Everything Trans, Everywhere, All At Once
This Bedtime Stories edition is mostly trans-focused. Why? Because our population, amounting to just 1.4% of youth and 0.5% of all adults, is being targeted for eradication, elimination and erasure.
It’s already Monday in the East, and the minutes that remain for the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones are terribly few on this Sunday night, March 12, 2023. And I’m using what’s left to focus on some big news from the past week, impacting the transgender community and our allies, plus the latest big name to stand in support of J.K. Rowling, and some revelations in the case of detransition darling Chloe Cole (not her real name). So, the news you need to rise up will just have to wait until tomorrow morning, with one exception:
ALMOST EVERY AWARD, BUT NOT ALL AT ONCE: Nominated in 11 categories, Everything, Everywhere, All At Once, the incredible family sci-fi fantasy martial arts lesbian romantic dramedy adventure female empowerment film won seven Academy Awards: best picture, best actress (Michelle Yeoh), best supporting actress (Jamie Lee Curtis), best supporting actor (Ke Huy Quan), best directing and best original screenplay. It was my favorite film of 2022, so I was thrilled to see it clean-up! —USA Today

AUTHOR OF THE COLOR PURPLE DEFENDS J.K. ROWLING: Author Alice Walker, recently more known for supporting anti-semetic conspiracy theories, is now into TERF conspiracy theories. She says J.K. Rowling is right, and trans people exist because we use the word “guy” in a gender-neutral way. Walker did all of this in an essay on her website, where she chimed in on the new podcast The Witch Trials of J.K. Rowling. —Out Magazine
CHLOE “COLE” EXPOSED: Thanks to some digging in publicly available resources, we’re learning more about the detransitioned woman from Southern California who’s been making the rounds campaigning against gender-affirming care. Her real name is Chloe Brockman, and in spite of the fact she and her parents signed consent forms for her own top surgery when she was almost 16, she’s now suing Kaiser Permanente and its medical team, with the help of a conservative group. But even though we now know her parents’ names, and that they divorced in 2019, we still don’t know why they’ve remained silent, and whether they support her crusade. —Ky Schevers, @eyerollsnblood, Julie Rei Goldstein, KNTV and TransgenderMap
WHERE TO LEARN MORE: Andrea James has compiled a complete history of Chloe Brockman’s claims and what’s been reported. Click here.
That’s all for tonight. I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a more thorough rundown of all the news you need to rise up and start your day. Until then… Good night and good luck!
