It Doesn't Get Much More Mainstream Than This

Okay, if you can ignore that the character’s name is Zarf, it seems a good thing that the venerable soap “All My Children” is introducing a character who, it is said, will transition from male to female on the show. “Zarf” is currently a musician (a bit of borrowed “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”?) and plans seem to be to follow the transition from beginning to end. Let’s all pray that they get some good consultants and create a story line that is honest and accurate.
