Please join us this week on Transpositive PDX as we have a conversation with Taylor Brown on the first ever Transgender March on Washington which happened on Sunday, September 29th.  We will also have a conversation with Christine Watts of Civil Unrest about disability advocacy within the LGBTQIA2+ community.  We will be joined by co-host Nico Serra for this conversation.

Taylor Brown is a Staff Attorney in the Headquarters of Lambda Legal, the oldest and largest legal organization dedicated to advancing the full civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and people living with HIV. Taylor also serves as a director on the board of directors for the National Trans Bar Association. 

Christine Watts is the founder/president of Civil Unrest bicycle club, a disability advocacy group and an LGBTQIA2+ safe space. All club members of Civil Unrest bicycle club are disabled. 

Describing the group Christine says, “We ride slow, we have fun, and we laugh at the law.”

Civil Unrest has been doing something called the Notes of Hope for over a year now. They are notes with kind words or inspirational quotes on the front, and crisis line numbers to call or text on the back. They put up notes on several bridges in the downtown Portland area every club ride each month.

Transpositive is a monthly program in Portland exploring themes important to those who identify as Transgender, Gender Non Binary and Gender Non-Conforming. Transpositive tries to connect listeners with the ongoing activist, arts, culture, and dialogue happening in Portland and beyond.
