Question of the week
Question: "Is your show aware that some of us in the transgendered community are conservative Republicans? I ask because you have "Bush Watch" and it seems that the show is dominated by a decisively liberal agenda. Is it fair to assume that the whole transgendered community shares your politics?"
(from A Listener Who Likes Political Balance, Springfield, MA)
Question: "I am young and transgendered, but I find that I can't stand people in the transgendered community because I am young and conservative and most of the people I meet in the TG community are staunch democrats and it seems like their transgenderism is the center of their lives. While I am transgendered, I try not to let it color my views on everything and dominate my whole life because I am a lot of other things, is there anything wrong with that? "
(from Black Dahlia, Connecticut)

She in the process of negotiating with Lifetime television for a movie about her life, tentatively titled "The Dana Rivers Story." Dana has taken advantage of the opportunity presented by the media attention to advocate strongly and capably on behalf of the transgender community.
We talked with Dana about the media and about how her ideas about family have been impacted by what has happened.
