About Magazine to produce trans site extension, “About Trans,” beginning in January
(HOUSTON) — As a part of the promise to expand and rebrand their site, About will be adding a new page to its site, entitled About Trans on the first day of 2018.
About Trans will offer trans and non-binary content for the Houston trans community. About editor-in-chief, Anthony Ramirez, also states that he will be looking for a trans associate editor for the page, and hopes that all the content written for About Trans will be written exclusively by trans community members.
The page will be piloted by About’s trans edition coming Monday, November 20th, in honor of Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR). TDoR was incepted in 1999 by transgender woman Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a trans woman, in response to and in remembrance of the murder of Rita Hester. The edition will feature articles an interview with parents of a non-binary child, a personal essay from Houston drag king and trans man, Ian Syder, a listicle on the importance of pronouns, and more.
Those interested in participating in About Trans in 2018 should email Ramirez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
