Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One has to wonder how all this is playing with the French participants where traditionally public facilities were shared (although I suspect that tradition has disappeared somewhat within recent years).

To me sharing facilities is not a big issue, even with being raised in Alabama. Maybe it was because I was from the region that was formerly French.

Anyway, one is what one happens to be in their head and all of society's rules and prohibitions can't do much to change that only make life miserable I suspect.

in Paris, hopefully during my upcoming visit:

    The Association Syndrome de Benjamin sponsors a march to benefit the trans-gendered community, commencing at place Denfert-Rochereau at square J Antoine, during the first week in October. Call (33) 43 57 21 25 for more information.

One of my girlfriends who will be on the trip sent me an email that there would be a Monmartre wine-tasting and "walk with Trans" while we were there, and suggested we do it.  I'm so excited!  And we'll also be there for Nuit Blanche.  Thank you Transgenders!  Thank you Paris!
