Ian Thomas Malone is an author, transgender activist, and yogi from Greenwich, CT. She is a graduate of Boston College, where she founded The Rock at Boston College. Ian has published thousands of articles on a variety of subjects. Her favorite things to share on social media are pictures of her golden retriever Georgie and her collection of stuffed animals.

Ian believes firmly that “there’s more to life than books you know, but not much more,” a quote from her hero Morrissey. When she’s not reading, writing, or teaching yoga, she can probably be found in a pool playing water polo. She aspires to move to the Hundred Acre Wood someday, though she hopes it has wi-fi by then.

The only reasonable expectation one could have heading into Best F(r)iends Vol. Two was that it would be a very strange movie. A Twitter reply from the official movie account stating that this cut was an early preview version only added to the mystique of Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero’s latest team up, one where the significance of the parenthesized R in the title really comes to life.

The Transgender Manifesto by Ian Thomas Malone
“The rejection of your identity by your pastor or your parents is not a rejection of you, the person. Only you as the image someone else wants you to be. That image will never make you happy.”
Ian Thomas Malone
The Transgender Manifesto by Ian Thomas Malone
“The conservative ideology sees LGBT rights as an affront to the traditional way of life, for some reason. We are attacked as phonies, pretenders, even perverts, just for being who we are. There are people who wish for us to go back into the shadows, the closet, never to return.

Many of these people who wish to deny us our very legitimacy, who denounce us as mentally ill deviants, spend an hour each week paying homage to an ever-present, yet non-interventionist man in the sky. They go to courts across the land to defend their right to praise that uncorroborated deity at the expense of other people’s civil liberties. To them, we the living, the transgender people who walk the earth, are fake, but the man up there, He is real.”

Ian Thomas Malone, The Transgender Manifesto

“The people who claim that being transgender is a choice are right on one regard. Living freely as the person you were meant to be is, in fact, a choice. You can choose not to. The decision to transition reflect the time spent grappling with that difficult question:

Are you going to give yourself a real chance to be happy?”
