  • "Darlene"  - Thanks Nancy & Gordene!
    Just getting to watch your tv shows. Love your GenderTalk radio shows - been listening to them every day for the last 6 months. My wife downloads a few at a time so we can listen in our players. Thanks for so much inspiration and information! The shows are really priceless to me as I've become increasingly comfortable coming out with my transgender orientation in the last 6 months. Would like to email you directly, is that possible?

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I happen to be watching the local public channel (2) in San Luis Obispo and your show came on. When you acknowledged my city I was crazy happy. My hope is for your program to help my local community understand what Transgender is. I have been taking hormones for 4 years now. I really should have done this 20 years ago. I am 48 years of age. I imagine I was not ready to accept it all yet. Anyway thanks for all the great work you both do. Look forward to seeing more. I wonder if you have or would consider doing a show regarding transgenderism and aids. I also live with aids. Much love, Amanda
