Looking for Contributors – Interested?

This site has always been open for contributors.

In fact, the reason transcendgender.com was developed was to create a community where people could post and share their ideas, personal stories and struggles, and gender-related issues they felt were worthy of public discussion. (It’s also a place where contributors can link to their own personal blog or website, thereby serving as a jumping point to a growing community.)

Posts can be in the form of a personal blog, or a newsworthy article, such as the ones creating fiery discussions currently taking place over the DSM-V workgroup selections, or maybe even an interesting trans-related video.

We’re always looking for anyone interested in being added as a contributor. If you’d like to be added, please send an email to help (at) transcendgender (dot) com with your name and wordpress account if you have one or reply to this post with a comment with all the required info.

We’re also always looking for ways to expand the site or make it better. We welcome your comments and suggestions.

  1. Hi Lori,

    Thanks for getting me on here, does that mean I automatically become a contributor, and am I correct in thinking you are looking for the more serious blogs? Being a UK girl I am more keyed in with what is happening this side of ‘the pond.’


  2. I would love to contribute, but I guess I am not a writer. I start and nothing comes our or it doesn’t look right and is all gibberish. I wish I knew how to pour out my thoughts and feelings as well as you all do.

  3. Davinia, there’s already enough “seriousness” going around in our lives, deciding to blog about the comical thing in our lives can certainly provide a breath of fresh air to our lives once in a while. Feel free to use that British wit that I’m accustomed to with you!

    Sherrie, there’s never a rush, there’s simply no requirement that says you have to write with a certain flair of emotion. But I understand where you’re coming from. We all get writer’s block, it really stinks when you have so much to say and can’t come up with the words to say it with.

  4. Sherrie, I think you do yourself a disservice. Your writings on 360° look just fine to me!

    One thing to note for potential contributors who are new to WordPress, and unsure of their skills, is that you can work on your post over time, save it and ask any of the TRANScend GENDER admin to review it before it is actually published (appears on the site). We’re all here to help each other out and provide feedback, so please – don’t be shy.

  5. I think that the site needs to a make a specific attempt to reach out to, and invite, transmen to the conversation, as well as cisgender men.

    The contributor list is basically a bunch of transwomen and a few female trans-spouses, and that, to me, doesn’t reflect the diversity of challenging gender notions at all.

    I think that for this site to be most useful in the goals you want to accomplish, you need to specifically get men involved in the discussion.

  6. That’s a great idea, Kynn. I’d LOVE to have people from all different walks of life, including transmen and cisgender men. I’m always looking for other folks who can bring something different to the table.

    I’ll start asking around, and perhaps you know of some transmen who might be interested in contributing. It started out as “basically a bunch of transwomen…” because those are the people I know. I wonder if perhaps my local transmen friends would be interested and would take time out of their busy schedules to bring something positive to contribute. I’ll have to ask.

  7. Please remove me from this blog’s list of contributors. I don’t like the transphobic attitudes which are apparently allowed here, nor the hostility expressed by the administrators toward me.
