A periodical events round-up focusing on that which may be of interest to people who identify as Trans* and Pagan, radiating from a central point in the San Francisco Bay Area and extending Worldwide. Maintained by Jaina Bee, a Priest/ess of CAYA Coven, San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA, Earth.
Legal documents in the United States only recognize "male" and "female" as genders, leaving anyone who does not identify as one of these two genders with no option. Australia and New Zealand both allow an X in place of an M or an F on passports for this purpose and the UK recognizes 'Mx' (pronounced as Mix or sometimes Mux) as a gender-neutral title.
This petition asks the Obama Administration to legally recognize genders outside of the male-female binary (such as agender, pangender, genderfluid, and others) and provide an option for these genders on all legal documents and records.
Sponsored by the First Church of the Last Laugh, the world's largest church, this yearly San Francisco Rite of Spring event updates the ancient European Feast of Fools and provides photographic fodder for those who think they know what a weird city we are. Fun for the whole family.

Transmagic is a LYRIC Community Building Group celebrating young trans* and gender-variant youth (24 and under) and their allies.
LYRIC’s programs are open to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) youth and allies (24 and younger). If you are a youth and would like to become involved in any of our programs, the first step is to schedule a New Participant Orientation. Call (415.703.6150 x10), or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) LYRIC to schedule an orientation. Orientations are typically held Monday-Friday, 2:00-3:30pm.
For myriad reasons, there is not enough information or health resources available for trans people. With this class we begin to bridge the gap of accessibility and inequality, offer suggestions for self-care and navigating the medical system. We will discuss ways to support the trans body and spirit with herbs, explore hormone maintenance with natural remedies, and talk about ways to mitigate the side effects of synthetic hormones. Time permitting, we will also discuss herbal support for surgery. All bodies welcome!
