Show your support for transwoman in Spokane, Washington

kimpossible68 is reporting to the County Jail for 7 days tomorrow. Kim is being held in contempt of court for being transgendered and refusing to dress like a man in order to get a job. Kim, a full time student and parent of two awesome girls, has been ordered to pay $1000 a month in child support. After losing her previous job because she was outed, the judge refused to reduce the amount of the support order and held Kim in contempt saying that being transgendered "is a choice, just like being a punk rocker". In the past, Kim has been ordered not to pick her girls up at school because having a transgendered parent will embarass them. (No one asked the girls, by the way)

Kim is to report to County Jail at 10 a.m. At 9 a.m. we want all fair minded people to show up and make some noise. Let's give Kim a big sendoff and show the court that transgendered people have our support and discrimination will not go be tolerated.

For more info on Kim's story, listen to KYRS (92.3 or 95.3 fm) today at 4 p.m., Kim will be interviewed on the show Queer Sounds. For those not in Spokane, click here and you can listen via webcast. Call in at 509.747.3807 wherever you are to show your support.

Kim volunteers for Stop The Clock and CounterCrisis NW, she is a caring, generous friend and she got the Spokane audience to give her a three minute ovation after she performed in the Vagina Monologues. In other words, she's completely amazing.

We love you Kim!
