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.

Classic Film: The Las Vegas Story

Many have seen Las Vegas as a place of opportunity, only to leave town feeling like a loser. Vegas isn’t for everyone. It takes a certain kind of person to thrive in such a high-stakes, cut-throat environment. 1952’s The Las Vegas Story explores the kinds of characters who would try their luck there and the unfortunate suckers who would be better off steering clear of Sin City.

“If you’re in doubt as to whether or not a question is inappropriate, here’s a helpful tip. Ask yourself if you would feel comfortable asking that question to a cisgender person. Generally speaking we as a society don’t around asking people about their private parts. They’re called private for a reason.”
Ian Thomas Malone, The Transgender Manifesto

“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

“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.”
