Susan Vreeland, author of 3 novels including the NY Ttimes bestselling "Girl in Hyacinth Blue", "The Passion of Artemesia" and "The Forest Lover", joins us to talk about the lives into which she gives us glimpses with her work.

69:30 To better understand the real challenges and outcomes faced by people who embark on gender transition, we periodically revisit a few people who generously share their experiences and observations during the course of their "journey". Virginia Stephenson joins us once again to update us on her transition and trans activism in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. Virginia has been a leading 'out' trans activist and facilitator in Albuquerque for many years, and has been a primary force behind passage of the most progressive slate of statewide trans-protective legislation in the country.
