Tobi Hill-Meyer, the director/producer of the award winning film Doing It Ourselves (featuring trans women and their sexuality), has a rocking Kickstarter project for a new two-volume film set that is an erotic documentary featuring trans women and their partners called Doing It Again – In Depth.

It is crucial that this film gets the support needed to get off the ground. Trans women, for a number of reasons, are disproportionately under-represented in queer communities, whether queer events, queer conversations, and especially in queer porn. There are a number of discussions about this, and while they are all valid, Tobi, as a trans woman, is moving forward with this project to represent the sexuality and relationships of trans women. This visibility is so important to acknowledge these women as members of various communities, as well as to allow their stories to be shared.

I strongly believe in grassroots community organizing. I know that many of you only have a few bucks to donate; I myself am usually in that boat. However, 10 people donating $5 is $50, and 100 people donating $5 is $500, and it only goes up from there. So please, if you have the ability to support increased visibility for trans women, their sexuality, and their relationship, please donate what you can and help this exciting project get going!

This is not my study, I’m just happy to pass it along for anyone who feels it applies to them, and would like to participate. Feel free to repost!

I am currently looking for participants to be interviewed for my research study on Transmen who are parents and what methods they chose to use to become parents. It doesn’t matter when your child was born (before or after transition) or if you’re the biological parent; this is a study on transmen who are parents in general. This study will be confidential so none of your or your families information will be given out at any time for any reason. There has been very little research conducted on this topic so it is a very important area to learn and understand. This is a test trial for a sociological research class at the University of New Mexico. If the test trial goes well though I plan to fine tune it to use it as my dissertation.

Thank you,
