Question of the Week
"I am TG (transgender person) who has been seeing a therapist for some time now and really feel the need to start HRT (hormone replacement therapy). Does this mean that I am basically destined internally for SRS (sex reassignment surgery) or is it OK to just want to be more female than male without transitioning fully? Confused and nervous..."

|40:56||Special Fundraising Message|
Too many people close to trans persons know firsthand what it means to lose a loved one to violence. Our guest is Ethan St. Pierre, whose aunt was a transsexual woman who was brutally murdered in 1995, before Ethan had come out as transgender. Ethan has since become active in transgender activism, and hosts an online talk show called TransFM. We talk with him about the upcoming Transgender Day of Remembrance, his show, and some of the insights he has gained from his journey so far, and he helps us fundraise for WMBR.
Ethan has lived in New England for as long as he can remember. Since the murder of his aunt, he has dedicated much of his life to the cause of activism. Ethan is a true ladies' man (ahem), but he is wholly devoted to his partner, Karen. They live in the suburbs with their two dogs and a parrot (who really is just resting). Ethan is the producer and co-host of TransFM, a transgender comedy show on adult humor and issues.
