  1. Wow. The transition from invisibility is hard - in a lot of ways. Interesting that a country (Nepal) allows a third gender on its identification cards and other countries are considering it, yet no activist could define what that means. What are the precise contours of that definition?

  2. Mark - Unfortunately no one from the Third Gender community was on the show to offer up their perspective and folks were unwilling to speak on others' behalf.

    Here's an article from when Nepal passed the third gender ID legislation that might help shed some light: http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/third-gender-finally-recognized-nepal240512

  3. I notice few comments here. And I guess I know why.

    Is AJ, while seeming to promote gay rights, anti-semitic?
    Anti-Isreal?

    Maybe a stupid question, but help me out here folks.
    Why the sudden silence?
