Comedian and transgender activist Dan Glowststick is opening up about his latest project, “Crossdressers”, and the process of transitioning from male to female.
Glowstick, known as Dan the Genderfluid, made the announcement on Instagram.
“I just want to tell you that I’ve been in this world for 13 years.
I’m now officially transitioning into a man.
I’ll be doing a new show called ‘Crossdressing’ and I have a bunch of people coming in and it’s going to be a real big thing,” he said.
Growlstick, who is originally from Texas, is a transgender man who is often referred to as the “genderfluid”.
He first started to use the term genderfluid in 2011, when he began performing as the comedian Dan Glow.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is widely used in the US and other countries to control weeds, as well as pesticides and herbicides, which have caused environmental and health problems.
In February 2018, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it would ban glyphosate from the US, citing research that shows it can cause birth defects.
A spokesperson for the EPA told Al Jazeera the agency was “confident that we are doing the right thing for the environment and the health of our citizens”.
In a separate announcement on Wednesday, the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) called on President Donald Trump to reverse the decision and allow transgender people to serve in the military.
“The president should let the transgender military serve, and allow those who want to serve to do so in a manner that aligns with their gender identity,” NCTE executive director Mara Keisling said in a statement.
“By allowing transgender people into the military, President Trump has made it harder for transgender people in our society to serve their country.
The president needs to honor the wishes of the American people and protect the rights of transgender service members.”
In March, the Department of Defense announced it would start accepting transgender people for military service, with a new policy that allows people to enlist as either a male or female.
