Are cis women facing violent transphobia? Absolutely.

July 10, 2018 ·

Today we talk to a community news reporter who uncovered a story straight news refuses to cover: a cis woman is beaten in Colorado for being “trans,” told that she didn’t belong in Trump’s America. Additionally, we have Gwen Smith’s Gender Nation and updates from TransAdvocae Divisions in Brazil and the UK.

The TA Podcast is an intergenerational show featuring a trans Baby Boomer, Gen Xer, and Millennial that considers the issues affecting the lives of trans and intersex people.
