29-year-old singer misono announced on the NTV program Konya Kurabete Mimashita on Tuesday that she will be retiring from the entertainment industry next year. She said that she had planned from the start to work in the industry until she was 30. She remarked that she "wanted to be number one," but could not accomplish this in entertainment. She added that she now "wants to work at a hostess club," an area where she might be able to become "number one."

Tavares Spencer, the 16 year old teen who robbed and shot trans woman Coko McDonald back on April 9 and gleefully bragged about on social media will be spending time in the Florida penal system.
Spencer was tried as an adult and found guilty back in October of attempted first degree murder, robbery with a firearm, attempted second degree murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery.
The trial featured testimony from Coko Williams and a failed attempt by Spencer's defense attorney to deploy the odious 'trans panic' defense.
Our transsister Coko is not only thankfully alive to tell her story, she got the early Christmas present of seeing justice being served
The judge in this case noted his pattern of recent criminal behavior and the testimony from Tampa PD detectives about his lack of remorse in the shooting. He sentenced Spencer to spend the next 25 years of his young life in jail for letting his transphobia get the best of him.
FNC Entertainment artists Juniel and CNBlue’s Lee Jong Hyun recently came together to record a seasonal project single album, “Romantic J.”

Universe, my dreams are supposed to PROVIDE WHAT I DO NOT GET TO HAVE. Next time, I expect wings dammit.
When one of the participants in that FB discussion stated that these type of incidents are why transwomen who pass go stealth, I responded that this is exactly why transpeople need to be out and proud about who they are.
Being in stealth doesn't help the trans community. It only helps the individual that is in stealth.
Hiding from the transphobic bigotry and hate doesn't and will never make it go away. The only thing that will make it go away is increased visibility of trans people, increased education about our lives and the issues we face, and getting laws passed to protect our human rights.
I say that because light skinned people in the African-American community that tried to erase their connections to their Black heritage to acquire pseudo White privilege saw it all come crashing down once their Black heritage was discovered.
The salient point I'm making here is that you cannot fight for your human rights in hiding. We have tried that in the trans community at the behest of the medical gatekeepers for the first 30 years post Christine Jorgensen's arrival from Denmark 60 years ago. It didn't work then and it won't work now.
And yes, the Religious Right is now coming for us, and we better be tough minded enough to stand up to them and punch them in the nose when necessary, not cowering in the shadows hoping they'll go away because they won't. .
It's no accident that since more transpeople have come out, are openly living their lives and are being ambassadors for our community, we have made tremendous trans human rights progress.
But our trans human rights job is not yet complete. We still have much work left to do to eradicate anti-trans bigotry and hatred. The journey to full acceptance of our community with codified human rights is not done and we have many miles to go before it is finished.

More live action Rurouni Kenshin news has rolled in, this time revealing Tatsuya Fujiwara's version of the fan favorite villain, Makoto Shishio. Much to my personal surprise, the production team clearly didn't stray too far from the source material in terms of designing the character for the real world.
If anything, his skin actually looks more messed up than his manga incarnation. Hopefully we'll be getting a bigger, full body image of Shishio sometime in the future. In the meantime, I continue to be impressed by how Keishi Otomo and his team have been adapting this franchise.
Oh how I've been hanging out for the new Inside Out. I'm such an addict! An email from Lee Tran Lam, Managing Editor, gave me little butterflies of excitement. I knew she would be sharing another fabulous home with us. I was wrong. There wasn't a sneak peek attached. No there were two!
"The first home – styled by Andrea Millar and photographed by Prue Ruscoe – is a really quirky warehouse in Sydney. There's a "Spaghetti Bar" sign in the kitchenette, a lap timer clock from a swimming school in the dining room and even a trapeze (!) that hangs between the second and third level. (Originally, there was a rope and pulley system between the floors to move goods. The owners put the swing up to take over the void – and use it for chin ups and fooling around!) My favourite room would be the teenage daughter's bedroom, which has this ultra-colourful rug that looks like a rainbow of burst balloons have been swept into the room." I love this home. I'd move in tomorrow! The second house? I'll share that one in a few hours. Completely different and very cool!
