Graphic novel illustrates Chelsea Manning’s trial

Chelsea Manning’s name is a staple of American headlines, but much of her trial and imprisonment was cloaked in secrecy. A new graphic novel–based on court documents and Manning’s first-person account, and illustrated by Clark Stoeckley–provides an accessible but unsurprisingly disturbing glimpse into her treatment in prison and the courtroom. Check out an excerpt after the jump and then buy the book here.

Feministing Jamz: Chatting with My Gay Banjo

I’m super excited to bring you Feministing Jamz’ first interview!

I first saw Julia and Owen play together as My Gay Banjo years ago in a Brooklyn living room, at some sort of potluck talent show combo where I forgot my umbrella (it was a good umbrella). Though the umbrella incident was kinda sad, I still remember that evening quite fondly, for these two totally captured my heart. Since then, this sweet duo has played countless shows, developed a loving audience, and is now on tour across the U.S. promoting their newest album, Country Boys in the City

We have a long way to go for transgender liberation

We’ve seen important action on trans rights and challenging bigotry against trans folks in recent years. But the past week or so has been a sobering reminder for me of how much work still needs to be done to get the broader population to treat trans women like people.

I’ve spent years now trying to get the media to cover stories of trans folks with respect, to at least get names and pronouns right, and I am by no means alone in this work. So the media reaction to Chelsea Manning’s very straightforward announcement of her name and pronouns was heartbreaking. After so many years of this being explained to mainstream media, when the big media organizations already ...

Guess which news channel played ‘Dude (Looks Like a Lady)’ in their Chelsea Manning segment, and other fun Wednesday games

Sigh. Here’s an infuriatingly thorough compilation of all the worst cable news reactions to the story of Chelsea Manning’s transition, including a mocking, sneering segment on Fox News using Aerosmith’s “Dude (Looks Like A Lady)” as a soundtrack for hate.

We’ve said it before but this apparently needs repeating: hateful, ignorant and childish coverage of Chelsea Manning’s transition, including misgendering and mocking her, is completely shameful and unacceptable. It’s also just plain lazy. As Jos was quoted as saying in a recent BBC blog post, “Just get it right, people. It’s honestly not that hard.
