Co-hosts Jacob Anderson-Minshall and Rebecca Nay shared their own stories of being gender variant children.

Then spoke with Jenn Burleton, who, in the mid-1960’s, as a 12-year-old became one of the first—albeit unsanctioned—trans youth to begin hormone treatments; after she discovered Dr. Harry Benjamin’s The Transsexual Phenomenon and began stealing her mother’s Premarin. Jenn later founded TransActive Education & Advocacy (transactiveonline.org), an organization, committed to providing education and resources to family and service providers of gender vairant youth.Burleton also produced Out Of The Shadows, the short film about gender variant children that has been viewed over 300,000 times on YouTube.
 
Several listeners called into the show to comment and ask questions. 

This ended the first half of the show.  The second half is a second download.
