Trans Vets Speak Out On Transpositive PDX

This week on TransPositive PDX hosts Jean Bryant, Aiden Vargas and Nicolette Sandra James will be joined by Trans Veterans Andrea Haverkamp and Krystal Atkinson to discuss the recent offensive tweets coming from the Trump administration concerning trans active duty service members. Transpositive PDX airs on Tuesday, August 1st at 6pm on 90.7fm KBOO community radio in Portland or online at

On Wednesday, July 25 the President sent out three Tweets announcing he was shifting previous policy in the armed forces of greater openness and inclusivity regarding Trans service members.  Citing unit cohesiveness and cost of medical procedures the President declared that he was in effect banning Transgender personnel from servin openly in the US armed forces.

We will discuss what this means practically for Trans active service members and what we can do as a community to fight back against the torrent of hatred and Transphobia that the President has unleashed with his announcement.  That's Tuesday, August 1st at 6pm on KBOO community radio 90.7 fm in Portland or online at
