Ellie 2.0 Radio – June 17, 2019

Our theme is “speaking up for the outcasts” and we start with a Pride Month remembrance of Sylvia Rivera, a transgender activist who fought for societal acceptance of gender variant people; she also had to fight for acceptance by the gay and lesbian community. The Big Interview is with Dr. Thomas Adams of Better Futures MN, which works to give formerly incarcerated humans a second chance. My C-Block addresses the new Catholic Church “instruction” that transgender people aren’t entitled to be seen as “real” and that the idea of one’s brain not matching their body isn’t valid. Really?
