We fell in love with the pilot of Amazon’s “Transparent" when it aired back in February. We then raved about it and implored you to binge-watch it when its first season premiered in full on Sept. 26. And then we gave you a basic guide for how to approach and talk about the show and its various gender and sexuality topics. Now that we’ve binged the entire season (and are currently rewatching it), there is a lot to discuss and contemplate.

I usually don’t do this but could you check this link ? Armand is actually one of my trans friend and is waiting for his top surgery. Most of you already know it’s pretty expensive. I figured that there is quite a community on Tumblr which could understand and maybe some of you would be able to help, even if not with money, maybe with a reblog? Thank you in advance.

C’est avec une grande émotion que nous sommes dans le regret de vous annoncer la mort des communautés queer. Nous avons mobilisé toute notre énergie, toutes nos connaissances, mais rien n’y a fait. Après près d’une décennie d’acharnement thérapeutique, il nous a…
