Life as a transgender inmate: confronting a hostile system behind bars and in court 4.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

‘I would just as soon cut someone if they messed with me,’ says Lady Jae but protection for transgender women remains an uphill battle in prison culture

In the visiting room at San Quentin state penitentiary, 25 miles north of San Francisco, Lady Jae Clark looks around the room. “You see,” she says, “everyone is looking at us.”

The large space is filled with inmates and their families. Everyone is talking, playing card games, and eating food from the vending machines. Because San Quentin is a men’s prison, the inmates are all men – except for Lady Jae, who has been in the prison system for more than 20 years.

Transgender singer accuses American Idol of seeking to exploit his identity 4.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Ryan Cassata unsuccessfully auditioned for the show but was contacted again after increased media interest in trans people such as Caitlyn Jenner

A 21-year-old musician says he has turned down repeated invitations to reaudition for the reality TV show American Idol because he fears the show’s producers are seeking to exploit his transgender identity.

Ryan Cassata auditioned for the 2015 season last October but was unsuccessful. The producers told him his performance was not “contemporary enough”. This year a casting director got back in touch, inviting him to reaudition for the 2016 season.

Delhi High Court’s ex-Chief Justice likely to be next Lokayukta 4.8.2015 Asian Age: Delhi
Former Delhi high court Chief Justice A.P. Shah- PTI AAP govt appointment may rake up another controversy as Opposition leader reportedly not consulted The AAP government is in the process of raking up another controversy. This time, the Kejriwal government has reportedly decided to appoint its lokayukta without holding any consultations with the Leader of the Opposition of the Delhi Assembly. There are indications that the AAP government was in favour of appointing former Delhi high court Chief Justice A.P. Shah as the new lokayukta. Justice Shah, who is holding the post of the 20th chairman of the Law Commission of India, is known for his bold judgments, including the July 2009 headliner that found India’s 150-year statute prohibiting homosexual acts as discriminatory and therefore a “violation of fundamental rights.” A highly-placed source said that the AAP government has already recommended the name of Justice Shah for the post of the lokayukta to the Delhi high court Chief Justice. It was on the ...

Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters aren’t mad – they’re fleeing a bankrupt New Labour | Owen Jones 3.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Instead of mocking Corbynism those on Labour’s centre-left should develop a coherent political vision of their own How have the Labour left, from arguably its lowest ebb in the party’s history, apparently ended up on the brink of taking the leadership on a wave of support? If you listen to many self-described “centre-left” voices, it’s because the Labour party has gone quite, quite mad. Cod psychology now abounds to describe the rise of Corbynism : narcissism, people wanting to show off how right-on they are on Facebook , mass delusion, an emotional spasm, and so on. Corbyn supporters are having a temper tantrum against the electorate, so this patronising narrative goes, they think voters have “false consciousness” on a grand scale. Some sort of mass psychological disorder has gripped one of the great parties of the left in the western world, and the only real debate is how it must be cured or eradicated. And the tragedy is this: the great “centre-left” condescenders are able to identify any factor for ...
