Gender Identity and Civil Rights

Hosted by

The movement called LGBT — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender -- has campaigned successfully for the rights of homosexuals. But the same activists have left out the rights of transgender people. Now that Bradley Manning is Chelsea Manning, will that make a difference? Will positive role models begin turning up in popular culture? Also, President Obama comes under increasing pressure to act on Syria, and the world is watching the massive fire on the edge of Yosemite National Park, and consequences are already being felt in San Francisco.
