A couple of weeks ago, Part I of this series aired and included a brief introduction to the topic of Transgender Identity and shed some light on the social issues faced by those who identity as transgender.

In today’s Part II, you will hear from another Northern New Mexico voice who tells us about the discrimination she’s faced as a biological parent seeking custody …and beyond.
