In Memory of Alexander John "Bear" Goodrum

October 3, 1960 - September 28, 2002

Alexander John Goodrum, 41.

The transgender community of Tucson, Arizona is very sad to report the passing of Alexander John "Bear" Goodrum. He would have turned 42 years old on October 3. Alexander was the creator, founder, and director of TGNet Arizona (www.tgnetarizona.org), a grassroots transgender advocacy and resource organization based in Arizona.

TGNet Arizona's most recent success was the groundbreaking Arizona Transgender Workplace Project (ATWORK), an informational and educational program to help employers better understand the issues, needs, and rights of gender-variant employees and applicants. The groundbreaking first employers' workshop was held in Tucson in August 2002.

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Alexander had been involved as an activist in GLBT organizing and social justice issues since 1980 in Chicago, San Francisco and since 1996, in Tucson. He was African-American, Transgender (Female-to-Male), queer-identified (bisexual), and disabled, and worked extensively in each of those communities. In addition to the TGNet Arizona web site, he published numerous articles and papers, and is perhaps best known for his widely published paper, Gender Identity 101: A Transgender Primer.
