  6. In February of 2017, ICE agents arrested Estrella, an undocumented trans woman, inside an El Paso courthouse. Estrella was there after filing for a protective order, testifying in a domestic abuse hearing against her U.S. citizen ex-boyfriend. Her case became national news — it was the first time that federal immigration agents had ever arrested someone at court. Estrella was later sentenced to serve nine years behind bars for a non-violent crime that she has always maintained her abuser forced her to participate in. In this episode of Latino USA Estrella takes us into the maximum-security Texas men's prison where she is serving out her sentence. Through intimate phone conversation with Maria Hinojosa, we follow Estrella through her first years of incarceration — through the joys of transitioning and finally feeling at home in her body, to the dangers that come from being a woman in one of Texas' most infamous men's prisons. We also learn about a surprising accusation that puts Estrella's relationship with Maria at risk.
  7. Marizol's transition not only tested her determination to live life on her own terms, it also tested her lifelong bond to her sister Selenis.  A failing marriage, an acting career on the rocks, and mental health woes did not allow Selenis to be there for her beloved sister as much as she would have liked. In their memoir, "My Sister: How One Sibling's Transition Changed Us Both,"  they recount the difficult decisions they each had to make to be whole and to love each other through unimaginable hurt.Follow Marizol @iam_marizol on Twitter and IG; follow Selenis on Twitter @selenis_leyva and IG @selenisleyvaofficial.

  8. Earlier this year, North Carolina passed HB2, the so-called "bathroom bill." The law bans anyone from using a public restroom that doesn't match up with his/her biological sex. HB2 put the state in the middle of a national fight about gender. But North Carolina is also home to one of the few gender clinics for kids in the South, at Duke University's Children's Hospital. This week, we spend a day in that gender clinic, the only one in North Carolina. We wanted to know how a clinic like this one operates in this political climate. And we wanted to find out how these patients are coping. Dr. Deanna Adkins, a pediatric endocrinologist, started the clinic a year ago. Over the course of our day, we met three of her very different patients. Drew Adams is a 15-year-old trans man who came with his mom, Erica, all the way from Jacksonville, Florida. On the drive up, Drew wore a T-shirt with "This is What Trans Looks Like" printed on it. He told us he decided to change out of it before he stopped for a bathroom break in North Carolina; he used the men's room. When Dr. Adkins told Drew that not only would he get a prescription for testosterone, but that he could give himself his first shot that very day, Drew stood up and cheered. Dr. Deanna Adkins, the pediatric endocrinologist in charge of the Duke Child and Adolescent Gender Care Clinic (Mary Harris) We also shadowed Dr. Adkins's appointment with Jaye, an 18-year-old African-American trans woman. Jaye's experience has been very different from Drew's; her family has had a harder time accepting her transition. She also worries a lot about her safety, especially in North Carolina, and she can tick off the names of a number of trans women of color who have been killed over the last few years. But, like Drew, Jaye was thrilled when Dr. Adkins handed her a prescription for estrogen. She planned to pick it up that day. At the end of the day, we met Dr. Adkins's last patient, Martin, and his mom, Karen (we decided to use pseudonyms for them both). Martin was born a girl and came out as trans a year and a half ago, after a long struggle with depression and anxiety. At first, his mom worried that this was one more expression of Martin's unhappiness. But Martin's transition has completely changed his outlook. His mom said he used to be withdrawn; when his depression was at its lowest point, he started cutting himself and had to be hospitalized. Now, she says, "It's more like we've become friends again and we've reconnected. I think it's because he realizes that I accept him for who he is and I'm going to support him." This fall, Martin plans to present as a boy when he returns to school in Raleigh. When we asked him which bathroom he’ll use, he told us it will depend how brave he’s feeling.
  9. Just as all history is contested, just as memory is contested, Stonewall is contested. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, we partner with the team at Making Gay History to bring you Sylvia’s Stonewall. In never-before-heard recordings of iconic LGBTQ activist Sylvia Riveria, we not only see that night through her eyes, but also the explosion of activism that followed. Mixing, Sound design and Score by Frank Lopez.
  10. How do you find the words for your gender? How do you ask for different pronouns? Would it be easier in French? Caitlin and Amrou make a pilgrimage to the legendary gay & lesbian bookshop Gay’s The Word to get into the language of gender with linguist and London Queer Muslims founder Martin Hasani DiMaggio. Caitlin asks their best mate Stephen for the sorely needed straight white male perspective on changing the pronouns you use for a friend.
  11. Video games can give you the option of customizing the look of your character -- and even change their gender. For many transgender players, that option played a significant role in their lives. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
  12. Assigned as a female at birth, this week's caller has been socially and medically transitioning for close to four years. He answers some of the most common questions cis people have for trans people. He also tells Gethard what questions you probably should not ask a trans person. And somehow, this involves the Italian ham known on The Sopranos as "gabagool."This episode is brought to you by Squarespace (www.squarespace.com code: CG), Mailchimp (www.mailchimp.com), Talkspace (www.talkspace.com/beautiful), and Bombas (www.bombas.com/stories).
  13. We process the first presidential debate with the help of Jamilah King, host of The Mother Jones Podcast. And the debut of Ian Alexander on Star Trek; named Gray, in the Star Trek franchise.

  14. When he was three years old, my son informed me that she was actually my daughter. I'm now the mother of a happy, confident little transgender girl, but it took a while to get here.
