Trans & Cross Dressing History in the West

program date: 
Tue, 10/20/2009

Did you ever hear stories about Little Jo Monaghan, the short cowboy of the Old West who turned out to have a female body? Or Rose of the Wild Bunch, the one-time prostitute turned outlaw who dressed in male garb?  Or maybe you know the story of Christine Jorgenson the GI turned bombshell, and you're wondering who the first American trans man was.  Would you be surprised to know he was raised in Oregon?

Safety in schools for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer youth

program date: 
Tue, 10/06/2009

Youth are safe in schools, right? We'd like to think so. The truth is safety in school depends on many factors. Often, LGBTQ youth face verbal harrassment, sometimes daily. Some LGBTQ youth face violence in school. The Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) 2007 National School Climate Survey found some frightening statistics. Please read their research report to understand what's really going on inside of our schools.

Tonight we speak with Zena, who works with the Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition.

New documentary examines state of Transgender health care

In light of last night's Gender Blender on gender discrimination on health care, I thought I'd share information about a new documentary I just heard about.  Now in pre-production, Southern Comforted: Lives Touched by the Documentary, refers to the award winning documentary Southern Comfort, about the life and death of transgender man Robert Eads, who was refused treatment by more than a dozen medial professionals after he was diagnosed with ovariancancer.  The new film, Southern Comforted: Lives Touched by the Documentary examines how trans health care has changed (or not changed) since Eads died in 1999.  You can see a YouTube promo of the film here:
