Question of the Week
"My closest friend is a TG (M-F). She is almost 57 and had her SRS 3 1/2 years ago. She is living with the woman she married about 14 years ago, before she became a woman. Is she still legally married, or since same sex marriages are not recognized, is that disolved? My friend seems confused as to this situation, so doesn't know if she is able to date others. "

For the first time, GenderTalk takes a close look at a male-to-female sex reassignment surgery. We visit first with Jude Russell, a 42 year old transgendered woman who speaks with us from her hospital room in Trinidad, Colorado, only five days after her SRS procedure. She talks about her whole transition experience, from the decision process that led up to her surgery to how she's feeling just days out of the operating room.
Jude lives in Hartford CT, and is an active member and former executive director of the Connecticut Outreach Society, a Hartford area transgender support group. Jude owns her own engineering and media services consulting company.

There's nothing like personal experience to gain insight into a process, and our guest is the first 'Sex Reassignment' surgeon to have previously gone through the procedure herself. Dr. Marci Bowers, a gynecological surgeon who transitioned in 1997 and was acknowledged as one of 'America's Best Doctors' in 2003, has taken over the longest-running SRS practice in Trinidad, Colorado. She talks about her philosophy and methods openly and in detail.
