The Law of Transgender.
Transgender just exists, It cannot be created nor can it be cured,
however it can require conversion to another form.

TG London is an information site not a social networking
or commercial site. There are plenty of those already. There are also a
lot of misinformation sites on the web about transgender, some of them
social networking, some transgender dating etc., many personal sites all
about a transperson's journey. There are also sites from
those who oppose transgender and most often they base their twisted logic in religion
or political points of view. This is not to say that all sites are bad, just
some of them. This site is factual and to the point. Most of
the information is contained on and linked to the Articles page.
This truly is the focal point of this site. Every attempt to avoid
error has been made, but if you find one, please point it out and send
an email to Tglondon@execulink.com I will investigate and
make the appropriate changes.
There are a number of articles divided into sections;
one for the transgender person, one for the partners and significant
others of transgendered persons and one for transgendered youth and
their parent(s) or guardians. There are also a few articles on
this link page that should be read by everyone regardless of your
specific interest in all this.
You should start with
Sex vs. Gender; A Primer. It
explains in simple terms what it feels like to be transgendered while
putting a very succinct reality to it all. There is no sugar
coating. Then it would be a good idea to read
What Causes It? This explains
a bit of the history surrounding the mystery of transgender and leads
the reader to a conclusion you may be surprised to see.
The Resources page has
links to external sites about transgender and transitioning for the
The Opinion page has a
list of articles that are editorial in nature. They are meant to
be thought provoking as points of discussion. There are also
personal experience and maybe one or two you wouldn't expect.
I don't pull any punches where it is
necessary to be abrupt. Some of the
content is very short; particularly where people (both cisgendered and
transgendered) make common mistakes, assumptions, and frequently act
inappropriately. Conversely, it is also empathetic to everyone.
Transgender is not something that is easy to deal with
by either the one who is transgendered or those close to them. People get hurt by
it; again, on both sides. Often this is the result of incomplete
or inaccurate information combined with poor communication.
Politics and Religion seem to shroud
transgender and is critically examined here, but, NO political or
religious position is ever taken. A human rights position is
promoted but political and religious views are not. Where the
transgender community is attacked from these perspectives, a strong
stance WILL be taken in the light of human rights.
Hopefully this site will provide some
connection that there are others out there, others who are not so visible.
The information here is provided with the intent to educate and inform
at many levels; from that of the transgendered person, to their
significant others to the healthcare professional. There is
something here for everyone. Perhaps by providing this
information, some of the fear of transgender can be set aside so that
those affected can be truly seen for who they are; people, ordinary
