00:00 Introduction
11:36 Question of the Week:
Question: If a male to female transexual has the final surgery can she legally marry a man in Massachusetts? If not how can this be changed?
Question: I am curious after after rehearing Dallas Denny's interview last December regarding the current ratio of MtF transsexuals who are heteroxexual identified. My feeling is that currently a majority are attracted to women, and are lesbian identified. Ms. Denny stated that gender programs in the 70's flatly rejected SRS candidates other than post-op heterosexuals. (from Anneliese, Ventura, CA)

Later he tells us about a couple of presidential candidates we don't hear about in the mainstream media.
The Transgender People of Color email list: "TG POC is a discussion-oriented listserv for Trans People of Color as well as our significant others and allies. This listserv was created in 1998 by Nadyalec, an Arab/Muslim FTM activist, so TG/TS People of Color could "have a place for us to talk about the issues that we face, share support and information, and build communities." To our knowledge, this is the only international listserv for Trans People of Color in the world. We look forward to having you as part of our community.

69:53 Alyson Meiselman is, in her own words, the "profoundly disappointed" counsel of record who petitioned the US Supreme Court on the Christie Lee Littleton case, the case where a post-operative male to female transsexual was declared by a judge to be a man. Alyson, a transwoman and 20 year family law attorney, tells us about what happened in the case, and about the hate mail she and the team of trans attorneys working on this case received from transgender persons who objected to her efforts in the nastiest ways. She speculates on the decision's likely consequences for the trans community as well as for transsexuals specifically.
