"Hello, my name is Kathryn. I am a transsexual. I am writing for a friend who does not have a computer or web access. My friend Susan (also a transsexual) is on medicade here in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has been on HRT for over four years. All this time, Medicade has paid for her hormones. Now, Medicade wants to stop the payments for HRT therapy for transsexuals. This is a note to you for your consideration and a request for help if you are able. "
(From: Kathryn)

28:04 Hal Fuller's Twisted Nasty News:
  • Pro-family group calls for IRS investigation of married gays
  • OK bill to prohibit recognition of same-sex adoption
  • Wesleyan to adopt gender-neutral housing policy
  • Trans persons to be delegates to DNC
  • Raleigh NC judge rejects queer posters
  • Kuwaiti court recognizes sex change
  • Salon charges more for "ethnic" cuts
40:45 Is the Human Rights Campaign complicit in excluding transgender persons from inclusion in federal anti-discrimination and hate crimes legislation? Despite persistent lobbying efforts by transgender activists, we have yet to see the federal level enactment of any acknowledgement of the victimization of trans persons. Ethan St. Pierre & Karen Martin share their perspectives on recent lobbying activity, and a Transexual Menace demonstration against HRC.

68:24 Just because a film festival is labelled "GLBT" doesn't mean that it truly represents alll kinds of GLBT persons. We talked with Boston's Museum of Fine Arts GLBT Film Festival cooerdinater James Nadeau about the issues of transgender inclusion and representation in their festival for 2004.
