Interview with Tela La'Raine Love


Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Tela La'Raine Love, a transgender activist from New Orleans. Hello Tela!
Tela: Greetings Monika!
Monika: Could you say a few words about yourself?
Tela: Sure, let me start by saying I believe this is a truly awesome thing you are doing for the transgender folk who can identify with the experience. I am honored that you wanted me to take part. With that being said you know my name is Tela La'Raine Love and I self-identify as a trans-experienced woman.
I view myself as a woman with trans-experience and not of the trans-experience because being trans is not the totality of my being but merely a facet of who I am. I am a trailblazer in the since that I am one of the few trans-woman of color from the south New Orleans, Louisiana that has chosen not to fully assimilate into a life of stealth. Why? That choice is simply not an option for me.

Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Jackie Enx, an Irish/American radio personality, percussionist, performer, instructor and a founding member of the rock bands as Warrior (Virgin Records 1982-1984) and Rhino Bucket (Warner Bros and Acetate 1989-1993 and 2006-2009). Hello Jackie!
Jackie: Good evening Monika.
Monika: It has been over 20 years since you left Rhino Bucket. What are you doing these days? Are you working on any new artist projects now?
Jackie: I’m always working on something new, I’ve always had a “next” mentality and I do work really hard at whatever I’m doing and then it’s “next”.
Right now I’m playing drums behind SHANE DWIGHT who is a singer/songwriter out of Nashville and I’m producing, arranging and playing with an Irish band that has relocated to San Francisco called THE GUV’RMENT.

Interview with Mey Rude


Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Mey Rude, the Trans Editor at Autostraddle, a writer, blogger and transgender activist. Hello Mey!
Mey: Hi!
Monika: Could you say a few words about yourself?
Mey: Well, obviously, my name is Mey. I’m a transgender Latina who lives in Idaho in the US. I’m also a lesbian, and a comic book nerd and a writer. I work as the Trans Editor for the website Autostraddle.com.
Monika: As Trans Editor at Autostraddle, you follow and comment on all the trends related to the visibility of transgender women in the media. Thanks to the success of “Orange is the New Black,” “Transparent,” “New Girls on the Block,” and “True Trans With Laura Jane Grace” and other TV productions, we have faced an increasing visibility of trans characters. Is it a stable trend?
