00:00 Introduction
09:59 Question of the week:
Question: " I have a former fianc´┐Ż (a m2f transgender person) who is now serving a life sentence in prison and getting absolutely no counseling for her condition. Where can a Significant other or friend and/or family member find help in order to help someone they love who is in prison and in fear of being outed only to be beaten, raped or killed. Currently my friend and I correspond and have a relationship on a spiritual level and I cannot give you specific info about her because of her concerns as stated above. This is a very serious matter and there are thousands of sexual assaults in prison. " (from: "Fabled M")
