A place at the table
As i type this, I'm 30,000 or so feet above the United States, likely somewhere over Louisiana or Texas. I've just gotten back from speaking at a small college town where I was informed, quite sincerely, that there were two transgender folks within the city. Both were male-to-female transsexuals of varying backgrounds, and both are fairly isolated.
