How gender transition impacts friends and loved ones
As the transgender community gains visibility, more attention is paid to the major transformations trans folk undergo in gender transition. But what 's it like for everyone around that trans individual? What about co-workers, family, friends and loved ones that have to adjust to the changes, to new gender pronouns, new names?
Tune in to tonight's Gender Blender radio show to find out. Co-Hosts Rebecca Nay and Jacob Anderson-Minshall will be talking with several partners (including Jacob's own co-conspirator, Diane, Editor in Chief of Curve --the world's largest lesbian magazine) and trans guy Brooks Nelson, whose new film Switch: A Community in Transitiondelves into the topic.
