Tonight: Live show at 10:30 PM Eastern

Heather and I will be having a live BlogTV show tonight at 10:30 PM Eastern time. If you haven’t been to BlogTV before, it’s basically a live stream with a chatroom attached where people can talk to us. It tends to be great fun. If you’d like to stop by, just go to http://www.blogtv.com/people/ZJemptv at 10:30 PM. See you there!

Update: The show is now concluded. Thanks to everyone who came by!

As we stood at the counter waiting for copies, the young trans man who was there for the same reason beamed at me and asked: “Does it feel good?”

It does.

Thank you.
