AMC Hires Tranny To Play Tranny!

JboylanH.jpg
ABC soap All My Children got a bit of flack when they hired Jeffrey Carlson to play their now-legendary character, rockstar Zarf (who has since become Zoe). And with good reason – it’s not like there aren’t any tranny actors out there. Shit, when was the last time Kim Basinger had a gig?

Anyway, those of you who scoffed will no doubt be happy to hear that they’ve hired Colby professor, activist and known transexual Jenny Boylan to appear in a whopping one episode. New Now Next reports that post-op Zarf (we’ll never be able to accept “Zoe”) attends a tranny support group and Boylan offer a bit of gender-bending guidance. Ain’t that grand?

When not acting and, of course, teaching, Boylan does a bit of writing – she’s published the critically-acclaimed She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders. It’s a great read, homies.

      I too, feel that it takes a “T-Girl” to play a “T-Girl.”

      Since I have some Movie experience, here in New Mexico, and “performed” for 30 years in front of a classroom, as well as an “Oscar” winning achievement, for 45 years, by hiding my Crossdressing, from everyone, without ever being caught, up until I had my Gender Corrective Surgery……..I’d say, that I’m “Ready for my Close-Up, Mr. Demille!”
