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."
