Marti Abernathey

Marti Abernathey is the founder of the Transadvocate and the previous managing editor.

Abernathey has worn many different hats, including that of podcaster, activist, and radiologic technologist.

She’s been a part of various internet radio ventures such as TSR Live!, The T-Party, and The Radical Trannies, TransFM, and Sodium Pentathol Sunday.

As an advocate she’s previously been involved with the Indiana Transgender Rights Advocacy Alliance, Rock Indiana Campaign for Equality, and the National Transgender Advocacy Coalition. She’s taken vital roles as a grass roots community organizer in The Indianapolis Tax Day Protest (2003), The Indy Pride HRC Protest (2004), Transgender Day of Remembrance (2004), Indiana’s Witch Hunt (2005), and the Rally At The Statehouse (the largest ever GLBT protest in Indiana – 3/2005).

In 2008 she was a delegate from Indiana to the Democratic National Convention and a member of Barack Obama’s LGBT Steering and Policy Committee.

  • Too bad I wasn’t in front of the PC when Kathleen made the comment about Ashley Love being at a deficit and the other comment about being restricted by The Huffington Post.

    That’s bullshit; Ashley has two blogs, where she’s in charge, not the Huffington Post. If there’s a matter that prevents her from defending herself from Autumn Sandeen and her goon squad, then she should say so, and perhaps leave the Facebook alone.

    The other point I’d like to make is that while’s there’s no arguing the fact equality is a top priority, one cannot be oblivious to those who engage in any type of revisionism or political or religious whitewashing.

    If Kathleen doesn’t want to concern herself with that, that’s her choice; but next time don’t complain when the next person has their history erased on a website run by three people who are behaving like tools.

      Nelson, would you consider Mike Rogers and you to have the same level of blog readership? Or say Bilerico and you? Autumn’s platform is so much bigger than hers, to the point of rediculiousness. The Huffington Post has ties to GayINC. Don’t forget that Hillary Rosen served as the Political Director and Washington Editor-at Large for HuffPo.

      • Here you are now using Mike Rogers and his celebrity as a weapon against another person, and you’re also making excuses for Autumn Sandeen and The Huffington Post. I’m not sure how to respond to this. Even though this your place, I believe you hurt your credibility here.

          Saying someone has a bigger audience isn’t a weapon, it’s simply stating a fact. I’m not making excuses for anyone. I’m saying that Ashley’s voice/blog footprint is a hell of a lot smaller than Autumn’s. To the point that saying they both have an equal platform to speak is absurd.

          • I’m not sure how you can lend credence to a website involving so called equality advocates who parallel the anti-gay/trans opposition.

            If I’m not mistaken, I could swear that last week I overheard a conversation between you and Ethan to build your own online community.

            I must have been mistaken.

            Perhaps because I’m on the G team, I might be missing something, or perhaps I’m not conveying adequality my thoughts to this comment box.

            I don’t know. From where I sit, I thought I was seeing a moment in which people have had enough of all the country club LGBT’s who call themselves equality advocates, and instead, it’s just people a bunch of people begging to be let in, because they like the coffee being served there, even though it tastes and smells like shit, and it’s not available anywhere else.
