Helping Hand

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 10:02 EST

For the most part, we bring in enough money to run urnotalone on a daily basis, but not every month. In the past, we have tried fundraising to help pay for updating the site with mixed success. I personally dislike being bombarded with fundraising requests. So for now, this will be our only fundraising effort. Recently, I stopped work on the site update for several reasons with a main reason money. Once we have built up a reserve, we will restart work again. URNA means a lot to many of you. If you can find a way to help, The following link will lead you to our donation and fund raiser page. here is a quick link to PayPal

National Geographic makes history with cover of 9-year-old transgender girl

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 10:02 EST December 18, 2016 by Amanda Hoover A 9-year-old girl is making history as National Geographic’s first transgender cover model. The move comes years after major news outlets have begun reporting on transgender issues, some in ways that have evoked praise for sensitivity and finesse, and others in ways that have been labeled as offensive. Transgender-rights advocates and others under the LGBT umbrella have hailed the announcement about the National Geographic cover as progress after decades of marginalization and discrimination. Reporting on transgender people has lagged behind coverage of other LGBT issues for years, creating what some say is a stereotypical, shallow image of a diverse community that is growing and gaining influence rapidly. From confusion over

Malta Outlaws Conversion Therapy, a First in Europe

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 10:02 EST By Liam Stack Dec 7 2016 The Mediterranean island nation of Malta has become the first European country to criminalize therapeutic methods that purport to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity, the government and activist groups said. The first bill focused on so-called conversion therapy, a discredited collection of quasi-psychoanalytic methods that aim to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. It is also sometimes known as “reparative therapy” or, when religious methods are used, “ex-gay ministry.” Conversion therapy has been increasingly in the spotlight in the weeks since Donald J. Trump won the United States presidential election because of speculation that his running mate, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, su

Kindness in chat

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 10:02 EST

Yesterday, I posted what I hoped would be a call to understanding and kindness after the recent election. Based on the reaction so far, I failed miserably. I am going to try again with a better effort. We as a community need healing. I see it in Chat most nights. I am reaching out to everyone on URNA, please try to listen more, try to find common ground, because we are a community. As a community, we have so much more in common than our differences. So for now, it's likely best to steer away from politics in chat. I ask that we all try to be kind to one another, be kind even when we don't agree. I promise to try on my part. Pam

The Semicolon Tattoo

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 10:02 EDT

Editor (Pam) - this idea appeals to me on many levels. First and foremost, the idea of a semicolon as a metaphor for transition. Two parts of our lives, separate but related. The other common thread is the idea of a semicolon as a promise that something else is next. I find this to be a very positive way to look at life even in the darkest or stressful times. What is a semicolon tattoo? Yes, these tattoos are SMALL, but the meaning of semicolon tattoos are huge… In writing, the semicolon separates two thoughts but indicates they share something in common. Everyday individuals that don’t write often might never use the semicolon. It’s becoming one of the most popular tattoos in the country right now, though. Tattoo artists continue to draw small semicolons onto thousa

This Year, NYFW Street Style Is All About Minimalism

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:02 EDT - Alyssa Coscarelli & Erin Cunningham Sept 11, 2016 If you've been going to, or following, Fashion Month for some time, it's hard to imagine a moment before street style — and its unofficial motto, more is more is more — reigned supreme. Oversized sunglasses with twists, twirls, and glitter; bags that look like dogs, dolls, or fruit; and full head-to-toe designer looks completely took over. A parade of over-the-top peacocks became the norm. This season, however, we're finally starting to see a shift. In the Vetements-era of streetwear and oversized everything, the rebirth of nostalgic brands like Juicy Couture and Champion, and graphic T-shirts that look like they were bought at a gift shop, a different aesthetic is making its way into street style — and it's a l

August 2016 Update

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 10:02 EDT

August update - It truly is the dog days of summer.  At least we have the Olympics as a nice diversion from the heat and humidity. A few items I want to discuss: URNA Chat Rules  Since 2006, URNA Chat rules have required a "Profile" to use Chat. To make it clear, this means a VISIBLE Profile. This does not mean a profile with a picture, but it does mean you have to take the time to enter enough information about yourself so that the other chatters and chat moderators (people with Gold lettered names) can see your age. In general, you will likely need to enter your zip code and country to "flip" your profile to visible. If you are uncomfortable giving your exact zip code, pick one from a large city nearby. If you are still having problems, send me an support request.  URNA

New TG Support Chat Room - Rachelle's Room

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 10:02 EDT

Introducing the TG Support Chat Room - Rachelle's Room. It’s a new chat room opening for our members who are Transgender, whether in transition or post-op, for support in dealing with gender identity related questions/concerns. The support is from one URNA member to another, dealing with the special concerns of transgender individuals and is not intended to give professional advice. This chat room will be more restrictive than the general chat room in that cyber sex is forbidden and private messages are strongly discouraged. Discussions on politics, sports, religion, sex, or fetishes will be banned unless specifically addressed by the group discussion as part of an ongoing conversation. The sharing of pictures without being asked is not allowed. We want an open, active discuss

Recovering Addicts Share How the World is Different Since Getting Sober

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 10:02 EDT

Michelle Peterson - August 2016 My friend Jeff recently shared an important piece of wisdom about graduating from addiction treatment: “Life has not been what I expected it to be when I got out — in a very beautiful way.” It’s true. When I was using, I couldn’t imagine ever being able to live a sober life. No drugs? Ever? It seemed impossible. And even if I did somehow manage to stop using, what was the point? Would all that hard work — detox, therapy, sobriety programs, meetings — even be worth a life without drugs? In a word: Yes. The hard work I did then — and continue to do now — has been completely worth it. And I’ve borrowed the insight of a few fellow recovering addicts to share just how wonderfully different the world is after finding sobriety. You t
