We welcome Kelly Simon of ACLU-Oregon to discuss the case of Michalle Wright. As the Associated Press reported last week, "The state prison system in Oregon will provide a transgender inmate with hormone therapy, bras and women's underwear and will consider transferring her to the state's only all-women's prison as part of a settlement agreement announced Tuesday."

After, we'll be joined by Robin Will, president of the Gay/Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest (GLAPN), to discuss LGBTQ History Month (celebrated in the US in October). For more info on GLAPN, visit this page


Bonus: here is a downloadable version of a LGBTQ History Coloring Book!
