Transgender rights are very much in the news right now, but the challenges facing transgender people include much more than bathroom access. We’ll talk with transgender adults about navigating life in Maine in 2017 – what has changed for them, and what has not. One of our guests hosts a transgender issues program on Community Television and has just written a book about being a transgender man and a Christian, and another is a Maine business owner who identifies as neither a man or woman.
Guests: Matthew Francis - Community Television host, Author of new book: My Resurrected Spirit: Triumph Over Tragedy & Transgender Identity
Mea Tavares - Business Owner - Arcana in Portland. Transgender Person
Jeanette Andonian, Associate Professor, Director of School of Social Work & MSW Program, University of Southern Maine
