About the author

I’m Andrea James, a filmmaker and consumer activist. I started this site during my own gender transition and have updated it for over 25 years.

I have been in a number of media projects, including an instructional video series for transgender people, a transgender dating show starring Calpernia Addams, and documentaries like HBO’s Middle Sexes and Beautiful Daughters, which was about our production of the first all-transgender performance of Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues.

I have helped produce and consulted on many feature films and television episodes with transgender themes, like NatGeo’s Gender Revolution with Katie Couric. I have also written, produced, and/or directed projects on vegetarianism and LGBTQ adoption.

In 2021, the United States Library of Congress selected this site for preservation in its digital archives as β€œan important part of this collection and the historical record.”
