00:00 Introduction
11:50 Question of the week
" Does anyone know of a surgeon that will do FTM (Top or Bottom or both) surgery for free in exchange for filming and/or interviewing privileges or at least do the surgery first and then take payments or is there some kind of fund or scholarship type of thing that can help out FTM's that are poor, broke, in debt, etc. "

Chris previously appeared on GenderTalk on March 22, 1999 (program #198) to talk about "Making Faces," her play about a person's journey from boyhood to womanhood.
