Connecticut's GLBT Community

queerunity
The David Letterman show on the CBS network has insulted Amanda Simpson, a trans woman who was recently appointed to the U.S. Commerce Department by the Obama administration. In the clip below David Letterman announces the news, followed by a guest on his show who breaks out in shock that "Amanda used to be a dude" the man is disgusted and outraged and runs off stage, the segment insinuates the man had some sort of relationship with Simpson and reinforces the sentiment that being transgender is somehow disgusting, misleading, and abnormal.

The video clip, other remarks by Letterman on LGBT issues and ways to contact the show are available below:

Hey Fellow Connecticut Ladies!! [Oct. 7th, 2009|06:38 pm]
Connecticut's GLBT Community

Ever wanted to play football with the boys when you were a kid?

Well, here is your chance....

Open tryouts for the Connecticut Crush Women's Football Team!


The Connecticut Crush are entering their 10th year and are having open tryouts for all interested women. Don't know anything about football? No problem, we can condition you, we can teach you football, all you need is heart! We have players as young as 18 and over 50, we have players who are personal trainers in their working hours and ones over 300lbs. We have ladies from all walks of life and are looking for more to come on down.

We are looking for everyone from seasoned multi-sport athletes to ladies who have always wanted to try a sport but didn't think they could. It is a great way to get fit with other women and over time, you will find that great feeling of having a surrogate family too. :)

The Connecticut Crush are members of the IWFL which is comprised of teams all over the country (just like the NFL) and we play by the same rules as the men do...and hit just as hard.  We travel to away games as a team and love our home crowd here in Hartford, CT too!

Open tryouts are every Sunday 2-4 for the next month and are centrally located in Berlin, CT. Reply here or email me at angryduck70@gmail.com for more details.

If you ever wanted to know the feeling of standing in front of a crowd cheering you on as your team scores a touchdown, or want to know or relive that feeling of pushing yourself to the edge of what you thought you could do and then surpassing it, the Connecticut Crush want you!
