Take me to your leader
All My Children producers announced that they will make history Thursday as the first soap to introduce a transgender character. “Flamboyant rock star” Zarf will kiss resident lesbian Bianca and then begin to make the transition from a man into a woman. Wow, that must be some kiss. Increased GLBT visibility is always a good thing. But, seriously, Zarf? No one could come up with a better, somewhat gender-neutral, somewhat rock-n-roll name than Zarf? No name should remind people of both space aliens and a ride on the porcelain bus.
