LGBTQ* History You Should Know
(And Probably Never Heard Of)
— Compton Cafeteria Riots 1966 
“One weekend night in August — the precise date unknown — Compton’s, a twenty-four-hour cafeteria, was buzzing with its usual late-night crowd of drag queens, hustlers, slummers, cruisers, runaway teens, and down-and-out neighborhood regulars. The restaurant’s manager became annoyed by a noisy young crowd of queens at one table who seemed to be spending a lot of time without spending a lot of money, and called in the police to roust them — as it had been  doing with increasing frequency throughout the summer.
A surly police officer …. grabbed the arm of one of the queens and tried to drag her away. She unexpectedly threw her coffee in his face, however, and melee erupted…. The paddy wagons arrived and the street fighting broke out in Compton’s vicinity.”

what suggestions do you have for a trans man who is on his period?

i'm not on t or any kind of birth control that stops/regulates my period and it will be a while before i can get on any of that. i have severe bottom dysphoria and absolutely cannot put anything in my vagina, so i struggle with tampons and diva cups, but i get very grossed out wearing pads because i get irked sitting in my own blood and i also am constantly self conscious it shows in whatever i am wearing, considering i mostly just wear jeans.

any suggestions or am i screwed?

Dani: Periods are no fun, especially for guys. What a lot of people say to do is to eat healthy and start running and it’s supposed to shorten your period. But that’s a little unrealistic to assume we can all just become marathon runners and never eat pizza. I would just stick with a pad if I were you, and change it frequently. Also, if you haven’t already, wear jeans that are bigger in the crotchal region, and if possible (and only if you want to), wear a packer. Then you won’t have to worry about people seeing the pad. That’s for more of a confidence thing. You really don’t have to worry about people seeing it because pads doesn’t even show through in tight women’s pants.

JAC: Welp, I wouldn’t say you’re screwed, but this is certainly a pickle. Maybe try altering the mindset in which you think about it? Easier said than done, I KNOW. I had a really hard time with it when I was younger and I would never have thought that I could changed how much it bothered me, but as I got older I was able to deal better with it by re-wiring my thoughts and thinking about it as a biological process that did not represent something ‘womanly’ just ‘bodily’ - plus finding methods that worked for me by trial and error over some years. It got easier with time and once I lost it from T, it was really mostly an annoyance over anything else - though I may be over simplifying how I felt about it at the time. Total Con: Not a quick fix and hard as hell to do, but its worth a try. Just know it can get easier, even if only a little. good luck!

Ryo: I don’t really have any suggestions except one I read on another tumblog the other day, but if you dont like wearing pads it might not work. But the suggestion was buying larger pads and think of it as stuffing.

Wow. Another upcoming movie that looks super interesting… starring a trans*woman of color who is actually played by a trans*woman. That’s kind of a big deal.

Read more about Gun Hill Road on Autostraddle.

(Trigger warning: this is an intense video; the trans woman’s father expresses anti-trans sentiments.)
