a very proud shout out to my friend Karina, for being honored on KCET as a local hero. Karina has been the heart and soul of the local TG community for many years. She seems to be at every meeting and on every board or commission and marching in every protest or parade to advance our issues and avoid discrimination. If that weren't enough, she is the lifeforce that keeps the local pageant scene and Imperial Court system in LA an active and vital one. Every year, sometimes to little fanfare or thanks, she is there promoting and hosting these great community events. She was there when I did my few pageants a few years back and is always still encouraging me to do another one, overlooking how bad I was back then :) And if all that still were not enough, she is also always out in the scene supporting the clubs and her very extended family where nearly every girl is her daughter or sister. All that, and not spandex, or a golden lariat, is whats make her the real Wonderwoman.
