Transgender Issues on Eastern Standard

Jun 22, 2016

Lexington's Annual Pride celebration is this weekend, happening on the tail of devastating news such as the mass shooting in Orlando. In the midst of all the discussions involving LGBT issues, Eastern Standard will focus on the oft-forgotten T: Transgender rights and issues. Kentucky recently joined the lawsuit with other states over the controversial matter at hand of Transgender restrooms.

On the show: Eric Alexander of TransLex and Tuesday Meadows, transgender advocates; Richard Nelson of the Commonwealth Policy Center; and Chad Hundley of Pride Community Services Organization from Lexington.
