QUESTION: Use of Library Services by Queer and Trans Adults

question / pregunta: 

Hi all, I am writing a short paper on the use of public library services by queer and trans adults and I was wondering if Rad Ref knew of any recent studies on this subject or any journals that may be worth looking at? Thanks!

QUESTION: regarding copyright for study group website

question / pregunta: 

To whom it may concern,

I am involved in a queer theory group that recently started a wiki page in order to share pdf files of the articles and other reading material we will be discussing in our meetings. We were wondering if this might get us in trouble because of copyright laws, or if you think we might be okay. It is a small group, but I don't know if the size of our group would matter, or what would happen if the group grows in size (which we hope that it does).

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

QUESTION: Affects of testosterone on transitioning men

question / pregunta: 

I'm enrolled in a health class and I've asked my teacher questions about transitioning males and the affects of testosterone on their body, especially considering that estrogen seems to have a protective effect on female bodies. I haven't gotten a straight answer. Particularly, I'm wondering if testosterone makes someone who is transitioning more susceptible to osteoporous and heart disease. It would be great to get this information from a source that has trans people's interests at heart.

QUESTION: what is genderfucking?

question / pregunta: 

i am looking for articles on genderfucking, in particular about what that means for people who use the term and who do not identify as transgender. how do they express themselves in terms of their outward appearance and play with their gender presentation when they 'genderfuck'? i am looking for diversity of perspectives that would certainly include those who do identify as transgender.
