Earlier this week, there was a story floating around the internet about how a mother, Rachel Giordano, was scolded in Texas by a store clerk from Martha’s Minatures for supporting her daughter in wanting to try on a boy’s suit. Both Martha’s Minatures website and Facebook page has been taken down since the incident.  Apparently, the store clerk suggested the mother was a child abuser for allowing her child cross-dress.

Such treatments have been criticized as a form of pseudoscience. Fact is, you can’t change anyone’s sexual orientation. These “conversion therapies” can be harmful and traumatic to youth.

And that was your LGBT newsworthy weekly round up!

Traveler by trade, wanderer by nature, this two spirit walks the earth in hopes to live freely and with ease. I am a trained and skilled artist, journalist, musician, photographer, graphic artist, and producer. I come to Oakland to express myself via Wear Your Voice Magazine as the Manager of Mis-Chief - doing everything from events, photography, graphics, and interviews. If I were to be a tattoo, I would be the essence of light depicted in a abstract brilliance of circles and color with a ratio of time mixed in sparkled and sprinkled a little all over my body. I wouldn't be a street in Oakland, I would be an underground tunnel of excitement and interest. My favorite spot in Oakland is the FOX Theater because I love live music.
