Initial Post from Brylo

Hello World!

This is the initial post from brylo, a psuedonym that we are using to post to bilerico. Though we loathe the reasons why we must do it, there is a reality to being trans in Indiana (or any state where it is perfectly legal to fire someone for being gay or trans) that we have to consider the ramifications of being outed on the job.

So the plan is to post as brylo and highlight who is actually posting in the signature. Today bry*Lo* is posting. Think of it as a yin-yang thing. Sometimes you get the yin and sometimes you're stuck with the yang! :-D

People in the community will likely recognize who brylo refers to. Think Bennifer -- just not as sexy, not as Latin, not as rich, and well, it must be said, more committed to one another.

We are happy to be participating in this community effort and thank bil for providing this space for broadening our community discourse.

Thanks for tuning in.
