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

Marianne Barisonek interviews peace activist and former political candidate Cindy Sheehan.

Cindy Sheehan founded Gold Star Families for Peace, which is a member organization of the United for Peace and Justice anti-war coalition. Sheehan first captured media headlines in August 2005 when she and a group of her supporters camped out in front of President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, demanding that Bush meet with her to discuss the death of her son Casey, a U.S. Army soldier who in April 2004 had been killed in combat in the Iraq War. Sheehan dubbed the location of her protest “Camp Casey,” in honor of her son.
