This Phone App Helps Transgender Users Change The Pitch And Tone Of Their Voices

buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:

The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:

As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”

At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!

!!!!!

And there’s an Android version for those of us who choose not to use the only phone Silicon Valley seems to care about! :)

There is a documentary due to be released on norwegian television about this little girl, named Emma. She’s a 12 year old trans girl, and I’m rooting for her so much! When asked why she wanted to do the documentary, she answered “to show others that they can be who they’re supposed to be, and that they’re not alone” (◕‿◕)

Laverne Cox Becomes First Openly-Transgender Actress Nominated For An Emmy

transitiontransmission:

Can you say ’ HOLY SHIT ’ !

____

Laverne Cox has become a household name, and her nomination today for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black makes her the first openly-transgender actress to be nominated for an Emmy — but it is just one more achievement in an impressive list.

Cox’s first acting gig was in a 2007 episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. She was also the host and producer of 2010’s TRANSform Me. 

Earlier this year, Cox made the cover of Time magazine, and two weeks ago she was the grand Marshal at New York City’s Pride parade.

Cox is an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ rights and often speaks publicly about trans issues.

She has created an awareness about the trans community, which is in great need of more protection and support.

Orange Is The New Black was nominated for 12 Emmys.

Our trailer!

If you haven’t heard about The Switch yet - it’s a magic-realist, transgender comedy. The show follows Su as she loses her job, ends up on the couch of an ex, and starting pulling her life back together. It’s weird, relevant, funny, political, and queer. It starts trans actors in trans roles.

We’re on Kickstarter now. You can help make this show a reality. We want to see this project succeed and flourish. Click here.

So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.

Wow, 500 notes

Girls protecting girls.
