Amy Ray helps ‘Real Man’ exploration [photos]

It was a queer, queer night at Atlanta’s Star Bar on Saturday when transgender author T. Cooper’s “Real Man Adventures” book launch became a full-fledged artistic event with Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls and trans performance artist Scott Turner Schofield.

Cooper’s latest book became the kickoff point for a lesbian stud and FTM celebration. Performances by the locally bred Ray (top photo) and Schofield and others were enhanced by discussions with all three headliners on topics of gender roles, masculinity, feminism and beyond.

The event drew a large crowd and benefited Charis Circle, the non-profit programming arm of gay Atlanta’s own Charis Books & More, the nation’s oldest lesbian-feminist book store.
