one small step

Also, I just read something that made me kind of inexplicably happy. The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, which has a womon-born-womon (or maybe womyn-born-womyn or whatever) attendance policy that excludes transwomen and has triggered the formation of Camp Trans, a trans-friendly space outside the festival walls, has apparently ended this policy. From what I read, a transwoman paid for a ticket and was allowed into the festival, and next year that's going to be how it goes. It's kind of a small thing, I guess, but it makes me happy to hear that at least some things are changing.

Interesting. It always amazes me how many barriers humans can create amongst themselves.... but I'm glad to hear about when those barriers come down!
