Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

The U.K. is finally getting its first sitcom focused on trans characters.

The show is called “Boy Meets Girl,” about a guy who falls for a trans woman. And word on the street is that in this show, unlike in many others, her trans identity is NOT a punch line! (It’s sad that this is a big deal.) In fact, Boy Meets Girl was chosen for an award because of its positive portrayal of trans characters.

The sitcom is set in and around the city of Manchester, England, and the series pilot stars trans actress Rebecca Root. The synopsis of the series, which will air in six half-hour episodes on BBC2, seems to suggest a classic romantic sitcom with a trans twist:

"Leo’s had a bad day. He’s been fired (again), is being given a hard time by his mum and, to cap it all, his blind date fails to show up. But then he bumps into Judy and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman. They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s a bit of an age gap between them, arrange to meet the following evening. Leo’s mother is unhappy that he’s having dinner with an older woman. But Leo doesn’t care what she thinks; he knows that he’s just met someone very special."

The cast and premiere date have yet to be announced, but BBC says it’s committed to having a trans actress play the lead character. Awesome, awesome, awesome to hear.
