All Polls Point North by Raven Usher
About Raven Usher:
Raven Usher came out of the closet as Transgender in ‘99 after ten years of marriage, fathering three children and serving in the United States Marine Corps. She began expressing her views to the rest of the LGBT community as a writer / reporter in the summer of 2000. This led her to be an outspoken voice of the transgender equality fight in Idaho for nearly a decade. She also makes herself available to the transgender community as a contact point for trans issues through the LGBT Community Center in Boise. Her monthly column “Raven’s World” (http://www.ravenusher.blogspot.com/) started in 2002 and has been seen all over the Pacific Northwest. In late 2006, Raven published the “North American Lexicon of Transgendered Terms” (http://www.glbpubs.com/lex.html) with GLB Publishing. It is now a resource for positive communication and education not just in America, but is also available in several countries around the world. Most recently, her new cartoon strip featuring two gay penguins named Adam & Steve,”All Polls Point North” (http://www.allpollspointnorth.blogspot.com/) has been syndicated in print and on line. Raven is now a regular contributing writer for Out Impact, Inc.
