Tiwonge Chimbalanga
default [trufflehog]
The case of Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza, the couple sentenced to fourteen years' hard labour under Malawi's anti-gay laws, has caused a good deal of outrage worldwide, and quite rightly. But why, when the world's media has been shocked by the Malawi government's sentence, has it followed it so meekly in regarding Tiwonge Chimbalanga as a gay man, when their own reports make it clear that she is either intersex or a trans woman?

- steepholm in transgender here.

Seems to me to be a pretty important fact of the case that I haven't seen reported anywhere until today. The very least we can do for Chimbalanga is gender her properly.
