As the transgender community gains wider visibility, there's been a growing awareness of the transformation involved in a person's gender transition.  But what about the Trans person's friends, family, co-workers or partners?  How must they change in order to accept the transgender person they care about?

Bathroom Access and Safety

program date: 
Mon, 04/20/2009

While there are few things more primal than the need to use the bathroom many trans and gender variant individuals find that answering natures call is needlessly complicated and often downright dangerous. Few gendered spaces are as vehemently patrolled and the penality for violating gender norms can range from ejection to arrest to bodily harm. Bathroom acess isn't just a trans issue, as many single parents discover when faced with signs baring them from from accompanying non-same-sex children into public restrooms or dressing rooms.

Intersex: Medicalization of Natural Diversity

program date: 
Mon, 05/18/2009

"Is it a boy or a girl?"

It's the first question asked after the birth of a baby.  But sometimes the answer isn't obvious?  In about one out of every 1,500 births a child is born so noticeably atypical in terms of genitalia that a specialist is called in. Out of every thousand birth one to two children have traditionally been exposed to surgery to "normalize" the appearance of their genitals. Even more people are born with subtler forms of sex anatomy variations some of which won't show up until later in life.

Is there a T in Gay Pride?

program date: 
Mon, 06/15/2009

Portland’s Gay Pride wrapped this last weekend.  Despite the “unity” theme, at least one group chose this year to go their separate way.  Why did trans march organizers decide to postpone their event—renamed Gender (Free) For All—until August 1st? Do trans people really belong in the LGBQ community anyway?  Especially if they no longer identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual—or if they never did?

We addressed these questions and more. We were joined by three guests, including an organizer from the Gender (Free) For All; a local trans political activist; and a woman with Harry  Benjamin's  Syndrome

Gender and Prison

program date: 
Mon, 07/20/2009

Across this country there are dozens of women forced to serve time in mens’ correctional institutions. Our sex-segregated facilities aren’t the friendliest places for those with non conforming genders. Transgender women, especially those who haven’t undergone a total physical transformation including sex reassignment surgeries, are still regularly housed with male inmates. What is that experience like? What can be done to improve the situation? What happens to a trans person who is arrested in Portland? What other ways does gender impact the experience of inmates?

Class and Gender

program date: 
Mon, 08/17/2009

This episode examines the issues of class and gender from some different perspectives.  In 2009, have women acheived equality?  In 2008, Hillary Clinton was a candidate for President of the United States and Sarah Palin was a VP nominee.  Numbers of women CEO's of major corporations are increasing.  Nancy Pelosi serves as the Speaker of the House in Congress and just recently, Sonia Sotomayor was appointed to the U.S. Supreme court.

Women may have come a long way, but have women arrived in all segments of our society?  Where are we as a society?
