The T in the CLE: TransPop: U.S. Transgender Population Health Survey

Soon there  will be the first nationwide population based study on the health of transgender populations in the US.  The study is a collaboration between the Williams Institute at UCLA, Fenway Institute, and Columbia University, and will examine the healthcare needs of trans people.  The study will also provide a better estimate of the size of transgender populations within the US.

I interviewed two of the study’s investigators a year ago.  We talked about the the study’s purpose and goals.

The T in the CLE: 2008 interview with Julia Serano

This is the first episode of my new podcast call The T in the CLE re-posting an interview I did with Julia Serano in 2008.

I had done a podcast called Radio-Free Transburgh when I was living in Pittsburgh.  It was a podcast where I interviewed people about trans related topics, mostly around trans related academic, activist, and research issues.  It ended due to various issues, but I’ve been wanted to restart it here in Cleveland.  To start I’ll be re-posting interviews I did in 2008.  To start out I’m posting an Interview I did with Julia Serano who at the time published her book Whipping Girl in 2007.    Below is the show blurb I originally used.

Julia Serano is an Oakland, California-based writer, spoken word performer, trans activist, and biologist. Julia is the author of Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity (to be published by Seal Press in June, 2007), a collection of personal essays that examines the ways in which misogyny frames many popular stereotypes and assumptions about transsexual women. Her other writings have appeared in queer, feminist, and pop culture magazines such as Bitch, Clamor, Kitchen Sink, LiP, make/shift, and Transgender Tapestry, and excerpts of her work have appeared in The Believer, The San Francisco Chronicle, and on NPR. In recent years, Julia has gained notoriety in transgender, queer, and feminist circles for her unique insights into gender. She has been invited to speak about transgender and trans women’s issues at numerous universities, at queer, women’s studies, psychology and philosophy-themed conferences, and her writings have been used as teaching materials in college-level gender studies courses across the United States.
