In 1990, May 17th  the possibilities were transformed for lesbians, gay men & bisexuals  after the W.H.O. de-listed homosexuality as a medical condition. This was of course, not the case for members of the trans community who continue to be medicalized, marginalized, unemployed, incarcerated and severely scorned.  Even by those of us who have since been working hard to “normalize” our sexuality and sexual expression.
