A Quick One Before My Head Explodes

Spent the night helping a friend put together a Ikea Book Shelf and otherwise move furniture. I like helping friends. We are social animals for the most part, even those of us who don’t have many friends or acquaintances. I am very lucky that my best friend is also gender queer and transgender. I know that I’m extremely fortunate to have transgender friends. Far too many of us are isolated with out any support or community. That is one reason for the high suicide rate among transgender and gender queer folk. So please don’t pull up the ladder after your self, extend a hand to your transgender siblings who are struggling against a hostile society.
