Jane Ellen & Mary Frances Fairfax (firstname.lastname@example.org) on crossdressing and their relationship, and their work in the crossdressing and transgender communities. Mary talks about how she feels about Jane's crossdressing, and about SPICE, Spouses and Partners International Conference for Education, that they co-founded. Jane talks about Tri-Ess, the leading organization for heterosexual crossdressers, spouses/partners and families, of which Jane is Board Chairperson.
We also talked with them about activism, and Jane said (at 75:05): "The hardest thing we have to do with crossdressers is to get them to own transgender people's struggle for human rights. There's a tendancy among crossdressers to say 'Oh well, if the going gets tough I can always flee back into my masculine identity, and this is primarily for the other transgendered people. This is absolutely as wrong as wrong can be. Tri-Ess and crossdressers organizations and wives need to work shoulder to shoulder with every other transgender activist and organization to get what I call Human Rights. This is not a radical cause or a left-wing cause or a right-wing cause, it's a human cause."
