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.

Bob Ruether is a docent at the park. He guides me along trails lined with ancient manzanita trees, where everything is still. It’s like walking through a painting. The air is damp from an early morning rain. Down a hill a group of teenage boys from a halfway house pull out sandwiches and sit at a bench with their teacher.
