Today on Your Call: What are transgender people facing today?

On today's Your Call, we’re talking about the trans* movement for social and legal equality. Thirty-four states can still deny employment, housing, or education to those who identify as transgender. What are the realities of those who live under the trans* label? Where are we seeing positives in education in activism? Join us at 10 or leave a comment at yourcallradio.org. What role should the government play in protecting trans* people? How far has society come in terms of accepting gender variance? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality

Matt Wood, attorney at the Transgender Law Center

Sam Davis, genderqueer and transgender activist
