We've come a long way in some regards, but there's still a long way to go in creating a society where your rights don't depend on your gender or race.

Consider what it means to be transgender. We do that in this segment, with Aydin Olson-Kennedy, a Clinical Social Worker at the Los Angeles Gender Center and Dr. Johanna "Jo" Olson-Kennedy, Medical Director for the Center for Transyouth Health & Development at the Children’s Hospital in L.A.

The couple stops by the studio in advance of a workshop called "Supporting Transgender Youth," happening September 18 from 9 AM to 4 PM at Southern Oregon University's Stevenson Union.
