TRANNIES ON TV!?

  Broadcast in Social Networking

Call in to speak with the host

This week we'll be discussing how trannies are handled in the media. In the past few years, there has been more media focus than ever on the transgender community. At one point, the extent of our media coverage was the Jerry Springer show and Maury Povich.. Recently, we crossed the line into mainstream with pioneers such as Kandice Kane, Laverne Cox, Isis King, and Leiomy Maldanado.. But are we still getting the respect we deserve? Doors are mostly being open by way of reality television. With reality tv, we're able to take a more intimate look at the struggles and discrimination that some of these girls had to endure.. Tonight we'll be discussing some of these shows and how they dealt with their transgender star/contestant.. We'll be talking about some of the comments made on air towards these transgenders.. And we'll also ask the question, Is this exposure benefiting the Transgender community? Are these shows aimed toward helping the public learn about us, or are we just a Freakshow ploy to get ratings? On a side note, I'll also be making a special announcement for all of my Lil Rock listeners who are still wrapped up in the QueenDingaling/Lil Rock scandal.. DON'T MISS IT!
