The animus toward the transgender community in this country continues to be disturbing. We’ve reported on the Outbeat News segment the alarming number of transgender people murdered each year and as we shared last month, the violence is targeted equally at transgender men and women.

I think all of this animus is fueled by fear and by a lack of understanding of what being transgender really means. Our guest this month is Dr. Sherman Leis, who is a leading doctor specializing in transgender related surgeries. He breaks this topic down for us and explains how the medical profession is approaching gender dysphoria today.
