Lost in Transition: Meet the Transgender Princess of 'Oz'
I saw The Wizard of Oz for the first time last year. That's a pretty good movie! You all should watch this obscure, little-seen, never-discussed motion picture right away. Like everything else I do in my life, I took the most roundabout way possible towards L Frank Baum's magical Land of Oz, shown in that movie in glorious Technicolor and featuring the singing talents of Julie Garland. I'm mildly allergic to musicals, and since I used to be young and boring, any movie older than I was got written off sight unseen. But then, I learnt about the character of Princess Ozma, and not long after that, I realized I was transgender --- so the path I took into Oz started with her.
