaining for what it's worth.  There's one scene where Jim visits his parents, and his dad is a "transexual", which at the time wasn't widely talked.  As a kid, this shocked me a little, and of course one of the many things that got the gears turning (so if you're a guy, you can become a woman?)  Well, for whatever reason I decided to look this movie up.  Turns out the transexual is actually a woman playing a man being a woman.  Her name is Dyanne Thorne, and she was in a few movies before this one.  Sort of disappointing actually thinking this whole time it was a real transexual (they either dubbed the voice, or she did a really good job of impersonating).

Here's a clip of the scene:

Jose Conseco to crossdress for a week?

To.. Support Caitlyn Jenner, or simply ride her coattails to promote your crappy web show?  This likely won't end well.

transgender surgery at 18

I found this short video interesting (someone I follow on twitter linked to it that I can't remember).  The one thing I found interesting was the comment about photos.  When she transitioned, they took down all the photos because it was a different person.  As an adult I don't see this as being a big deal, you sort of re-invent yourself.  As a teenager who has photos with their family (and still live under someone else's roof), it has to be hard.  Makes me wonder if they'd be open to photoshopping the memories rather than simply dismissing them.

Caitlyn Jenner

I know I'm not the first to post about this, and I probably won't be the last.  So when I saw the photos from the vanity fair magazine shoot show up in the news feeds today, my first reaction was "Holy shit, bruce is HOT!".  I really wasn't expecting him to look that great.  Of course 10 hours of feminization surgery can work wonders (just look at how young Joan rivers looked at 87).  Still, I had visions that he'd end up looking like an aged woman, just look at this posting from last December before he came out:

 It truly feels like the world changed today.  I feel like Caitlyn is going to change people's views on transgender.  Not only through his courage, but by showing the world that even a celebrity that has options has a hard time coming out (for 3 decades) because of the negativity the world has on it.

First Period!

Ok so I follow elvira on twitter, and she posted a link to this page for a new movie
http://www.theblot.com/sweet-campy-first-period-redefines-gay-cinema-7741564

Elvira (cassandra peterson) plays the mom, and it seems to be a movie about a couple girls in high school (played by guys, but they aren't supposed to be playing drag).  It also seems to be set in the 80's which is also a plus, and it even stars Judy Tenuta!  If it were any more campy, you'd need bug spray.
