32:20 Question of the Week

"I am a very concerned mother of an adult son who told me 5 years ago that in his head and heart he is a girl. I have supported him both emotionally and financially but he needs more help. He has been reading on line for years and understands the issues but I need help inorder to help him. He feels I am his only friend and supporter and he has mentioned suicide weekly. He is under a councelors care weekly and monthly sees a doctor for medicine to try to keep all his issues under control. He is ADD, OC, very intelligent and Transgender. I want him and/or her to live and be happy. With such a strong personality and so so so many talents, can someone help me help HER. Where do I go from here? "

42:10 Evelien's Diary, entry 25: "Making or Breaking"

Evelien's website:

46:46 For nearly all transpersons struggling to feed and house themselves, our urban shelters are anything but welcoming. In the face of this systematic exclusion, there have been many efforts over the years to establish shelters specifically for trans persons in need. One of the few success stories in this effort comes from Dee Dee Chamblee, founder and director of LaGender, inc., which combats homelessness, HIV and AIDS. According to Dee Dee, LaGender is iriented towards trans persons but open to the GLBT community, working to make the 'invisble population' visible in the bible belt.
