October 2015 Trans Talk on 90.1 KKFI


Hello everyone! On Trans Talk this month I am going to cover three topics. First I’ll speak with Lanie Gray Macaulay and Hannah Miller, teachers at Olathe North High School who sponsor their Gay-Straight Alliance. Next I will speak with SOFFA leader Fiona Nowling and Marsha, a transgender woman who has been separated from many in her family as a result of her transition, and we will discuss the problems faced by transgender persons during the holidays. Finally, I will interview Oliver Bohanon and Natalie Hicks, who are working on a transgender documentary film project right here in Kansas City.

I will also give a breakdown of some of the LGBT news this week, and I will finish up the show with the community calendar update. I do hope you will be able to join me this Saturday, October 24 at 1:00 pm on 90.1 KKFI, Kansas City Community Radio! You can also stream the program live on kkfi.org.

Jennifer Finney Boylan’s December Project will Lift Your Spirits

Advertised as “Trans? Holidays got you down? WE WILL CALL YOU ON THE PHONE,” this is an ambitious project where either Jennifer or three other associates will call you to give you a friendly voice this season. Jennifer, Mara Keisling (director of the National Center for Transgender Equality), Dylan Scholinski (director of Sent(a)mental Studios), and Helen Boyd (Professor at Lawrence University) began this project in 2011, and it has since been a very welcome success during the holidays.
