Trinidad Colorado – Cowboys, Transsexuals and Size 12 Pumps?

What the heck?  Are you kidding? Certainly you can’t be serious!

Seems there are some movie makers that may know a lot more about Transsexuals than they do about our town, Trinidad Colorado

Here is a comment about a new film titled Trinidad Colorado

What was the inspiration for this film?

PJ and Jay: We actually first learned about Trinidad at a friend’s dinner party, from a woman who had just passed through this small town in Colorado that was known as “the sex change capital of the world.” She said it was a town filled with cowboys and transsexuals, that it had lots of women’s clothing stores that carried things like size 12 pumps, and that it was a place where people arrived men and left women. We along with everyone at the table just couldn’t believe this was true.

Personally I have been here since 1994 or so and have only known a few people that had made the switch and neither of them live here now but certainly a few people that have made the change may live here.

So what they are really saying is that every other resident of Trinidad either looks like a Cowboy or a Transsexual. Guess we had better all start wearing Cowboy Hats and size 12 Cowboy Boots.

Are they talking about the same Trinidad Colorado? Size 12 pumps in Trinidad, are you serious?

I think that either I am totally out of touch and oblivious to these things or the now deceased Dr. Biber and Marci Bowers are really good at turning Transsexuals into Cowboys……certainly no disrespect to Dr. Biber or Marci Bowers as one can only respect their skills.

This ain’t no twilight zone folks and someone is either smoking something very illegal or are wearing rose colored glasses that turns everyone in Trinidad into looking like either a Transsexual or a Cowboy, an neither is the truth.

Listen I personally have no problems with anyone changing their gender if that is what they want to do. What I do have a problem with is someone trying to make our wonderful little town sound like its filled with just Transsexuals and Cowboys. Our town and its residents are much more diverse and unique than this label and description. I guess that is why they call it Movie Making…..

That certainly isn’t the Trinidad Colorado that I know. Maybe someone needs to make a movie about the real non fictional Trinidad Colorado.

What about you? Tell us about the Trinidad that you know.
