Episode Info:

Today we’re launching our second annual pride month celebration. This episode is especially important for a few reasons. One of them being, this week marks one year since I came out as transgender here on the podcast.

It’s also very important to me because we were joined by Amanda Jette Knox to talk about trans exclusion in the LGBT community. Amanda is an award-winning writer, LGBTQ advocate and public speaker from Ottawa, Canada. Her work has been featured in both national and international publications, including O Magazine, Chatelaine (SHAT-uh-lane), and Upworthy.

She’s also the author of the upcoming book, “Love Lives Here: A Story of Thriving in a Transgender Family” which will be available this summer from Penguin Random House Canada.

I’m so excited to have this opportunity for a lot of reasons. Most importantly, though, is the recent news about trans exclusions in healthcare and government protections in the United States. Being excluded from the general public is hard enough, but there’s been a movement for exclusion in the LGBT community as well. Luckily, advocates like Amanda are standing up and saying enough is enough in a movement recognized online by the handle, L with the T.

That, and more, today on Our Fractured Minds.
