It continues to shock me that in a group of oppressed people (like the transgender community) how much there is oppression/pre-judgment/racism in our community.  You would think a person that has been pre-judged simply for how they dress would be a little more understanding about people being pre-judged on the color of their skin.  Well, this show is going to open some eyes (if we have open ears and hearts) about the race issues in and about the transgender community.  I will have two guests that are good friends of mine that will offer a perspective on this topic that might be a little direct and maybe even difficult for some to hear but that is needed.  Jaison Gardner and Monica Roberts join me for this very important topic.  Jaison is a community activist and organizer in the Louisville area and a board member of the Fairness Campaign  along with a co-founder and President of the Derby City Black Pride Organization.  Monica Roberts is our other vrey special guest.  She is a trans human rights advocate and blogger.   Many of you might know her blog, "TransGriot" Blog.  Monica is also involved in activist work in the Houston, TX area.  Listeners can call in live during the show.  Thanks!
