Hello everyone! Welcome to June’s edition of Trans Talk! We’re kicking off the show with the transgender news of the month as usual, then we’re going to continue our special series of transgender film discussion in honor of all those who are stuck inside and wanting films to binge watch. Today we will be discussing the touching film “Boy Meets Girl”, which is notable for featuring an actual transgender person playing – wait for it – a transgender character. Yes I know, absolutely groundbreaking. Rachael Cady is in our studio today with us to review this film with us, the first official sanctioned in-studio guest since the COVID-19 crisis unfolded. Then we will speak with Psychology Professor Anna Pope from the University of Kansas about the origins and impacts of the transphobia recently expressed by author J.K. Rowling, and how people who want to still love the art can maybe separate it from the artist.
We do hope you will be able to join us this Saturday, June 20th at 1:00 pm on 90.1 KKFI, Kansas City Community Radio! You can also stream the program live on kkfi.org, or via various apps on your phone.
