Clare McNab, of the trans activist group Press For Change, on forthcoming legislation in England that will change the way that transsexuals are regarded in that country

Terry Tafoya, American Indian researcher and faculty member at the Kinsey Insititute, on the Institute, his work there and a new study on the health and wholeness of native two spirit communities

" When you're told by a medical person or researcher 'This is what you are', that smacks of colonialism. But if you are from a community and you say,'This is what I want you to call me,' that's what empowerment is all about. "
- Dr. Terry Tafoya
