About Me I have a long history of activism for transsexual rights. I founded KCGS, Gender Dysphoria Support, and Transgender Nation San Francisco. I was active in organizing the first year, pre Camp-Trans response to the Nancy Burkholder MWMF affair.
I was the editor and publisher of the Transsexual News Telegraph for it's first several issues. I joined the Hijra community in 1993, and have been going back and forth since.
I'm currently starting a school for TG people in India, www.pragatischool.org
