This week we interview Diana Morningstar, a trans woman, environmental activist, and witch. Here is a brief bio:

I am a transsexual woman living in Sonoma County. I am bisexual and polyamorous. I have been an environmental activist, and in Queer Nation in the ’90’s. I write software, make graphic art, play piano and harp, and love to bicycle and hike. I feel most at home in a forest by moonlight. I honor the divine feminine, and identify as a witch and an amazon. I identify as a radical feminist, despite the efforts of trans exclusionists, and wish to see our world liberated from patriarchal oppression. I also identify as a nerd and have a degree in Biophysics. I am 56 years old, and relatively recently transitioned. I am willing to talk about my gender transition on The Queer Life to help more people become aware of the issues we face as trans people, and I will do what I can to make life less difficult for the next generation of queer people of all kinds. I support inclusion within queer community, and freedom for all of us to self define according to our own authentic feelings. If anyone wants to get under the transgender umbrella with me, feel free, it’s not as if it’s keeping the rain out much.
