Let's Talk Transgender Visibility

Let’s Talk New Mexico 11/29 8a: This week, we’re focusing on transgender folks who thrive in our community, the growing acceptance in younger generations, and gains being made around the country. Media narratives often emphasize the discrimination and violence transgender people face. Those are essential stories, but we want to add to the conversation.

What should young transgender people know about the possibilities in their futures? Who are some of the transgender people you look up to who’ve had an impact on your life? Do you have tips for enjoying the holidays, even if family members are struggling with acceptance? How can cisgender people be better allies? What can we do to respect or celebrate our transgender friends and family members? Email LetsTalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show.
