"Word of Mouth" How The Trans+ Community Found Itself

TV-TS Tapestry

TV-TS Tapestry (1979-1995), later known as Transgender Tapestry (1995-2009), was a magazine published by the International Foundation for Gender Education (IFGE). While it began as a plain paper newsletter, Tapestry later moved to a glossy magazine format. This allowed it to stand out from other less professional-looking trans publications, and to blend in on mainstream magazine racks.

Along with its name, Tapestry’s design changed over time. Here is a selection of issues from both TV-TS Tapestry and Transgender Tapestry showing what this evolution looked like.
