Question of the Week
"I'm a Male to Female transexual. I'm married to a wonderful woman (Julie) who is my wife of 13 years. We have 3 great children ages 20, 17,13. In 2002 I came out to my wife and children. It took a year to have all three of my children come around, my 17-year-old daughter was my biggest critic now my greatest advocate. My wife is my life partner, my soul mate she knows changing my male body to a woman's body won't change the love I feel for her or hers for me. The only objection by her to my GRS is that she is afraid the state of Pennsylvania will disavow our marriage once the surgery is done. Being a married couple is very important to her. Can the state do this?

Independent filmmaker Diana Wilson helped chart the territory traversed by reigning Canadian downhill mountain bike champion Michelle Dumaresq from her first day of compettion to her representation of Canada in international competition, as producer of a documentary entitled "100% Woman". She talks with us about how the project started and the experience of producing the piece, which she also co-wrote.
|61:17||Reigning Canadian downhill mountain bike champion Michelle Dumaresq joins us to talk about her experience as an 'out' transsexual woman competing against non-transsexual women. Not only is she a champion cyclist, but she also transitioned (from living as male to living as a woman) on the job as a welder in a boat manufacturing company.|
|75:41||Karen Duthie, downhill mountain bike rider and director and co-writer of the documentary "100% Woman", talks with us about the film, her friend Michelle, and the responses of other friends and riders to Michelle's participation in the women's competition.|
