Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

A complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for this Sunday – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, especially those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.


  1. Signal-boosting only here please (seconding/thirding etc is fine, but keep it short and sweet) ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (adding relevant links for further related reading is always welcome)

    Listening to Rand Paul’s speeches is an excellent way to hear someone else’s writing, but (un)fortunately I haven’t been reading his blog, so here’s some more foodie stuff:

    Bogota Eats and Drinks is a lovely blog run by a woman called Diana who coincidentally looks quite a bit like my wife but with longer darker hair.

    New Trans-Affirming Model Hospital Policies issued:

    They just went up on the Lambda Legal website: .

    The pdf is at .

    They are the result of a joint effort among Lambda Legal, the Human Rights Campaign, and the Gender Identity and Expression Subcommittee of the LGBT Rights Committee of the New York City Bar Association (with pro bono assistance from a large New York City law firm).

    I have been personally involved in this project myself, since 2011, as a member of the LGBT Rights Committee/Gender Identity & Expression Subcommittee of the City Bar.
