From Chaz Bono, to Caitlyn Jenner, to the political fight over which bathroom you're allowed to use, Transgender issues have become increasingly topical - to say the least. Recently, it was suggested by the President of The United States that transgender people are unfit to serve in the US Military. Why do people feel so strongly about this? Are we (the royal, human *we*) more transphobic than homophobic? Maybe I'm showing my ignorance by saying this, but why is this such an uncomfortable topic for many of us? I consider myself progressive and non-judgmental, but this is an area where I have little experience and I just don't even know where to start - which is exactly why it's an important discussion. Join us for an interview with Dr. Kristie Overstreet. She is a clinical sexologist and psychotherapist specializing in transgender issues. (She's kind of a big deal when it comes to this stuff and you should definitely check out here website here) Dr. Overstreet answers all of our difficult and embarrassing questions and does a great job of evoking empathy around this difficult topic. Join us for a fun and candid interview and find out how you can act like a decent human being and show some sensitivity and respect to people who are just a tiny bit different from you. Let's start by losing the word "tranny".
