I want to make sure all of you see this. It has a lot to do with trans, but what it really is is a great primer on sex and gender for everyone, one of the best I've ever seen.

I was just so excited to see something so well done like this in video form that says what we try to here so often so well.

That is so wonderful.

I recently saw another great video about trans people geared towards healthcare providers (http://sou.edu/su/qrc/transhealth.html ). It makes me feel so good seeing this stuff.

Wow! That is an excellent video. Awesome awesome awesome. I love the very clear definitions of all the different areas, because so many people get them mixed up. And it was cool to hear from the 3 different perspectives. Great <3

I really enjoyed watching that! It's informative, honest but also upbeat, and all the people interviewed seem very likable!

It'd be cool to see similar video interviews with trans people from different countries and locations because you know that NYC is very open and diverse but that there are trans people elsewhere, too. [Smile] (I know it's a "duh" but I think of 'But I'm a Cheerleader' where the main character comes out and then ask, "So, can you tell me where lesbians live and how they act? Can you teach me?")
